Oh, would you rather a Favre question? Yes, you would.

Actually, my question was going to be about the largest capacity stadiums in the world, but when I looked it up and saw that a) I was very wrong and b)the largest (by 20,000) was in North Korea, I decided against it.

And then the next one was very sneaky, but I might ask it anyways.

Anyways, who was the first player not named George Herman Ruth to hit over 50 home runs in a season?

I think Greenberg was the second non-Babe to hit 50. I'm looking for the dide before him.

And, Sometimes it's hard to keep North Korea and Mexico straight in my mind, but I feel I did a good job of that here. Although I did think Stadia Azteca was the biggest, it's actually like fourth or fifth.

And of course, William. Rules are on the first page, answer my question.

uh uh, mate, give credit where due, i looked it up, greenberg was 4th, foxx was 3rd......and 2nd is a great one, nice question, spurgy

about the man in question: Although only 5'6" tall, he weighed 195 pounds, mostly muscle, and had an 18" neck but only size-6 shoes. One sports writer wrote that he was built along the lines of a beer keg, and not wholly unfamiliar with its contents.

OK, Thought Neph's hints would give it away. My guy is probably better known for holding (still) the record for RBIs in a season, the same year he hit 50+ for the first time (and second player to do so after the Babe)

Hack Wilson.

I knew that he was RBI record setter, so your hint gave it to me. It did not occur to me the HR number (second to Babe) was Hack's though.

Let's try something different:

Give me a category, and I will give you a question (so for example, if hockey fans are checking in, I will give you a hockey question to keep the thread moving)
