    A trivia question

    I was listening to my favorite radio show yesterday. The show goes from politics, sports, movies etc but the host is a huge baseball fan and asked a question he was sure no one would get.
    2 players in baseball history have 50 career home runs and 10 wins. Babe Ruth is obviously one but who is the other? It took me about 5 minutes of thinking but I got it






























    The Great Rick Ankiel. I figured a lot of people on here would know it but just throwing it out there
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    A trivia question

    Good one. I got it but actually had to check to see if he hit 50. I was surprised he actually made that easier than the 10 wins. Would have swore he had more career Wins. Unbelievable story. The yips are real

    Yeah, I got it too but was just like you when I checked his career stats. 11 wins in one season, 13 total for the career! I would have guessed a lot more wins.

    Had to check MadBum's stats to see if he'd have a shot at it, but I don't think he'll play long enough. Shohei Ohtani probably gets there in Japan this season if he has a healthy 2017.
