    I somehow don’t have that card but have 3 just like it with Yastrzemski, Bench and Perry as they all retired that year.

     

    Tremendous find...funny enough I didn’t use that card and researched it all on my own

    Question #5

    These two HOFers were great great hitters but for whatever reasons were left in the minors way too long even though they were tearing up the minors...these two guys totaled over 1400 career hits in the minors and both also missed out on a lot more hits over 2 strike shortened seasons.

    Name these 2 HOF hitters

    Larry Walker?

    This is tough. I'm assuming 94-95 for the two strike shortened years?

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 11:33 AM

    And given the criteria, we're looking for 2 HOFers with about 2000 career hits?

    They total about 5250 hits

    Nope, decent guess though

    I’ll go Edgar and Frank Thomas.

    Piazza?

    Trying to think of HOFers from that era. Who weren’t singles hitters. Thome, Griffey came up too early. 

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 11:56 AM

    I'll guess Chipper Jones and Vladimer Guerrero.

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 11:56 AM

    Of course, 5,200 combined hits means one of them was a more average type guy. Wade Boggs? He came up at 25 I think. Which is nuts he got to 3,000 starting so late and missing parts of 2 seasons.

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 11:59 AM

    Boggs seems like a great guess if he was 25 when he came up.

    Didn’t chipper debut at like 20? Vladdy could be a good guess. No clue how old he was.

    Ryno

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 12:04 PM

    I think Vlad would’ve been after the strike though, right? 

    Sat, Apr 11, 2020 12:06 PM

    Vlad started in 96 or 97
