In honor of NL Rookie of the Year favorite Ryan Braun, UmpBump presents the following trivia question:

Who holds the major league record for most errors in a season by a third baseman?

  1. Not 100% certain, but I\’m going with Butch Hobson and the bone chips in his throwing elbow.

  2. I’m gonna go with Dave Hollins, though I don’t think that’s right.

  3. Sarah Green says:

    This is a ridiculously hard question. I’d settle for an estimate of the number of errors the record-holder committed. Closest guess gets an UmpBump sticker?

  4. Nick Kapur says:

    Okay, how about something totally ludicrous… say, 76 errors in one season!

  5. Sarah Green says:

    Mmmmmm….not quite!

  6. Sarah Green says:

    Guess again!

  7. Charlie Hickman, 91 in 1900.

    (I love Baseball Almanac)

    Is that cheating? Nobody actually knew this, right?

  8. Technically, it is cheating, but I’m glad to be done w/ that question. Not even the Shwab could have gotten that.

  9. Sarah Green says:

    That is cheating, meech. I had decided to post the answer in a week’s time if no one got it, but since no one was really guessing, anyway, I guess it doesn’t matter!

    91 errors! And that was before the 162 game season!
