  • Name the only player...

    ...whose surname begins with:

    1. Aase, Don

    2. Abner, Shawn

    3. Abstein, Bill

    4. Acre, Mark

    5. Adlesh, Dave

    6. Ables, Harry

    7. Afenir, Troy

    8. Affeldt, Jeremy

    9. Agbayani, Benny

    10. Agee, Tommie

    No looking it up...that would obviously give the answers away.

    Hopefully this isn't too easy.

              I'll give you one of them: Harry Ables. He played only a handful of games at the turn of the century. The last one, however, I think someone might know. A catcher, he played his entire career for Houston in the 1960s.

                      Agn would have to be old Red Sox catcher Sam Agnew. (He's part of an old trivia question of which team could make a battery of Nixon & Agnew -- though Willard Nixon pitched for Boston much later.)

                        That's correct.

                          I don't quite get what is supposed to be difficult about this.

                          If I asked, "What is Mike Schmidt's last name?", would that be any less appropriate a question that this?
                          Holding a pitcher accountable for how many runs his team scores is like holding the designated hitter accountable for how many runs his team allows.

                          An individual statistic is meaningful only if it is based strictly on what the player does and not on what the other players on his team do.

                          Contrary to what most baseball fans claim, a pitched ball which is hit into play is not a strike.

                            Are all trivia questions and threads supposed to be difficult?

                              Anyone want to give a go at the last ones? "Zal" played in the early 1900s, "Zan" was a pitcher in the 1950s and 1960s, "Zap" played in the 1930s and "Agl" played in the 1910s.
