• Good Trivia Question

    Posted by on August 27th, 2013 · Comments (12)

    Via Baseball Digest: There is only one pitcher who surrendered a home run to Cecil Fielder during his 50-homer season in 1990 and to Prince Fielder during his 50-homer campaign in 2007. Who is he?

    (I know the answer. Do you? Hint: He was a 6-time free agent.)

      Wow. I ran through 5 of my usual suspects before I gave up and just looked the answer up. Fantastic trivia question.

      To be fair, it was a bit sad that this guy’s name came up so late in my thoughts.

      This is just a wild ass guess, is it Jamie Moyer?

      Nope.

      FWIW, I had to cheat and look up the answer too.

      Good question. Was trying to think of the pitchers that were active during that span. I don’t know of anyone who was starting or relieving either year whose career spanned that timeframe, so I figured it was someone who converted to reliever. That’s as far as I got.

      Related, Flash Gordon has one son who made the majors, Dee, and another who is a good prospect.
