Great trivia question

The Reds released roving hitting instructor Jim Hickman as part of a series of moves made this week in their minor-league system.

Hickman was one of my favorite Chicago Cubs players growing up. He's also the answer to one of my favorite trivia questions.

Reds fans will always remember Pete Rose running over Ray Fosse to score the winning run in the 1970 All-Star Game at Riverfront Stadium. But, who delivered the hit which scored Rose?

You guessed it, it was Hickman.

You have my permission to stump your friends with that one.
