Bidge and Baggy become just the fourth tandem in Cooperstown to play for at  least 15 years together on the same club. If you want to take a guess at the others they played for Pirates, Giant (NY) and Yanks.

I'm guessing Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle are the Yankee combo.

I would have said Mays and McCovey but I think McCovey was just a SF giant and not an NY giant.

That was not the tandem but one of the above is part of the answer.

It's got to be Clemente and Mazeroski.

I saw the answers earlier so I won't spoil it, but I love this piece of trivia, and Bagwell and Biggio's place in it.

The Giants were Mel Ott and Carl Hubbell.
