Current Scoreboard:
Dogfacedgremlin - 10 pts.

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. BACK POCKET

WINNAR AND A TIE BALLGAME!

1. BACK POCKET (RAINES WAS RUMORED TO CARRY A VIAL OF COCAINE IN HIS BACK POCKET ON THE FIELD)

2. CALDERON (Raines was traded to the Chicago White Sox on December 20, 1990, along with Jeff Carter and a player to be named later (Mario Brito would eventually be agreed upon), in exchange for Iván Calderón and Barry Jones.)

3. SECOND EVER (RAINES AND HIS SON ARE THE SECOND FATHER-SON TO PLAY FOR THE SAME MLB TEAM)

4. COLLUSION (RAINES WAS ONE OF THE MAIN GUYS AFFECTED BY THE 1987 COLLUSION SCANDAL)

5. ALL-STAR WINNER (RAINES' HIT IN EXTRAS GAVE THE NL THE WIN IN THE 1987 ASG)

That was a REALLY good guess. 

Another game coming up shortly - now we've got a tie to break.  Guess this one was TOO easy.
