Those 3 have to be locks. Can't even take a guess on the other two.

3/3

Everyone who puts Ty Cobb is a racist.

Number 5 is tough. I don't think it's someone from the last 50 years but can't think. Going to ponder while I have a couple cheeseburgers and a couple barley sandwiches.


4/4
While double A was munching on cheeseburgers, Erick Von Erich came up with the 5th name, Eddie Collins, a forgotten HOF'er.

Collins had 3319 hits, batted .333 & stole 741 bases.
Most people wouldn't guess Molitor. I always thought he was a good player but never appreciated how good he was until I watched him one season, where at age 36, he led the league in hits, batted .332 finishing second in the batting title & hitting 22 homers with 111 RBI's. He also stole 22 bases.
At age 39, he again led the league in hits, batted .341 & had 113 Rbi's. 
I guess most fans don't think of Molitor as a base stealer but in his prime he stole 30 - 45 bases a season.
I knew Lou Brock's name would come up. He batted .293. One curious thing about Brock. He NEVER stole home. Babe Ruth stole home 10 times & Lou Gehrig stole home 15 times. Ricky stole home 4 times.

Wagner
Ichiro

Probably the only reason I got Molitor is because he was a favorite of mine during his career.  And after Von Erich mentioned Collins he seemed like an old timey guy that would have done it. Cobb and Wagner were locks and I'm pretty sure I was watching the game where Ichiro joined the club. The announcers must have said it 500 times.

Honestly, Eddie Collins is a guy I always get mixed up with Eddie Matthews. Different eras and different types of players, but it still happens.
