Oh. I would have gone with Anson, myself. Soooooooo I have two guesses and I think I will go with Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown.

I'm sure Spriggs will be along with the correct answer shortly.

OMG! Stinky was wrong! Write down the date!

Mordecai Brown sounded woulda been my guess.

I like those type of trivia questions.

For anyone else who does too... I think I might asked this one before, but along the same lines (sort of):

Which player from the famous 1906 to 1908 Chicago Cubs teams earned the most Hall of Fame votes in the HOF's inaugural vote in 1936? Here are the main players ones to choose from:

Outfielders: Sheckard, Schulte (Wildfire), Slagle
Infielders: Tinker, Evers, Chance, Steinfeldt, Zimmerman (Heine),
Catchers: Kling, Moran
Pitchers: Brown, Pfiester, Lundgren, Overall, Reulbach

I think that is the second time I have overlooked Alexander on one of these questions.

Spriggs, I suppose since I guessed Brown earlier, I will take a Chance on this one.
Also, was Zimmerman really there that early?

Chance is not correct, Stinky. On Zimmerman, yes -- He started his career in 1907 with the Cubs. Wasn't a starter until a few years later. He isn't the right answer either though.

For some reason Schulte is sticking out in my mind.

Man, two wrong answers on one day... Oh well. I guess it's not the end of the world....

Then I will go back to Brown and my favorite joke. Mordecai Peter Centennial's sister was also nick named "Three Finger" although her hand was not mangled in a combine.

Uh Oh Stinky's wrong again!!!! I'm pretty sure it's the catcher Johnny Kling, he of a career 20 homeruns and .319 OBP(has to be one of the worst slash lines in the Hall). I was looking at the list a few months ago after a different Cubs fact, and I think he beat out Brown, Evers, and Chance by a few votes each.
