What's that auction house offering for Barry Bonds' 756th career home run ball? An Austin Powers-like "one meeeellion dollars?" Big whoop.
I'm prepared to match that dollar figure, arrange for Baseball Tonight's Karl Ravech to narrate your company softball league video, and commission an Outside The Lines report on Orel Hershiser's hair style if you record a perfect score on the following quiz.* All you have to do is match the then-high school or college player with the actual free agent reports filed years ago by scouts for a major league team.
The players: Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey Jr., Derek Jeter, Randy Johnson, Mark McGwire, Albert Pujols, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Frank Thomas.
No. 2 pencils sharpened and ready? Please begin.
* = Can't cash check until Greg Anderson speaks. Must drive to Bristol, Conn., to speak personally with Ravech and OTL host Bob Ley.
