To all you baseball fans

I'm trying to find the answer to a trivia question. So far, I've come up short.

There have been 3 players born in Maryland who hit 40 home runs in a season. Who are they?

I've come up with:

1. Babe Ruth (well, duh)

2. Jimmy Foxx

3. ??? I don't know

The answer isn't Al Kaline, Harold Baines, or Cal Ripken. Despite their brilliant careers, none of them ever hit 40 in one year.

Lori,

Been to Fenway lately? Was there last September with my Dad. He was talking about the new configuration with a few neighboring fans when they asked him his opinion on the new set-up. He says "Well, back in 1946..."

WDIK and Stephen, you guys rule! Thank you for answering this one.

Did you know that Brady also had 53 stolen bases in one season? That 50/50 achievement is one of the most exclusive clubs in MLB.

No Name, I was there for an afternoon game on Thursday, 08/04/05. I saw the return of Matt Clement (after that horrifying line drive to his head) and Tek's first ever grand slam. What a great day that was.

You know, it just occurred to me that with all of you guys & gals out there, you should talk to Dave about setting up a board just for you SOX (RED that is)

Fans.
