Quiz

This was linked to from the ESPN MLB schedule page.

I got 36 out of 40. I bet there are some posters on this board who would get all of them.

40/40. Had I missed any of them, I'd have turned in my baseball card and force-followed the WBNA

I missed Cy Young and Honus Wagner and a couple of others from the way way back.

For what it's worth the quiz told me that I did really well, so I probably did better than most but I would have bet you would be have one of the people who would've gotten them all.

There's at least a couple of others that I think would get them all too.

40/40 but admittedly I guessed on both Shoeless Joe and Honus Wagner

I missed on Shoeless Joe myself. I pictured D.B. Sweeney who played him in the movie Eight Men Out. And he didn't look Italian enough, Ray Liotta - So I was confused..
