Ok here's some Trivia for you to get..!

Starting off with some Pitcher's trivia...


1....Who holds the record for most
consecutive games homered in by a pitcher, what pitcher did it?

2.... What is the highest single-season batting average recorded by a pitcher? (Not counting the ones with a really sad amount of at-bats)

3.... What pitcher holds the career record for most home runs, how many did he have, and what team(s) did he play for?

4.... What is the record for most home runs in a game by a pitcher, who was it and what year?

Feel free to post your own questions once these have been answered

That would be Ken Brett, George's older brother, who hit homers in 4 consecutive games for the Phillies.

Hmmm...I hope this is right.

2 homers in a game done 13 times, most recently by the Phillies Robert Person.

Hmmm, seems to be some confusion over that last question.

You say it was pitcher Jim Tobin of Boston on 5/13/42. This link says there was no Jim Tobin on the '42 RedSox.

www.pubdim.net...

This link here puts a Johnny Tobin on the '45 RedSox, but he played 3rd base.

www.pubdim.net...

This link also shows no Jim Tobin on the '42 RedSox.

www.baseball-reference.com...

I'm not saying you're wrong TRD, just trying to figure it out that's all.

The one thing that did strike me though was, how could an American League pitcher hit three homeruns when the American League has the designated hitter rule where AL pitchers dont bat, just NL pitchers.

My apologies to you TRD, I forgot the Braves ever played in Boston. Well hey, I was young then.


Jim Tobin
Nickname: Abba Dabba
1912-1969

RHP 1937-45 Pirates, Braves , Tigers


"A man of extremes, Tobin led the NL in innings pitched (287.2) and losses (21) in 1942. He also startled the baseball world by hitting three home runs in one game on May 13 that year. A more than respectable hitter, he cracked 17 homers in his nine ML seasons. "

May 13, 1942: Pitcher Jim Tobin of the Boston Braves slams three successive home runs to beat the Chicago Cubs, 65, at Braves Field, the only ML pitcher ever to accomplish this.

I was wrong.

Think there are two players with 23 years service but I don't know the other one, might be why we are confusing each other!

No I edited the bit about Ripken retiring, I know he is not an active player but is still involved in the sport and is thinking of walking away. What I posted didn't read properly so I changed it.

Anyway, there is another player with 23 years service, anyone know who?
