Our old friend pfattkatt would have gotten this, I am sure, as I never succeeded in stumping him even once with sports trivia. 

Here goes: 

Rickey Henderson is one of two players that ever stole bases in four consecutive decades. 

Who is the other player?

It's an old question, there are at least 4 now...

One did it pretty recently bottomlee, you are right, but I don't understand why the OOTP 2013 database did not change the question since one of the other two did have 5 SBs in a decade before his major career got going. 

Still, the other one I was thinking of is not someone you would easily guess.

I know Ted Williams is one of the others
3/25/2014 5:31 PM
Yep. Williams, Henderson, Raines and Vizquel are the four.

You got it,  Mickey   Lolich who finished in second for CY Young in that year was also a switch hitter

Oh man, I was thinking it might even still be Mickey Mantle. Forgot about those tricky pitchers.

Who is the only player in the hof who hit a home run his first at bat and never hit another one in his career?

How many players in the top 30 list for active home run leaders have played for the Yankees?
4/2/2014 4:54 AM
Let's see: top 30? (and no peeking here): 

Ruth
Mantle
Reggie Jackson
Gehrig
Dimaggio (?) - hmm not sure anymore if he is still in the top 30.

Then, thinking of players that made short appearances as Yankees or who were not only with the Yankees: 

Not sure about Cecil Fielder, Daryl Strawberry, David Justice (don't think so). Is Dave Winfield on the list? I don't think so but he could be. 

I am going to guess four, the top four on the list above. I am pretty sure I am not right.
