BASEBALL: 7/30 Trivia Time

48 players have appeared in 2,500 or more career games; only six of those have a career OPS+ below 100 (i.e., on base plus slugging lower than a park-adjusted league average). Can you name them? Hint: each of the six are either in the Hall of Fame, played as recently as 1990, or both.

Answers here.

Buckner is listed as #6, Gaetti #5, Visquel #3-they are not in the HOF-did I miss something?

AHH! I re read your Q- HOF OR played as laste as 1990 OR both- I misread it
