My friends and I play this road-trip game that we simply call , "The Baseball Game." It's a name game. You go around in circles and name Major League Baseball players from any era as long as they played at least one game in the majors. I start with someone like Will Clark. Next guy to go has to use the First letter from the last name to start the first name of his player with. For example, if I saw Will Clark he might say Charles Johnson. The next guy can go one with the same formula and say Jason Isringhausen or he can do a double letter (JJ) to send it back the other way (i.e.: Jose Jiminez). Each player gets three strikes before they are out. You get a strike for repeating someone already said or not coming up with anything in a decent amount of time. Now you have a fun game to play on road trips.
The real reason I am posting is because this game always comes down to a few letters. X is a bitch, and Z is terribly hard. One time I said Zolio Versalles and no one believed me! I got a strike because my awesome answer was too obscure. The only reason I know him is because my dad's glove in college was the Zolio Versalles model by MacGregor. It was made out of kangaroo leather, and it was heavier than any glove I have ever held. It was awesome!
So I was mad that no one knew him when in fact everyone should know him. He has to be the WORST selection for MVP in the history of the award. I mean, come ON! Look at these numbers! http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/v/versazo01.shtml It's almost as if every hitter in the AL in 1965 fought in Vietnam for a season.
