  • Semi-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.

    Week 1 Part 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)

    This week's quiz: Top of the Batting Order (2000s)
    Tyrus4189Cobb score- 68/120
    Average- 68.7/120 (six participants)
    Scores:
    ian2813- 2 points
    Gee Walker- 1 point

    It's not showing that that particular game was found.

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

          Apparently I played this game back in March of 2011 and scored 81 out of 120. Since it had been such a long time, I played it again and scored 80/120. I guess I'm getting slower in my old age.

            55 not too good
            1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)
