I got 20/25 - got everyone who played 1990 or later. Whiffed on most of the players older than that.

Not a lot of home runs in White Sox history. Which is weird to me, because for most of my life the Sox have had a HR-first offense. I guess that's why 20 of these 25 guys are from my lifetime...

Whiffed on OF 2008-11 and DH 2011-14. Can't believe I did, but I drew a blank on both. 23/25.

It's hard to believe that for a long time, no one had much more than 200 homers. I guess that is a testament to either how awful the Sox offense was for a long time or how cavernous Old Comiskey was, maybe both.

I got all 25 with about five minutes left.

From 1975-87, the All-Time White Sox Home Run King topped the list with 154.

25/25 in order from top to bottom with 4:49 left and didn't look at positions in the right column until 2000-2008 entry.

You have to consider that in my early years I watched a guy capture the team record for HR's in a year when he hit 33. Prior to that no one had ever hit 30.

The Sox as a home run hitting team is purely due to the change in the game relying on home runs and moving into the new stadium. Prior to that winning Sox teams were all about pitching, defense, and fundamentals. There may have been one team known as "The Hitless Wonders" but in reality that can mostly describe them over the first 70 years or so of the franchise.

24/25... went through them in order from top to bottom. Missed only a certain 1980's OF that I should have known.

This one was fairly easy since only one of them was someone I never saw put on a uniform... though another one of them is a little bit of a stretch saying that.

21/25 I brain cramped on TCQ and burned a lot of time, thought I had to go in order and didn't realize I could skip down and go back to it. Otherwise I would've gotten 23 or 24 correct. But the honest score is 21. Not bad.

Funny... he's been my brain cramp on a couple of these tests to the point where I have made a decision that whenever they are about hitting I'll start with him and work my out from there.

After missing a particular 1980's slugger in this one I may add him to the list of players to start with regardless of hitting category.
