    Do we have to match the player up with the correct number, or do we just have to guess the player correctly, and you put it in the right place?

                      i'll go with a wacky guess and say Babe Ruth.
                      more sober guesses are: Bob Horner, Kevin Maas and Shane Spencer

                        I'd think Joe DiMaggio's got a chance.

                          Here's another possibility- a guy I saw play a lot. He hit 15 or 16 homers in about a half season his rookie year, then had a pretty strong second season. how about

                          Dick Stuart?
