Enlighten me. What is Canal Zone? Not being sarcastic, I really dont know.

I understand that you're trying to separate them for the challenge, but Andruw Jones and all Curacao born players compete for the Dutch national team during the WBC. The Antilles and Aruba are still considered independent countries. Pretty cool quiz otherwise.

It was an area around the Panama Canal that only existed from 1903-1979. John McCain was also born there. It was technically a territory of the US, and not a country, so I'm deleting it from this quiz.

themarkpham- Thanks for the comment. I deleted the Curucao answer.

I made it so you have to answer them in order. PLMK if you like this better.

antilles and aruba are NOT considered independent countries, they are part of the netherlands. England and Scotland are NOT countries - they are both part of the United Kingdom. You also misspelled Jurrjens and Blyleven. and also, to nitpick, when you ask for the players' "nationalities" you should accept "australian" or "french" because those are nationalities. You should change the title to make it clear you want the home country, not their nationality, and/or accept nationalities proper.

"Vicente" is also misspelled. Accept Curacao for Jurrjens as an alternate at least, if you want to display Netherlands Antilles, that's fine. Edwin Jackson's answer isn't really correct on two levels. First, the place he was born was West Germany at the time of his birth, not Germany. Second, he was born on a US military base to US citizens; his nationality really isn't German.

@mfluornoy..."vicente" is not his name-->"vincente" is.
