    We have a winner! It was indeed Dave Nilsson.

    I thought there would be more than six on the list, but what do I know. Congratulations, gents.

    Dave Nilsson? He had a pretty good final season, if I remember correctly.

    Clue number three: By not American- I mean he's not from either North or South America

    Clue number one: he was only once a All-Star, and it was during his final season, though he was not a starting player.

    just looked it up. The last one is very tough. I'd recommend more clues

    And Bingo!

    Belle and Bonds don't make it.

    Did Albert Belle do it? He had a pretty good year one of his years in Baltimore, but may have been his first one

    Bill Lange. Unless I missed it Barry Bonds hasn't been guessed, though I don't know about .300.

    Ken Williams 1929 season is indeed the answer to number 6. Clemente does not fill the bill (but good guess).

    The other one is quite recent- in fact it's within the past 15 years.

    Williams is the answer to the 150 PA.But it is KEN Williams(not Ted).I have a feeling that the other answers are mostly pre-1900 players.

    I posted a quiz regarding O`Doul recently(about having more homers than SO in his last season)and thought of him immediately.He fits the bill(for the 150 PA) EXCEPT his OBP was .383.

    Puckett didn't make .400 OBP his final season, but for the third guy at the top of the list you're thinking along the right lines, i.e. someone whose career ended abruptly and tragically.

    Ed Delahanty? I know he was great in his last full season but not sure how much he played in the very last one.
