  • Weekly Sporcle Challenge

    Every semi-week I will post a baseball quiz from Sporcle. Post your score, and person with the highest gets 2 points. Second gets one point. Only post your score after the first time you take it. We're on the honor system here; I have no problem with a Ken Jennings winning every week, but don't ruin it by cheating.

    This week's quiz will start rather simple. Name the lifetime .300 hitters since 1947. I'm not participating in this, but I'll post my score nonetheless.

    Week 1: Lifetime .300 hitters since 1947
    Tyrus4189Cobb score- 42/55
    Winner- ian2813 55/55
    Runner up- Gee Walker 49/55
    Average- 45.5/55 (eight participants)

    44. Missed a couple that I should have gotten, but I had no chance at most of the ones I missed

      I got 44 also. I can't believe I missed Josh Hamilton and Roberto Alomar. I woulda had a tough time with the rest of em though.

        I got 49. I seem to have problems with Pittsburgh and Atlanta players.

          So far Gee Walker is in the lead with chicago and Brooklyn in second (and me unofficially in last).

            I took this quiz last month and got 55/55. Does that count, or do I have to take it again?

              I've been playing these things now for the last 5 hours. I did very well on the top 5 homerun hitters per season. I think I got 182 out of 200.

                No I believe you. You're an honest guy, ian.

                I'm thinking of making these once every three days instead of weekly. We'll see how many participants I get

                  A disappointing 42. I spent too much time trying to think of certain players and should have moved on to knock the easy ones off first. Finally did that with 30 seconds left, but ran out of time. There are a few I never would have gotten though.

                    I won't put the name but the player who played for the Reds and Tigers in the 90's and 00's was a tough one.

                      Another I would never have gotten (even with no clock) was the one who played from late 60s to early 80s with Atlanta, Chicago & California.

                        The least guessed on the quiz was the player who played 1962-1982, mostly with the Dodgers and a few years in Pittsburgh. Never would've gotten him.

                          43 out of 55.

                          Missed 14, 20, 22, 25, 31, 33, 35, 36, 39, 44, 50. (though I got one on a two for one that I wouldn't have).

                            I'm going to bump this in case anyone else wishes to participate. If not I'll move on
