Sporcle Saturday: 500 RBI

Last Friday’s 7-3 win over the Tigers saw Jose Abreu become the 21st member of the White Sox organization to record 500 RBI with the team. While he needs about 200 more to reach top-10 status, it’s easily within the realm of possibility he could be top-15 by season’s end.

Your task for today? In addition to Abreu, name the other 20 members of the Chicago White Sox 500-RBI club. How many can you get? Good luck!

Quiz Parameters

  • I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts.
  • For hints, I’ve provided the player’s tenure with the Sox, and the number of RBI they recorded with just the White Sox organization.

Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:

  • As of this writing (prior to Friday’s games), there are 1,124 players in MLB history to reach the 500 RBI plateau.
  • With 507 RBI, Jose Abreu currently sits in the 1,101 position.
  • Aaron Rowand is exactly 1000th on this list, with 536 career RBI.
  • Matt Carpenter is likely the next member of the 500-RBI club, sitting at 490.

Had no clue on 3 of the guys from the 20s.




Me too. Not too good on the immediate post-Black Sox era. 


20/21. I was rolling til I hit those three from the 20s. Came up with two of them.


Same here except I did not come up with any of those three from the 1920s.


21/21. For the early guys, I guessed the names of guys I knew stuck around for a few years. Was a little surprised that

16/21. Missed most of the 20s guys, but should have remembered one name that would’ve netted me two more for my tally.


19/21. Also missed 2 guys from the 20s.
