I was 20 years old when I won my first batting title, but it was not in the Major Leagues. I won six more before I crossed the Pacific Ocean to play with the Mariners in 2001. In 2001, I was the American League Rookie of the Year and the season MVP Award winner. I was the first ever Japanese postion player in the Majors. Who am I?
My first 10 seasons were split between the Mariners and the Rangers. My 11th season found me in New York Yankee uniform. As I was a shortstop, I moved to third base for the sake of the team, and gave way to teammate Derek Jeter. In six of my first 10 seasons, I was in the top ten of the MVP voting. I also hit over 50 home runs in 2001 and 2002. Who am I?

In 1947, I hit the first pinch-hit home run in World Series history. That season was my second in the big leagues. I was a back-up catcher to Aaron Robinson, but took over for the catching duties for the Yankees full time in 1949. I set a record for career home runs by a catcher, hitting 358. I was the American League MVP in 1951, 1954, and 1955. When I retired in 1965, I had gone to 14 World Series, all with the Yankees. My entire career of 19 seasons was with the Yankees, except for four games as a New York Met. I later became a manager. Who am I?
Like the great Sandy Koufax, it took a few seasons before I came around in the Majors. Also like Koufax, I pitched a perfect game, the 18th thrown in the history of the Major Leagues. In 2002, I won my fifth Cy Young Award, pitching for Arizona. Who am I?
Like NBA star, Latrell Sprewell, I had one incident that unfortunately overshadowed my great career. The incident was that I hit Dodger catcher, John Roseboro, in the head with a bat. For the San Francisco Giants, I won 20 games in a season six times in the 1960s. With my high-kick delivery, I had the nickname, 'Dominican Dandy', and ironically, retired as a Dodger in 1975. Who am I?

Babe Ruth hit 238 home runs in his first 10 seasons in the Majors. I surpassed him by hitting 266 in my first 10 seasons.
