Daily Double since I didn't get the weekends up:

 

Weekend:

Which Cub (who also won RoY) owns the team record for most XBH (60) by a rookie?

 

Todays:

 

Name the three Cubs players to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in one game.

I was just talking about homers from both sides of the plate by Cubs with one of my (6) brothers!  So I think I got this part.  I know Ellis Burton hit homers from both sides twice in 1963 or 1964.  Pretty sure Bellhorn also did it twice.  The other guy is Augie Galan around 1935 or so. 

 

Have to guess Billy on the extra base hit thing.  If that's wrong, I know who it is for sure!

Pretty sure Tony Campana had at least 60 extra base hits in his rookie year, but he got screwed out of the ROY.

I don't know the dates but daaayyyng.

 

Wrong-o on the XBH.

Tony got screwed so hard, the calendar folks don't even list his 900 HR season.

Yeah, I figured they'd screw Campana, so that's why I went with Billy. Since that's wrong, it has to be Soto.

Poor Campana, just always getting screwed out of everything. 

Soto is correct, 2008.

ps:  I was in the Ellis Burton fan club at one time!  The fan club met at Wrigley for a game (in 1964).  There was probably 20 people.  He talked to us for about 5 minutes before the game and signed our programs and a baseball card I had.  What a cool day that was - and an extremely nice and gracious guy!  Will never forget it. Check out the card from that day below!

I always figured being in your 50's was a bit old to be in a "fan club", but to each their own.

I was in the Ellis Burks fan club for a while in '89 when I managed to trade his '88 Topps rookie card + an '86 Fleer Don Mattingly to a buddy for a 1989 Bowman Ken Griffey Jr.

 

I won that trade.

Yes, you won that one!
