Awesome!

Just a quick point, you have Scott Elarton listed twice (in 2004 and in 2008).

Tribe bust Brad Snyder with his first MLB base hit, a bases-loaded single for the Cubbies.

What a list. I can't believe some of these guys are still playing!

I think you missed John McDonald with the Blue Jays.
