Previous Trivia Question:
Who is the only person to be inducted to both the Baseball and Pro Football Hall of Fame?
The answer, as correctly guessed, is Cal Hubbard. Hubbard played in the NFL (mainly for the Green Bay Packers) between 1927 and 1936. He is credited with being one of the inventors of the linebacker position.
While playing in the NFL, he began umpiring in minor league ball during the football offseason. He started in 1928 and was called up to the majors in 1936. He umpired until 1951 when a pellet from a shotgun during a hunting accident ended his umpiring career. He was made an assistant umpire supervisor and, in 1954, was made a supervisor, a position he held for fifteen years.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the inaugural class in 1963 and the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976 by the Veterans Committee. As if that wasn't enough, he was also inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1962.
This Week's Question:
If you lined up all the Hall of Famers in order of birth, who would be first and who would be last.
Bonus: While I certainly don't expect anyone to know who the median inductee was, feel free to take a guess as to what the median year of birth is for Hall of Fame inductees...
