    No. 1 was Billy Kilmer. That was driving me nuts. I was picturing the guy, but I couldn't remember his name.

    Is golf the sport in No. 5?

    Number 2 is not Pedro Ramos, he was out of the league by 1971, when the last edition of the Washington Senators ceased to exist. (He might have thrown the last pitch of the original Washington Senators in 1960, I should have been exact.)

    Golf is not the sport in question No. 5. Nor is football. But the event is still held every year.

    No. 5 is probably a horse race. Bill Parcells was probably there between coaching stints. ;D

    No. 5 is the Hambletonian.
