    No. 1 is Jerry Pate, who did it two, maybe three years apart. No clue on any of the others.

    Updated with a correct answer.

    William & Mary is the Tribe. There may be two other schools that share that nickname, but I can't think of them. If there are, you get credit, even though it's not the answer I am looking for.

    Pujols is the active under-30 HR leader (317, I believe). The other two are out there.
  9. I thought Pujols was 45.

    Does Pujols count since nobody really believes he is only 28?

    Seriously, Pujols has to be one of the three, but I don't think Utley has enough homers and Jones is 30 or 31.

    Edit: I see Pujols was already confirmed.

    4. Is Teixeira one of the three under 30? I know he is young enough and I remember seeing he is really close to 200 homers for his career.
