Trivia Answer

Who hit the most home runs at (the old) Yankee Stadium?

The answer is Mickey Mantle. The switch hitter had 266 home runs opposed to Babe Ruth's 259. I figured more people would pick Ruth, but I guess you people are cheating. Lou Gehrig isn't that far behind either, with 251 home runs. If Mantle was a lefty only and never got hurt, who knows how many more he could have hit.

Be sure to check out Jim's post on should #21 be retired. Interesting stuff, considering number 51, 2, 6, 42, and possibly 46 will also be retired from this era.
