Did Fergie hit 6 one year? I have two numbers in my head. If it's not six, I think I know how many.

I think you're right about Fergie.. It seems like for a long time Gibson and Drysdale had the NL record with 7(????).

The calendar doesn't really specifiy, but from the answer it appears they were looking for career home runs:

"Carlos Zambrano - 21 home runs through 2010.

Okay, but I do concede, Fergie only had 6 career so I whiffed badly anyway.

Nevermind, I was looking in his Triples column. Fergie only had 6 career triples. (One of which I saw in person!) He did hit 6 in '71 like I thought.

I assumed the calendar was looking for career homers and that Cubbie Blues was right (Big Z). I was just commenting to Stinky Pete that I thought he had the right number on Fergie (6) for a season.

I just looked up the record for most career home runs hit by a pitcher. Wes Ferrell has the record at 37 (36 in the AL and 1 in the NL). The record for the NL is 35. Since we now know when our gracious host, Fishin' Phil was born - a hint is that Phil could possibly have seen this Hall-of-Famer pitch on TV, but it is EXTREMELY doubtful that he could have any memory of such. Any guesses?
