DFG has the early lead with 4 points

This edition is only 5 clues - so you'll be given more time to guess but the points will go by twice as fast!

The rules.  There are 5 clues regarding a ballplayer from the past.  Players may ask questions to help them toward their goal of guessing the player in under 5 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.

There is only one winner per round and only one player receives points each round.  Winner at the end of the month receives a classic baseball game on video from the Big J Sports Library.

The first clue:

1. 22 for 1

No to the two guesses, and no comment to the question

Ding.

We have a winnar!  DFG ups his lead to 8 points. 

1. 22 for 1 (Upon his return to Oakland in 1989, Henderson wore the recently departed Luis Polonia's #22 for one game before arranging with Ron Hassey to get #24)

2. No-name debut (When Henderson debuted with the A's in 1979, he did so with just his #35 on the back of his jersey - the only player on the team without his name on his back)

3. Plunk (Rickey was twice traded for Eric Plunk)

4. Christmas (DOB 12/25/58)

5. Third person (Rickey is famed for referring to himself often in the third person)

Yeah.  Some people are real sticklers for that kinda thing.
