We've had as many players finish #1 in the voting as we've had votes - the number is closing in on 100. None of the rest of the #1's faced competition as intense as Cobb did.

Despite the competition, he still had the record for most points recorded until Aaron topped him in 1982. Not too shabby.

Cobb? Bah. He would only hit about .210 if he were playing today . . .

Oooh! So close! I'm sorry the line we were looking for was:

". . . Yes, but, he'd be 121 years old if he were playing today."

Thanks to all the contestants. You'll receive a home version of our game, "Finish That Baseball Anecdote," and a year's supply of Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco treat.

Rice-a-Roni may have been the San Francisco treat, but its road splits are not Hall-worthy.
