Rodak Remembers: Baseball Quiz #5

Here, from the banks of the O-hi-o, is a threefer fer ya. Of this trio of precursors to the Big Red Machine, one of them should be--in the words of the immortal Latka Gravas--"a piece of pie." So, in addition to naming him, what (jointly held) record of his was demolished by Mark McGwire?

Of the remaining two, one a had son who played in the majors four years longer than he did (1972-1989), but finished with a lifetime BA two points lower (.279 vs .281).

The third man set the bench mark for backstops before there was Johnny. Name all three.

And because 3 is the number of the day, don't miss the other two highly amusing new posts below this one.
