Grandpa Roy Column

Hey guys, Drew back here. First off, I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day, and a thank you to everyone who has served our country. I'm so proud to live in America, and I'm glad that so many people have the guts to go out there and support our country in the military. God Bless America!

Anyway, Grandpa Roy and I talked on the phone yesterday about many possible future questions to be used for the Column, so we should have some good stuff for you guys over the next couple weeks. Here is today's question for you:

Which Major League player hit the most home runs in their career without appearing in the World Series? How many home runs did he hit?

Answer: Ken Griffey Jr. , 630 Home Runs

Guessed by: The Diamond King

Alright, with this question, just leave the comment with your answer. Please use your very brilliant minds rather than online references, which kill the purpose of this game. Have fun everyone! And Good Luck!

See Ya!


  1. I've been wondering where Grandpa Roy went.

    Here's my thought process... No WS? Cubs.

    Who are the HR hitters for the Cubs? Sosa and Banks. I know that Sosa hit more, but I don't know how many.

    I'll take Sammy Sosa hitting 605.

    Now I'll have to look it up.

  2. I'd guess Griffey Jr. I can't remember if he was ever in a series.

    Ken Griffey Jr. - 630 HR?
    Guessed by: The Diamond King

  3. I don't remember my Braves history very well, and the other two guesses before me are pretty good educated guesses, but I'm going to guess (most likely incorrectly):

    Hank Aaron, 755
    Ryan G

    And it's off to find out that the Braves were in the series at some point and I'm wrong.

  4. Hey, good guesses guys! The correct answer was guessed by the Diamond King, Ken Griffey Jr.'s 630 homers never visited the Fall Classic! Thanks everyone and good job!

  5. Just saw this. Even more amazing is Ernie Banks who hit over 500 Home Runs and never made it to post season play.


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