Don’t know what to do, here’s a clue

Mlblogs Cover9-25-08.jpgI’ve never been a guy who toots his own horn so to speak, but oh hell yea !

I made number seven this week with no major controversy to boost ratings. Best part is, I did it without living on or even near the east or west coast, and with a team that’s not even making a playoff run. All that against me and I still made it.

Who knows?  I could drop off the list next week, but for now I’m going to attribute it to good blogging and leave it at that.

I’ve had eleven guesses so far today on my Baseball Card Trivia question. People have been guessing through comments and through email. Nobody is even warm yet. So here are a few hints..

2. This player had a 15 season career and was and retired a .234 hitter with 106 home runs and 501 RBI in 1384 games.

If you think you know, post your answer in a comment or email it to: therockpileranter@yahoo.com .

I have one more hint and I’ll give it out tomorrow if nobody gets this today.

      Right now I’m working on an entry from the Rockies/Giants game last night…D

The winner is:  

 

 

 

DAN SAUVAGEAU (red hat). 1st row season ticket holder for the Colorado Rockies and one hell of a baseball snagger.

He got the correct answer of Ron Hansen.

Ron Hansen was the 8th player to get an unassisted triple play. He was also the first of the bigger shortshops.

Ron never made it to a World Series in fifteen seasons. Thanks for playing. Wonder who I could pick next…DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Green Floppy Hat.JPG

Ron Hansen

It’s Dan, since my sign-in name doesn’t come up.

He turned the 8th unassisted triple play, he was also the first guy, along with Tim Cullen to get traded for each other twice in the same season.

He never got to play in a World Series.

Dan your right. The correct answer is Ronnie Hanson. He played short stop. You were also correct when you said he was the 8th player to get an unassisted triple play. At 6,3 200 lbs Hanson was sort of the first of the big guy shortshops. Awesome job Dan..Did you know from the first entry, or did the hints help?, just curious…Don
