First things first: Merry Christmas to all who celebrate. For those of you who do not, I hope you are still able to have a relaxing day and that you are fortunate enough to have some time off around the holidays. Personally, I’m hoping Santa brought me Joe Posnanski’s The Baseball 100; time will tell.
At any rate, today’s Sporcle will celebrate Nellie Fox, who was born on this day in 1927 in St. Thomas, PA. Whenever I think of Fox, I think of all the singles he hit over his career: of his 2,663 hits, 2,161 of them were of the single base variety. For those of you playing along at home, that accounts for 81.1% of his career hits.
Today, I task with you naming other White Sox players with a bunch of singles in their career: to make the list, a player must have logged at least 300 singles during their time with the team. That’s 117 names: how many can you get? Good luck!
- I’ve allotted the full 20 minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the tenure of the player in question, their position, and the number of singles they logged. One important caveat: under tenure, I did not separate if a player left and returned to the team at a later date.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- Every position on the diamond is represented here, including pitcher.
- Shortstop accounted for three of the first six names on this list.
- Fox is 28th most all-time with his 2,161 singles.
