Besides Babe Ruth, who is the only player to have at least 200 Home Runs as a batter and at least 1 Game Started as a pitcher?

HR >= 200
GS >= 1

After realizing I submitted the wrong answer, I kept looking and eventually found it. This was a very difficult question.

Haha, well it was bad for me.

I just think you could have been a little more restrictive with the parameters. I spent a lot of time looking at the wrong end of the spectrum. !+) But I suppose that was meant to be the case.

The correct answer is Jimmie Foxx. Yes, saying over 500 home runs probably would have made it easier than saying 200 home runs but I wanted to make the quesiton a little challenging.

Foxx hit 534 career home runs. He also pitched in 9 games for the Phillies in 1945 starting two of them. He finished the season with a 1-0 record and a 1.59 ERA, pretty impressive! On top of that he even caught over 100 games in his career. He's the only 500+ homer guy that caught although Carlos Delgado could join him with another 27 home runs. Hard to believe that Delgado was a catcher in the minors.
