Quiz not verified by Sporcle

(WARNING!!! This quiz may be challenging because some of the player names are relatively obscure.) ------ Home runs above average (HRAA) is a fun little stat I cooked up. For each season, a player's HRAA = HR - AB*LgHR/LgAB. When compared to the league average, home runs are "worth" less in high-HR eras, and more in low-HR eras. The career total for a player is found by adding up each season total. ------ Home runs BELOW average (HRBA) is simply the inverse of HRAA (e.g., -100 HRAA = 100 HRBA). Players with a lot of HRBA generally played in high-HR eras and had many at bats but little power. ------ Actual career HR and AB appear in parentheses. Data is from 1876-2015. Team listed for a player is the one on which he played the most games. An asterisk (*) indicates a HOFer. Press F11 if you can't see the whole quiz.
