Baseball Trivia Question #1

Who are the 9 players that have won back to back MVP awards? Hint: there is a player at every position and there are actually 2 players that have won back to back MVP awards twice so there are actually 11 back to back MVP winners. Good luck!

TRIVIA QUESTION #1 ANSWER: 

BUT FIRST, My apologies for an incorrect hint. The hint should have stated, “there are two positions that have more than one player with back to back MVP wins.”

  1. Pitcher – Hal Newhouser – Detroit Tigers – MVP 1944 & 1945;
  2. Catcher – Yogi Berra – New York Yankees – 1955 & 1956;
  3. First base – Jimmie Foxx – Philadelphia A’s – 1932 & 1933 and Frank Thomas – Chicago White Sox – 1993 & 1994 and Albert Pujols – St. Louis Cardinals 2008 & 2009
  4. Second base – Joe Morgan – Cincinnati Reds – 1975 & 1976;
  5. Third base – Mike Schmidt – Philadelphia Phillies – 1980 & 1981;
  6. Shortstop – Ernie Banks – Chicago Cubs – 1958 & 1959;
  7. Left field  – Barry Bonds – Pittsburgh Pirates & San Francisco Giants – 1992 & 1993, respectively and San Francisco Giants 2001 to 2001;
  8. Center field – Mickey Mantle – New York Yankees – 1956 & 1957 and Dale Murphy – Atlanta Braves – 1982 – 1983;
  9. Right field – Roger Maris – New York Yankees – 1960 & 1961.

O Captain! My Captain!

DWO Captain! my Captain! Our fearful trip has just begun!

The ship must weather every storm, with you our only gun.

The port is nowhere near, the bells I cannot hear, for fans it won’t be fun.

While they follow you with steady eyes, the ship will list from side to side.

Where on the deck my Captain lies,

From father’s constant lies
