Who am I? #1 (answered)

Postby Arlo » Mon May 27, 2002 3:34 pm

I spent my entire 22-year playing career with one team, which my affectionate nickname reflects. I won my league's batting title in my second full season, becoming the youngest batting champ in this league so far. That season would turn out to be my career high, but I had eight more seasons over .300. I wasn't too shabby a home run hitter, either.

Who am I?

Nope, not Mr. Cub... Banks only played 19 seasons, for one. You're very close, though - this player began playing in the same season as Banks.

Doh! I was so sure about that one. Played a long-time, all with one team, decent average, lots of HR's.

And there goes my second guess of Stan Musial (not that I know of any affectionate Cardinals-related nicknames for him), as he didn't come up the same year as Ernie. Incidentally, Stan the Man is the answer to one of the as-yet unanswered trivia questions here, although I believe it's fallen to the second page by now.

Ok, I admit that this description is extremely close to Banks, especially the nickname. There really are some amazing similarities between these two, although I had never thought of them as similar players before.

By the way, all Cardinals used to have team related nicknames... players were affectionally called Stan Cardinal Musial or Lou Cardinal Brock. I thought that was a pretty good one, although I haven't heard it used in a while. :-D

You're thinking of the right player. Don't pull your hair out, though - here's a hint: his first and last names, taken together, add up to a word meaning "non-acidic."

Or will that only add to your hair loss? :-o

Hehehe... nice one, chuck. I'll let you finish this one off, since you've earned the run here. Unless someone else swoops in and grabs it... 8-o

Non acidic...hmmm the answer is not my wife cooking then :-D Must be Al Kaline. I kept thinking of Kell, I know he was a tiger also at about the same time but I don't remember why I remember his name.

Got it! It is indeed "Mr Tiger." ;-D I always thought the name was interesting...

George Kell only spent roughly half his career with Detroit, I believe, and I don't know of a Tigerish nickname.

Hope your wife's cooking is merely spicy and not truly acidic! :-D
