I posted this question in the general trivia section, but I don't think anybody responded. So come on baseball fans, lets start a trivia section.Looking up answers online is expressly frowned upon, but if you wanna be a little bitch, go ahead. All questions assume "modern era," i.e. no 19th century bullshit. So, who holds the record for batting average by a rookie?
Karl: She was a bit -- what's the word that you can use, cuz I don't wanna offend anyone?
Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

wow....started off with a hard one..unless I'm just blanking on it or something. It wasn't Ichiro...was it? I don't think it was him..but he hit like .350 or something...so maybe it was?? I'll say Ichiro...but I'm pretty sure I'm wrong.

I guess this is all unnecessary rambling because Hollywood personifies something I hate about most people. He can take valuable knowledge, stare it right in the fucking face and never let a single sentence absorb into his brain.

Pretty sure its George Watkins of STL fame.Now I post a question, right?Who holds the records for most games played, most at bats (lifetime), and most hits (lifetime)?Not really a hard one, but good enough.

He was never as good as his rookie year, I don't think.There's a thing in this coffee table book we have.

NONE OF YOU ARE CORRECTIt was Shoeless Joe, who posted a retarted .408 his rookie year.Okay since the dude who got Pete Rose right didn't ask a question (and since nobody actually got mine right) I'll post another. I think this is a bit easier. No cheating.Who holds the record for career total bases? Hint: it's not Pete Rose

I think I wanna challenge the Shoeless Joe Jackson answer. Could you please give a link or tell where you got this from, because was he technically a rookie that year..because he was in the MLB for three previous seasons..with 5, 5, and 20 games played those three years. Now, I'm not exactly sure of how a player qualifies as a "rookie," but would he have really been a rookie?? Not saying I really know the answer, but it just seems a bit odd. Here is where I got this info:http://www.baseball-...php?p=jacksjo01

It is Adam Dunn I think. Didn't he do it like, two or three years ago???Alright, Adam Dunn is correct, so my turn:Who has hit the most career Grand Slams?

20 games doesn't qualify as a rookie season. From thebaseballpage.com:"In 1911, as a rookie, he hit .408...."

Lou Gehrig am I correct?If I remember right Manny Ramirez is a close 2nd.

However, I was under the impression that if you played pieces of three seperate years..that you would no longer qualify. Doesn't really matter though, we'll just go with it.Lou Gehrig am I correct?If I remember right Manny Ramirez is a close 2nd.
Lou Gehrig is correct. Manny is 3 behind I think. 3 or 4.
