Trivia: Who played for all 4 LCS teams?

Only 2 players in MLB history were with Astros, Yankees, Dodgers and Cubs

Trivia: Who played for all 4 LCS teams?

 It's time for some trivia. As the Yankees, Astros, Cubs and Dodgers battle for spots in the World Series, here's a tough one:

 Which players in Major League history have played for all four franchises?

Postseason game schedule

There are only two.

Can you guess who?

OK, we did say it was going to be tough. So here are five hints. (And if you're the impatient type, you can just skip to the bottom, but what fun is that?)

1. One of the two played more games for the Astros than any other club. The other played fewer games for the Astros than any other club.

2. One of these players also donned a Mets uniform, making him one of three players to play for all four New York franchises past and present -- the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Dodgers -- along with Darryl Strawberry and Ricky Ledee.

3. One of the two was a six-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove Award winner, but he never won a World Series. The other didn't garner as much individual recognition, but he was part of a World Series-winning club.

4. Both players wore the No. 7 at some point during their careers (although one of the two wore primarily No. 10). They even both wore No. 7 during the 2000 season.

5. They were teammates on the 1996 Indians.

Have you figured it out yet?

Take another moment or two (or 10) to ponder this one before you look below.

We'll even give you a little white space here so you aren't tempted to peek ....






Whithout further ado, here they are: The only two players to play for the Astros, Yankees, Dodgers and the Cubs were Kenny Lofton and Jose Vizcaino.

Lofton, in addition to his 10 years in Cleveland, began his career with the Astros in 1991, and he played for the Cubs in 2003, the Yankees in '04 and the Dodgers in '06.

Vizcaino was a Dodger to start his career from 1989-90, and again from 1998-2000; he was a Cub from 1991-93, a Yankee for the second half of the 2000 season (and was a member of the Subway Series World Series-winning team) and an Astro for five seasons from '01-05.

Did you guess them?

The Astros and Yankees square off in the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World starting tonight in Houston at 8 ET on FS1. The National League Championship Series presented by Camping World between the Dodgers and Cubs opens Saturday in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET on TBS.
