What pitcher was baseball's first 200-game winner?
Did you mean 300 game winner ?

Most records now are meant to be during the modern era, which is after 1900. There were some before that.

After 1900 I think maybe Johnson, Alexander, or Mathewson. Not sure really.

Well, since this wasn't modern era, I'll give the answer.

Al Spalding was the first pitcher to 200 wins, doing so in only 5 seasons, with win totals of 19, 38, 41, 52, and 54. Spalding had just 5 losses in the last of those seasons in 1875, a .915 winning percentage, the best of any season with 20+ decisions.

So, he played 1870-1875.

I'll check in later.

Who can name the only actors who were in all seasons of MASH. I believe there were 4.
Alan Alda, Jsmie Farr, Loretta Swit and G.W. Bailey (Ruzzo), would be my guess.I was going to say William Christopher, but he wasn't in the first couple of episodes, some other guy played Father Mulcahy in like 2 episodes.

I think we had this a long time ago and it was very debatable, if I remember correctly.
If you mean just America, then Amerigo Vespucci.
Well X, you're right about the Americas, as far as coining the name "The United States of America," it was Thomas Paine.

If you mean how many times did he defend his titles, not sure.
You got the answer right X, 6.

Robinson held the world welterweight title from 1946 to 1951, then was the middleweight champion five times between 1951 and 1960.

He actually won the titles 6 times, not just defended. As far a defending, I bet Larry Holmes would be at or near the top, he defended the heavyweight title 17 times.
