The standings thus far:

HBF - 10
Lobo316 - 7
Dogfacedgremlin - 7

The monthly winner, announced the first of each month, will receive one classic baseball video selection from my library of games. 

The rules.  There are 10 clues regarding a ballplayer from the past, and a photo of said player that is blacked out.  With the revelation of each clue after the first a section is revealed.  Players may ask questions to help them toward their goal of guessing the player in under 10 clues.  The answer to those questions will be given at the judge's (me) discretion - you'll catch on as to what that means soon enough.  The number of clues given before a correct guess corresponds to the amount of points awarded on a 10=1, 9=2, etc. scale.

There is only one winner per round and only one player receives points each round.

And now...

TODAY'S GAME!  I will go slower to allow our evening folks a chance.

The first clue...and the mystery photo:

1.    1. After spending two years in the bigs, I played a year in Japan.

Actually, I have a typo/brain fart.  The player played 3 years in the majors before the Japan year.

9 points to DFG and he's back in the lead!

1.    After spending three years in the bigs, I played a year in Japan.
2.    I only had one at bat in the bigs for the team that drafted me.
3.    I was a California League All-Star in 1993.
4.    My only career HR in the majors was a grand slam off an accomplished closer.
5.    My first name is 2 ½ times longer than my last.
6.    I was at one time expected to be the successor to a Hall of Famer. 
7.    After I hit that big home run, I declined an interview on my team’s postgame show because I didn’t speak English
8.    I’m the only guy with my first name or my last name to ever play in MLB.
9.    I played my last MLB game at just 23.
10. I am named after the famed Greek mathematician.
