    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

    5) I'm pretty sure Buck O'Neil was the first African American coach. Not sure about the team and the year.

    9) The four consecutive double plays in one game I believe was Joe Torre. (For extra credit, Felix Millan was on base for all four). Again, not sure about the year.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

      Buck O'Neil is correct

      Joe Torre is not correct (as the first to do it)

              Number Ten is to the Yankees for Ron Guidry, who did not show much in parts of two seasons prior to 1977.

              I know this because I am a superhero.
              Your Second Base Coach
              Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

                If in number six you mean Public Address Announcer...

                Sherry Davis was hired as the first full-time female public-address announcer in the major leagues, with the San Francisco Giants. She beat out 500 applicants for the job and worked with the team from 1993-99.

                If you are talking about play by play, and just "calling a game", I think that was Gayle Gardner. In 1993, Gardner became the first woman ever to broadcast play-by-play of a baseball game, calling the action of a game between the Cincinnati Reds and Colorado Rockies.

                If you mean first for the whole season, as an employee of the team... ugh! You got me on that one.

                  these are all correct, Bill Veeck instituted the names and the other AL owners threw up a protest, it was ruled that each team could make its own decision about names

                    this is correct and how history might have changed if Guidry was traded

                      actually one play by play announcer predates this, BUT a "color" woman analyst even predates the play by play person
