I bet that's close to Willie Randolph's career but he didn't hit very many HRs. Maybe he saved them all for extras when he wanted to go home.

My favorite player in that era was Johnny Ray and I remember him winning some games with extra inning homers.

I woulda guessed Eddie Murray, but it looks like he played until '97.

Top 5 players with most sacks on Tom Brady*:

T1. 12.5
T1. 12.5
3. 12
4. 11.5
5. 10.5

*These are actually the numbers against the Pats since the beginning of his career so some of them could conceivably have been on Cassel.

There's a Bill, a Jet, and a guy who played a few years with the Phins but most of his career with a non-AFC East team left.

Name the last active MLB position player (non-pitcher) to have started his career in each of these decades:

1950s
1960s
1970s
1980s
1990s

Notes:
- Not counting Minnie Minoso's comeback gimmicks.
- The 1990s guy is still on a roster and will be the final one assuming he plays next season.

Franco is incorrect (started in 1982).
Beltran is officially retired and so not the last from the 90's.
Niekro was a pitcher - this is position players specifically.
