    Sporcle Quizzes

    Inspired by GiambiJuice, I made my own quizzes on Sporcle. Here are the links for anyone interested in playing them. Have fun!

    55 of 61 right on the first one.
    21 of 30 right on the second one, I'm weak on 19th and early 20th century pitchers.
    93 of 105 right on the third one.

    Thanks, these were fun.

    I thought that first one used to require that you get everyone in order on the list, but it doesn't now. Am I wrong? I like it this way though.

    Yes, I changed it after a few complaints.

    No, it's not hijacking. Anybody can use this thread for posting links to Sporcle quizzes, I say.

    I created a test quiz here which is unavailable to the general public. It's a quiz on locations of MLB teams based on their league and years of existence. If anyone would like to check it out and suggest how to improve it, I'd much appreciate it. I want to work out the kinks before I make a public version.

    Here's a HOF-related quiz I created: http://www.sporcle.com/games/DJC83/hofnearmiss. Let me know what you think.

    Good quiz. Gil Hodges should be in the HOF!

    I'm surprised Graig Nettles didn't make the list. I figured there would've been some more support for him. One of the best defensive 3rd baseman of all time and 390 homers and 1,314 RBI to go with it. Of course the rate stats aren't very good though.

    Nettles came closest to being elected by the BBWAA in 1994 in his first time on the ballot, when he received only 38 votes out of 456 ballots (8.33%). He was eliminated from the ballot in 1997 when he received less than 5% of the total votes. But as we all know, the opinions of the BBWAA do not always reflect how worthy a player is of election to the HOF.

    Urg. I only got 111 of 153. Great quiz, though.

    I was making one but I maxed out the number of quizzes I could make in a month. How annoying.

    It's just Sporcle's little condescending way of telling us to get a life
