  • Hall of Famers with "60s"

    No, not Hall of Famers elected in the 1960s or who played mostly in that decade... I'm talking about a certain club:

    There are 6 Hall of Famers who have at had at least one 30-30 season (30 homers + 30 steals). Can you name them?

    Three hints:
    • The earliest occurrence among this group was in 1956.
    • Three players joined this club in the 1990s.
    • Three did it more than once.

    Hank Aaron (1963, 44-31)
    Barry Larkin (1996, 33-36)
    Jeff Bagwell (1997, 43-31; 1999, 42-30)
    Larry Walker (1997, 49-33)

            The sixth was one of the BBWAA's two newest electees, the Spongebob Shirt man himself, Larry Walker, who hit 49 dingers and stole 33 bases in 1997.
