Good job.  What about Dave Philley for A's and Phils, and Nap Lajoie, Bill Bernhard, Dave Fultz, and Chick Fraser, for that matter?  Jim Bottemly, Max Lanier, Joe Sugden, Jesse Burkett, Bobby Wallace, Dick Padden, Red Donahue, and Jack Powell for The Cards and Browns?  And Clark Griffith, Turk Lown, Frank Isbell, Sam Mertes, Dummy Hoy, and Nixey Callahan, for The Cubs and Sox? And Cy Young, Cleveland Spiders (NL), Cleveland Blues(later Indians) (AL), and Nig Cuppy, Bill Dineen, Ted Lewis, Jimmy Collins, Chick Stahl, and Freddy Parent,  for The (NL)Braves(Red Stockings?), and (AL)Red Sox (Pilgrims?), and NL Baltimore Orioles, and AL Baltimore Orioles: John McGraw, Bill Keister, Wilbert Robinson, Joe Kelley, Steve Brodie, Dan McGann, Jimmy Sheckard, Joe McGinnity, Jerry Nops, and Harry Howell?  And how about Frank Foreman, who played for The Baltimore Orioles of The major league American Association during The 1880s, and The NL Baltimore Orioles during The 1890s, and The AL Baltimore Orioles during The 1900s?  And Jimmy McAleer, who played for The Cleveland Spiders of The NL during the 1880s and 1890s, Cleveland's Players' League team in 1890, and The AL's Cleveland Blues during The 1900s (as player/manager)?

Robb, have to admit that I don't know 95% of those names. And, the 5% I knew like Clark Griffith and Nap Lajoie and vaguely Bottomley and Lanier were from the Ken Burns documentary series. I still couldn't have told you which team(s) they played for.  Of course, I knew Dave Philley and Turk Lown from the 50s -- just missed them.   

I think we've listed enough to move on to my 3rd Baseball Quiz (although, I'm sure there were many, many more players that crossed the road to play with a city's rival team).

Amazing Yelich was a bit underthe radar--when Jeter dumped salary--Stanton & guy sent  Cardinals were mentioned--never Yelich!

Joe--are u  eating  the same food as Robb?   You are  Robb Jr. Grin Grin Grin Grin

I collected and read the backs of 50s baseball cards for YEARS! You learned a lot of names and team associations. Why my lists were generally so weak on pre-1948 players. I'm sure the list of players is MANY times greater than the 2 names I came up with for STL and Philly. I knew more Chicago names because I followed the White Sox closely throughout the 50s, my favorite player in baseball being Nellie Fox.
