The Babe Bruce Game

I always liked the Kevin Bacon game, or at least, the thought of the Kevin Bacon game.  I'm not a movie person, so I am very bad at it, like Corey Patterson is to hitting.  I haven't seen half the movies I should have, and those I have seen, I forget the names of the actors.

But I do know baseball.  I was thinking as I watched a yellow finch hop up and down a screen eating bugs off it, how many players would it take to connect Bruce to the Babe himself.  No, I don't know why the thought occurred to me as I watched living things being consumed with a sort of violence akin to that of a gaelic football match, but that's the human brain.  We use ten percent of it (some of us far less, I think), and we know next to nothing about it.

The links have to have played on the same team.

So, here goes mine.  See if you can do it in fewer links.  (Have we done this before?)

 

Jay Bruce played with

Ken Griffey, Jr. in 2008 who was teammates with

Ken Griffey, Sr. in 1990 who won a ring with

Tony Perez in 1975 who played with

Joe Nuxhall in 1963 who pitched to

Ray Mueller in 1944 who was teammates with

Babe Ruth on the 1935 Boston Braves

 

That's six links. Hey, six degrees of separation!
