I'll go with Griffey. I know he came up to the Reds very young but I 'm not sure he was that young. Couldn't be Rose,Perez or Bench. I didn't really see any opposing players that fit that.

Yep!!

Good Job!!

Thanks! I figured it wasn't a Red, or I likely would have automatically known the answer. So I started looking at opposing players. While looking at the 1963 Colt .45's, I recalled that Rusty Staub hit a few home runs in his 40's while serving as a pinch-hitter deluxe for the Mets in the early 80's. So I took a guess.
