          How about Rickey Henderson as one of the answers for #5. I'm pretty sure he played a season in Boston and had to hit at least one HR, no?

              sorry, I messed up question number 5, it has been reworded. Baylor is correct for #4, but there is also a third person. Looks like I need a little better research.

              Duffy Lewis played for Washington, too, so doesn't qualify for #1

                    5- Bob Watson and I think but may be wrong about George Scott playing briefly for the Yankees before retiring.

                      Correct for #1 and #5

                      Correct, I thought this would be the difficult one since he only played 1 year with the Yankees and 2 with the Sox

                      Watson only played 3 years with the Yankees and 1 with the Redsox, and didn't hit enough homeruns for any of these lists. George Scott is correct for #5. Hit 1 homerun in 16 games for the Yankees in his last year








                      One more to go on #5
