Here is your trivia question. Note that it has multiple parts, all of which must be answered correctly. Only one answer per person is allowed.
Freese and Carlos Beltran are off to fast starts with the long ball in 2012. They are the Cardinals co-leaders in the early going with three home runs each through six games, but they aren’t the best in team history.
Which Cardinals player had the best-ever start to a season in the home run category? In other words, who had most home runs in team history through the first six games of the season, how many did he hit AND in what year?
(Thanks to researcher Tom Orf for offering up this question.)
