Good Baseball Trivia

Question: Who is the one player who was on the field when Pete Rose Broke Ty Cobb's all-time hits record AND when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's all-time HR record?

This is a great bit of trivia given the importance that MLB fans have traditionally placed on those two records. It is quite amazing that one player, a notable baseball name in his own right, was on the field on both occasions given that Rose set the hits mark in 1985 and Aaron became the HR King in 1974.

To be sure you didn't accidentally see the answer below before you were ready, I wrote it backwards and inserted a "b" between each letter of the player's name.

    Steve Garvey would be the answer.

  2. Congratulations to imaginary reader Pete Dore who obviously excels at reading backwards between b's...but something tells me he knew this answer anyway.
