Slugger Hack Wilson set a record for most RBIs in a season in 1930 which stood until 1999, when it was broken by what man?

 

How many RBIs did Hack Wilson get in 1930 and how many RBIs did the other man get in 1999?

 

3 points possible today.

I think your calendar is broke.  Wilson has the record, it's 191. 

I think Manny got above 160 in 99, but nowhere close to Hack.  If I'm wrong, shoot me.  If not, I get Joe's hamburgers for the day.

IIRC, Hack Wilson initially had 190 rbi's.  Then, someone found another one.  So he had 191.

 

Sheepishly, I am not sure who broke the record.  Honestly, I didn't even know it was broken.  If you put a gun to my head and make me guess I would say Bonds wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiith ........... 195.

 

BTW, rbi's are the devil and and meaningless so the question is invalid.  How about a real question like: Who holds the record for LD%?  What was that man's ISOd in 1999?

 

Haha.  I'm just bein' stupid.  Don't mind me.

This must be a trick question.  Did Jerome Holtzman break the record? I think he got credit for bumping up Wilson's total to 191.

I'll guess that the Calender claims Sosa broke the record.

How about: Hack Wilson's record of 190 rbi's in 1930 was broken by Hack WIlson with 191 in 1999. Is that cheating?

You get 2 points.  Hack Wilson had 190 and then had 191.

 

 

This must be a trick question.  Did Jerome Holtzman break the record? I think he got credit for bumping up Wilson's total to 191.

 

Spriggs gets the other point!  This is all somewhat accurate.  Cooperstown historian Cliff Kachline found the RBI and Holtzman verified.

 

PS Hans, Did you get snow?

 

Yes, it was snowing quite a bit earlier.

 

 

I'll guess that the Calender claims Sosa broke the record.

 

Anti-Spriggs with the save!

That is what the calendar actually says:

 

Slugger Hack Wilson of the Cubs set a record of 190 RBIs in 1930 which stood until 1999, when it was broken by Hack Wilson.  A long-lost extra RBI had been found by Cooperstown researcher Cliff Kachline, and later verified by MLB historian Jerome Holtzman.  Wilson is now credited with a record 191 RBIs that year.

I think Spriggs just likes to make sure everyone else has seen what others have said. :P

Aw, I'll call bullshit.  The record wasn't "broken".  It was just re-certified, or re-set.

 

Fucking calendar.  This shit didn't happen when Phil was here.
