Who are the 4 players that have hit 50 or more Home Runs for four different teams.

Credit goes to the person who gets the 4th person correct.

Im working on this one...but its really hard to get...so far Ive got one...but my method of finding them isnt very good...Im just thinking of guys who might have done it and finding their stats...but I'll keep working on it.
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

is this question written correctly? Because there are 3 that I've found so far that have hit 50 or more for 2 teams but not 4 unless this is a weird tricky question.

The question does not apply to just one season.

Example: Player A hit 65 homers for team W his first 4 years in the majors. Gets traded to team X for 3 years and hits 90 more homers. Then becomes a free agent and signs with team Y for 5 years and hits 150 more homers. He then finishes his career with team Z and hits 50 more homers.

So if (A + W)/z -x =the square root of y, then he fits the criteria?

I'll have it in a sec...Ive got 3 so far...shouldnt be THAT hard to find a fourth.

Alright...

Frank "Robby" Robinson
Fred "Crime Dog" McGriff
Dave "King Kong" Kingman
Ellis "No Nickname to put here" Burks

(Im not sure Robinson's who you wanted...but he fits the criteria since the Cincinnati Redlegs were not the same as the Cincinnati Reds...and he hit 50 for both) I'll keep searching for another one in case this isnt acceptable to you...but it seems good to me

You got 3 out of 4. Robinson is not correct. The Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Redlegs are the same team.

Whoever gets the 4th person will get credit for the answer.

That's all of them!
Ellis Burks - Bos 93, Clev 60, Col 115, SF 60
Dave Kingman - Chi 94, NYM 154, Oak 100, SF 77
Fred McGriff - Atl 130, SD 84, TB 99, Tor 125
Rusty Staub - Det 70, Hou 57, Mon 81, NYM 75

Don Baylor (Cal 141, Balt 57, NYY 71, Bos 47), Greg Vaughn (Mil 169, SD 78, TB 60, Cin 45) and Eddie Murray (Bal 343, Clev 50, LA 65, NYM 43) were close.

Fred McGriff (Cubs 42) and Jose Canseco (Oak 254, Bos 52, Tor 46, Tex 45, TB 43) weren't that far off from doing it with 5 teams.
