    Joe Adcock held this record for 48 years until Shawn Green broke it in 2002. What was it?

    Most total bases by one player in one MLB game.

    Yep yep! Shawn Green's going to hold it for a long long time.

    Three Braves players have more than 140 strikeouts in a season. Andruw Jones and Dale Murphy are two of them. Who is the other, who once held the record until Jones broke it?

    And I believe you are right.

    He was my favorite Brave batter when he signed with Atlanta. First base after him was brutal until Julio Franco and Adam LaRoche came along.

    This pitcher, who was once part of a very famous Detroit Tiger team (hint hint), was brought on in the middle of the 1991 season and used as a long reliever. He was quite brutal, only participating in one win and had just four scoreless outings, though he pitched 2 or more innings in each stint. Who was he?

    Nope. I'll admit, this one is a little obscure. I wanted to try something harder. The hint is the Detroit Tigers part.

    Yep, just like Robert Fick. He was fine during the year, but that incident in the playoffs with Eric Karros, pure thuggery.

    Good job!

    When Jarrod Saltalamacchia set the record for longest name in MLB history, he beat out a former Brave, who once infamously said that the Braves would fail without him after he was traded to the Marlins. Who was it?

    Yes, sir!

    As of this moment, only two players have career OBPs of .400 in Braves history. Chipper Jones is one. Who is the other?

  14. Well, this might be a stretch, but is it Willie Harris? Right now he has .500 OBP, and it's his first year with the Braves...

    *laughs* Good answer, but that's not really what I'm looking for. The guy I'm thinking of played a LOT longer.

    It took me a long time to think of it, but it has to be Billy Hamilton.

    Yep! That's pretty crazy. I wonder if people will soon realize Chipper Jones's greatness.

    One of the most infamous brawls in Braves history occured when Phillies pitcher Wally Richtie plunked this Braves player leading off in the eighth innning of a 7-3 game, and he kicked Richtie so hard, he got his cleats caught in Richtie's jersey and ripped it. Who was this Braves player?

    Yep! That's the picture I had in mind too.

    Another brawl question: In 1998, this Braves player was getting sick and tired of being plunked (He had 25 HBP in 1998, a career high). When Darren Dreifort, the Dodgers hurler on August 22, plunked him, the Braves player rushed the mound and took a wild swing, and Dreifort ducked. Both benches cleared, and the Brave was ejected. Dreifort was not ejected, but he had to leave the game with a cut on his hand. Who was the Brave?

    Darn you and your cool photos. I was actually at that game. We had the video camera. Dad recorded Walt Weiss. I told him to get it out for Galarraga. He didn't. Then the brawl happened. I let him have it the rest of the game.

    What former Brave had connections with the Minneapolis team of the independent Prarie League that allowed the Braves to trade 24 bats and 72 baseballs for pitcher Kerry Ligtenberg?

    It reminded me once that once a pitcher had an altercation with a Braves catcher, and ended up in a ugly brawl, years later, they ended up teammates.

    Who were they?

    I'll give you a hint, it was the pitcher's only year in Atlanta.
