Huh, couldn't fit "ONE" in the title.

Anyways, let's play a game! One person (I'll go first) will ask a baseball related question, and the next person must answer it, but cannot ask a question until the question asker verifies the answer is right, (you should re-read that just incase) so here we go! Also I can't stop you but I ask not to cheat.

Who is the ONLY player in MLB history to win a MVP award in both leagues?

Frank Robinson. pretty sure i'm right, and I am not gonna look it up to find out. (okay, i looked it up, i was right)
Albert Pujols could be come the next, and that would be a good bet to take.

Next Question: who did Nolan Ryan strike out for his 5,000th K? hint: Ryan no-hit the same team that year(1990).

Correct!

I believe it was Rickey Henderson in 1989. I won't check as I'm busy right now.

Alright then, here's my question to you (or anybody lurking.)

Easy one here.

Who was the first #1 overall draft pick in MLB history?

Rick (?) Monday, I think, in 1966.

I posted that in the MLB Trivia thread.

Correct indeed, your turn to ask a question.

Okay, two-step question:

1. For what team did Jackie Robinson play for in the Negro League before signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers?
2. What teammate of Jackie's is well-known for being among those who stood up for Robinson when he was criticized?

8 errors, I believe. I remember Inge making 2 errors and the Tigers pitching making a bunch of throwing errors.

Good times, that World Series.

Which pitcher holds the record for most balks in one season?

If you can guess the year correctly as well, good on you.
