Just posted this on the chat page of one of my SLB leagues, but I thought I'd share because this stuff is fun.
Of course, the problem with internet trivia, especially a question this basic, is that it is easily researched.
If you care to challenge yourself, try to answer without looking it up. If you look it up, please don't answer. -1 internet points if you do.
Really, it doesn't matter. But who are you trying to impress?
OK here goes:
The top 8 spots in Times on Base in a single season (since 1900) belong to 3 guys. This is not the trivia question. It's too easy. Everyone knows it's Ruth, Bonds and Williams.
The question is, who is tied for the next spot. Heck, I'll even tell you one. It's Lou Gehrig. Not surprising. The answer I'm looking for is the guy who is tied with Gehrig and Bonds for the 8th spot. He also holds the next spot (11th).
PS There will be a part two to this question.
