Grandpa Roy Column

Hey guys, Drew back here after a long 1st 1/2 day of school. Grandpa Roy insisted I do another question and hopefully you could get this one. Here it is:

I am one of 3 men in the history of Major League Baseball to proudly wear the uniform of the Giants, Dodgers, Mets and Yankees. I also hit an inside the park homerun in the World Series. Who am I? And who are the other 2?

1: Casey Stengel, guessed correctly by Captain Canuck
2: Daryl Strawberry, guessed correctly by night owl
4: Ricky Ledee, guessed correctly by night owl, 2 points because he wasn't part of it.

*UPDATE* night owl guessed Ricky Ledee, who also is included in this group, but wasn't my 3rd person. There are actually 4 PLAYERS on this list, a total of 3 points will be added to night owl. Thanks dude!

So, follow the rules please, don't answer more than one at a time unless we are pretty far into the question and we seriously need help, and no cheating on the Baseball Reference or Almanac, and everything else. Remember, every question you get right earns you a point on the contest leaderboard, on the sidebar, and whoever has the most points by the end of the year will win a nice prize courtesy of me. Good luck and follow the rules!

*ALSO* Before I forget, please vote on the poll on the sidebar, we have a tiebreaker and need to break up the 3 way tie! Come on guys!


  1. I don't know who the specific guy is, but I know two of the guys who played for all 4 teams are Darryl Strawberry and Ricky Ledee (I actually know 3, but I can't come up with the name of the third right now!)

  2. without baseball reference I'm clueless. I know Jeff Kent played for all but the Yankees, but an actual guy from all four of those teams? No idea haha. damn that's hard


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
