BFGarner:lol no problem I just started smoking cigars 3 weeks ago and Ive been using the forums even less. I didn't even know there were rules. But now I know.
Knowing is half the battle!!
Scrambler:Chicago Cubs, Ryne Sandberg.
But, I think the guy you're looking for is James "Catfish" Hunter who threw a perfect game against the Minnesota Twins in 1968, one of only 17 perfect games in baseball history.
I love baseball trivia.
Now for my question, I think I'll keep with the baseball theme. This one is a two-parter: What is my favorite baseball team, and who from that team is my favorite player? Here are some starter hints to narrow things down.
1: This is a national league team.
2: The player in question is retired now, but has been recognized as one of the best second-basemen of all time.
If no one gets this within a couple days, hints will follow as needed. Please one guess per person per 24 hour period, thanks and happy bidding .
kaspera, my parents are both from Illinois, so I'm an inherent Cubby fan, even though I'm more than half the country away. And Ryno was my favorite player to watch when I was a little kid, he was probably towards the tail end of his career by then, but he was my favorite all the same. However, the Padres are my California team.
has won a World Series.
is an expansion team.
accomplished something done by only 19 other players.
was active through most of the 90's.
More hints to follow if necessary.
Another hint, the player served 2 seperate stints with this team.
