here's an easier one.

What is the second oldest ballpark still in use today, in the AL and NL. What was the date of the first games played in both of these ballparks?


2nd oldest NL - Dodger Stadium, 04-10-1962

2nd oldest AL - Yankee Stadium, 04-18-1923

Of course the oldest are Wrigley in the NL and Fenway in the AL.


OK aegis, let me find a good one for you.

1. Honus Wagner 1907-08 (shared '07 with Ty Cobb.)

2. Rogers Hornsby 1928.

4. Rogers Hornsby 1922-.401, 1924-.424, 1925-.403.

5. Ty Cobb 1909-10.

6. Tris Speaker of Cleveland.

7. Harry Heilman 1923, 1925, 1926, and 1927.

8. Johnny Mize 1947 with the Giants, he hit 51 and suprisingly he batted lefty and threw righty. (you don't see that very often they're usually switch hitters).

9. Bob Meusel in 1925, he hit 33.

10. good question.

TRD, you got the first one right, but missed the second one. Aegis covered it for you though.


These old school questions are pretty tough.

Real nice aegis, you only missed #5. I'll give you a hint, he did it with two different teams.

And #10 is a pretty tough one too.

Pretty soon we'll all be ready for "Sports Jeopardy".

Where i looked it up for number two it gave me that answer? Sorry guys you are wrong in one way they both did it but Delahanty was the first to do it.. 3 players have done it . Ty Cobb, Ed Delahanty, and Rogers Hornsby 3 times a piece.

Ty Cobb the only AL player...Delahanty the FIRST NL player....Hornsby the second NL player to do it.

Delahanty hit...

.404 1894
.404 1895
.410 1899

All for Philadelphia

my list was from 1900 through today, so that could be how i missed it, dang incomplete lists.

Looks like PA might have the same list Aegis....

So i guess the question in the first place was wrong...
and we both got the 2 players...

Good work there TRD, I looked it up and it seems you are correct although I found .407 in 1894 but it's over .400 nonetheless.


My info must have been 1900+ as well.


Anyone care to try #10??

If someone doesn't get it first i'll have a crack at Q.10 later!

I believe the elusive answer to question ten is Larry Dobe, who swatted in 32 HR's in 1952 and 1954 (led the AL both of those years).


Who are the only 3 people to win a triple crown and also compile over 3,000 hits in his career?

1 - Carl Yastrzemski (1967, 3419 hits)
2 - Ty Cobb (1909, 4189) somehow he won it with just 9 homers.

3 - Nap Lajoie (1901, 3242)


Frank Robinson won the Triple Crown in 1966 and retired with 2,943 career hits, just 57 shy.

Roger Hornsby won the Crown twice and had 2,930 hits.


When I first read the question, the first name that came to mind was Ted Williams. I was surprised to find that he retired with "just" 2,654 hits. He won the Crown twice, in '42 and '47.

OK, I have a really tough one.



What two players in baseball history hit their first career homerun in their last career at-bat???




BTW, anybody is welcome to jump in and answer the questions or feel free to post your own. :tum:

Excellent work PA, and fast. now i have another one for everyone, i'm a Braves fan so this next question is about the braves.

The Atlanta Braves haven't always been in atlanta or gone by the name of the Braves, so my question is how many times have they changed their names, what were the other names they used, and what years did they go by these names?
