Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which pitcher set a Major League record by committing 16 balks in one season?

2. Who set an American League career record for being intentionally walked over 225 times with one team in his career?

3. This pitcher must not have had a manager, because he was allowed to give up six home runs in one game, setting an American League record. Who was this hardluck pitcher?

Answer: Tommy Thomas

Thomas was part of the dismal St. Louis Browns in 1936. Believe it or not, Hall of Fame great Rogers Hornsby was the manager in that season. He let Thomas dish up six home runs on June 27, including two by Yankee Frankie Crosetti. Thomas went 11-9 in the season and strangely enough, averaged a home run every 15 innings in his career.

4. Which Hall of Fame great was the first in baseball history to hit five grand slams in one season?

Answer: Ernie Banks

Banks was a career Chicago Cub from 1953-1971. He was runner-up for the Rookie of the Year Award, and won the NL MVP in 1958 and 1959. In 1955, Ernie banged out five grand salamis for the Cubs, 44 home runs for the season, but the Cubs still finished in sixth place of eight NL teams.

5. Which slugger in 1956 set a Major League record by hitting eight home runs in eight consecutive games?

Answer: Dale Long

Long played with six teams in his 10-season career, the most with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 1956 season was his best by banging out 27 home runs. The Pirates still finished 27 games back of the NL pennant-winning Brooklyn Dodgers. The first baseman retired with 132 career round-trippers.

6. Some players just cannot get enough of the game. Who was the first player that retired and just kept coming back to baseball, playing in five different decades?

Answer: Nick Altrock

Altrock was a left-handed pitcher who began his career with the 1898 National League Louisville Colonels. He left baseball, then came back with the 1902 AL Boston Americans. Nick retired in 1909 again with the Senators. He came back with the Senators from 1912-1924, and was there to experience Washington's first World Series crown in 1924. He retired again, but yet again came back for a one-game appearance in 1933. Minoso also accomplished this by playing in five decades off and on from 1949-1980.

7. Throwing no-hitters in one's career is great. But, on the other side of the coin, one might feel slighted when they throw multiple one-hitters, just missing out on a no-no. Which pitcher who threw multiple no-hitters in their career, also set a Major League record by throwing 12 one-hitters?

Answer: Bob Feller

Bob was a career Cleveland Indian from 1936-1956. Feller threw three no-hitters in his remarkable career and also threw 12 one-hitters. The great Nolan Ryan would later come along and tie Bob's record with 12. Radbourn threw seven one-hitters in the 1880s.

8. Who was the first slugger to hit three home runs in one regular season game, and do it twice in the same season?

Answer: Ted Williams

The 'Splendid Splinter' hit three in a game in May and June of 1957. Sammy Sosa would later break Williams' record by doing this three times in 2001. Babe Ruth retired with 72 multiple home run games, but not three in a game, twice in the same season. Bonds was in the same boat, and had 71 multiple home run games.
The photo is of actor Barry Williams, who was famous for his role as Greg Brady in the television series, "The Brady Bunch".
9. Who was the first left-handed pitcher in history to throw more than 2500 strikeouts with the same American League team?

Answer: Mickey Lolich

Lolich played 13 of his 16 seasons with the Detroit Tigers beginning in 1963. He was there for the Tigers' 1968 World Series crown and took the series MVP Award. He also finished as runner-up in the Cy Young Award voting in the season. Mickey threw 2679 career strikeouts for the Tigers.

10. Which American League pitcher set a record by throwing 13 shutouts in one season, a record that stood throughout the rest of the 20th century?

Answer: Jack Coombs

Although the great Walter Johnson threw a career 110 shutouts, he only threw in double-digits in a season once, his 1913 season with the Senators. Coombs was a Philadelphia Athletic in 1910 when he threw 13. It was his only double-digit shutout season also. Coombs threw only 35 in his career.
