The first two, like you said, were easy. The second two I had no idea. Obviously there are a lot of players I was able to rule out because I remember their first at-bats. Others I couldn't.

I just went and looked the answers up. One was my 3rd guess. The other, well, unless you've heard this before, you cheated if you get it right. :smile:

I think there are about 125 MLB players to have homered in their first at bat, all time.

Chuck Tanner is one of them.

I thought I m heard that Tanner homered his 1st two at bats---or was that somebody else ???

I like this fact: There is a member of the Hall of Fame who homered in his first
at-bat, and then never hit another one for the rest of his career, which was
21 seasons. He is also the last WW II veteran to play in the majors. Anyone?
