Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron for sure.
That's 2 of the 4.
Willie Mays—Giants and Mets—has to be one.
It is. 1 left.
See my edit!

I've got one more. Who is the only Yankee manager to never win a game at Yankee Stadium (not including managers prior to 1923)?

I'm partially cheating here: Bill Virdon. I had to look up who was the manager during the mid-70s renos that forced the Yankees to play at Shea.

I had a guy regale my cousin and I with those two questions in a bar several years ago. We managed to figure out the home run question - but we were both stumped on the Bill Virdon answer.

I might have legit gotten it as I recently re-read Dan Epstein's Big Hair and Plastic Grass, on 1970s baseball. It makes a superb case that that decade was baseball's fucked-up peak.

It's kinda cool that a person with only $50K in assets could amass $31M in debts. There's an argument there that he beat the system. (Except for the jail thing.)

“See this motherfucker across the street? He’s got a hot fucking daughter, dude,” Lenny told Memet as he drove up. He added that the father once confronted him about staring, but he came up with an excuse.

Looks good to me—9 beats 2, 3, and 4, and 4 beats all those 1's.

Roberto Clemente's last game was 46 years ago last night. He was voted into the HOF with 92.7% of the ballot the following Spring. At least 7.8% of the voters were assholes who hated baseball.

Great ballplayer, even greater human being. He was as complete a baseball player as you can imagine—he just did everything extraordinarily well.
