General Sports Trivia

Postby Sentinel XIV on Tue May 06, 2008 12:38 pm

I did a little searching, and found an old sports trivia thread that died a while ago. I figured, instead of trying to resurrect that one, I'd start a new one.

This thread should include trivia about sports in general, so really anything goes.

You should all know how to do this, so I'll start.

How many teams did Babe Ruth play for during his major league baseball career? Name the teams.

Yes. Oh, and for anyone that doesn't know, it's considered bad form to use Google or any other source of information. Let's try to get these off the top of our noggins.

Not saying you did, rhoges. I just wanted to put that out there.

Who is tied with Willie McCovey on the career home run list, and how many did they hit?

I know Alex Rodriguez just passed him, but I'm unsure of who is tied with him. I know he has 521.

Believe it's either Cesar Tovar or Rod Carew. Somehow, those two are indistinguishable in my mind.

OK, I checked and Tovar's right.

An easy one: Who has hit the most home runs in the American League?

Babe Ruth.

Who was the first guy to hit 400 homeruns and collect 3000 hits in the American League?

Loving the baseball-centric questions right now.

I would say Barry Bonds with the Pirates, but I know it happened waaaaay before that.
