Got my new edition of Baseball America the other day and I thought I’d share the trivia question with you. Please don’t cheat and google search. Just answer it with a guess.

Q: Name the five active players who have hit at least 25 leadoff homeruns.

Answer will come as they’re guessed in the comment section.

  • sherm

    I’ll take a shot at this —

    Soriano, Johnny Damon, Barry Bonds (who hasn’t officially retired), Furcal, and Brian Roberts.

    I know several must be wrong — but thought I’d try.

  • Soriano – Correct
    Damon – Correct
    Barry Bonds – Wrong
    Rafael Furcal – Correct
    Brian Roberts – Wrong

    Two more to go

  • Grady Sizemore and Jose Reyes

  • sherm

    Granderson? Ichiro? Kenny Lofton? Is he still active?

  • Kyle

    I say Granderson, Jeter (he used to leadoff, right?), Posednik?

  • Ichiro – Correct

    One more to go

  • Terrelle Pryor 2

    Is Chone Figgens the last one?

  • Joe

    Figgins – Wrong

  • Figgins barely has 25 total home runs.

    I am going to go with Rollins for the 5th and final slot.

  • Joe

    Jimmy Rollins – Correct
