    How about this? Two former Yankees have been caught stealing twice in one inning although neither one was playing with the Yanks at the time. Who are they?

    Here's one I ran across recently. Who was the first Venezuelan to play for the Yankees?

    One of them was traded by the Yankees to a National League team in the early 90's and the other one hit over 300 lifetime HR's and won an MVP before he became a member of the Yankees.

    Roberto Kelly is one...still one to go. In fact, the other guy was the first player ever to do this, I believe.

    I cheated and looked it up. Never would have guessed him. According to my source there was a third, who the best hint I can think of with him is he was involved in one of the biggest (impact wise) trades of the last 25 years. Also it says that Kelly was with the Yankees when he did it.

    You're right, Kelly was with the Yankees at the time. There were five in all.

    He does indeed, but others preceded him...such as Luis Sojo.
    The answer to this question goes back to 1976. He was a favorite of Billy Martin's and that's why the Yankees picked him up.

    Since there were no takers here, I'll clear the board: the answer is Cesar Tovar. Unfortunately, his time with the Yankees marked the end of his big-league career.

    Here's one where the answer is a little unexpected: who is the Yankees' career leader in triples?

    Don Baylor was the ex-Yankee with over 300 HRs that was thrown out twice in the same inning trying to steal.
