The old school professional baseball players played the game for the love of the game and they were some more happy campers for getting paid for that which they enjoyed so much.

Here is the first of your baseball quiz and it is a two part question: Let me set the background information leading to the question.

  • These two very famous Hall Of Fame baseball players enjoyed careers in the game recognized as being among the greats to ever have played the game.

  • By mere coincidence both of these gentlemen baseball greats independent and in their own right were super left hand hitting heroes. As an aside I always enjoy touting the kindred spirit among the left hand hitters since I too hit from the left side batters box.

  • Both put their love of their game above the value of money.

  • Both went to their respective team owners after having played a season of below what they considered worthy of their pay and requested a cut in their next years salary. Can you name these two players?

    (1960, Stan "The Man" Musial told the St Louis Cardinals to drop his salary $20,000 for his not fully earning his pay.)
