OK, so I guessed on some, but I still got 37 right out of 50. That's what being a baseball geek will do for you.

This is also confirmation of why I'm 39, never married and have no girlfriend!

I answered 26 correctly. I completely botched the no-hitter question however. Why I picked Steve Carlton over Nolan Ryan is beyond me.

That's a pretty good test. Covers the whole history of baseball with a couple of easy ones thrown in with a lot of more difficult questions.

I think that's pretty good. Some of those were pretty easy, but some of those I had no clue on.

I got 40 of 50 correct.

But I feel nothing but great shame for missing the question about which catcher caught the most no-hitters. I had no idea it was our Sox' very own Ray Schalk.

41.

I thought I had at least 45. I missed 5 of the last 7. In one case, I changed my mind after originally marking the right answer (not a guess, really --, I had it narrowed down to those two choices). I don't think any of my guesses were right, and a couple of things I was sure of turned out to have been supersceded since I was a kid.

40 as well for me. The most starting Opening Day assignments vexed me as did the total number of perfect games. There were some toughies, but I've gotta say if you grew up reading a lot about the game, a lot of this was pretty pedestrian.

Came away with a 38. I got most of the old questions right (I guess reading all the old baseball books as a kid helped out) and missed the more recent ones.

Did not know about the NY Mercury nor Ray Schalk. Took Bert Blyleven (sp?) over Tom Seaver and missed some easy ones.

But overall a good test.

I see where Kevin Mench (sp?) of the Rangers did the best of the players asked. IIRC he got a 40. My hats off to him.

But if you grew up reading about the game, you might be thinking that Robin Roberts still holds the record for opening-day starts or lost count of how many World Series the Yankees had won since they were stuck on 22 for all those years.
