thank god Chris got Gehrig before the game started tonight!! :D Maybe Lou Gehrig should always be the answer to number 9 -- that's twice in a row!! :D

Nice job guys...there's only one left now -- #10!! :)

I don't know why, but I would have never guessed Gehrig. I thought of Henderson, Ruth, Ted Williams, Cobb and Pete Rose, but none of them came to mind. I knew Lou had a fantastic lifetime average but I didn't realize he had so many 200 hit years and batting after Ruth I would not have guessed he walked as much. Great job Chris
