Very, very tough quiz! Good job. I made it to level LCS, and found 2 small errors along the way. First (on the AAA question) JF hit a walk-off SINGLE (it followed a Miguel Cairo double). http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA200407010.shtml Second, the 12-run deficit game goes in the books as occurring on August 5th, although the game did end after midnight on the 6th. http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CLE/CLE200108050.shtml

@burtdoggy: very technically you are right. however, since i remember the game clearly, it was actually a ground rule double, but poor john didnt go to second, and his slg% suffered. so i will change it to be ambiguous and not say single or double. and yes, also you are right about the comeback. I thought it was time all the baseball experts got an actually challenging quiz! and congrats, you are very very good to have made it to the lcs question
Feb 21st, 2011 at 23:03 GMT
Thank you for this quiz. As you said, as a baseball expert it's nice to have a legitimately challenging quiz once in awhile.
Mar 19th, 2011 at 05:22 GMT
wow im lucky i am a phillies fan, otherwise i wouldnt have made it passed rounds 3 or 4

You are missing Jeremy Hermida from the grand slam in first at bat question. Bill Duggleby also did it, but that was in 1898.
Mar 19th, 2011 at 07:16 GMT
It says first pitch not first at bat.
Mar 19th, 2011 at 13:28 GMT
Hate the format of one at a time, especially when you have questions with obscure answers that you couldn't possibly reason out if you don't know it.

sorry but thats what makes it a hard quiz, to some extent
Apr 14th, 2011 at 17:34 GMT
Great quiz! I love that there is some challenge to it. I got to the bench player level and was mad that I knew two other questions after that one.
Apr 26th, 2011 at 14:54 GMT
Nava doesn't work when I type it in
Aug 15th, 2011 at 08:01 GMT
Wow you were not kidding about it being hard. Just one small suggestion, I think the Joe Carter question should come before the triple play one, that was pretty memorable.
Aug 16th, 2011 at 01:55 GMT
Zero need for the quiz to end, just trying to get your plays up, which unfortunately, worked. Not a good quiz
Aug 16th, 2011 at 03:18 GMT
I got to the grand slam question and typed Kouzmanoff and Nava every way I knew how and it did not work.
Aug 16th, 2011 at 03:56 GMT
For the Bonds question, you should indicate that you're asking for his career home run total. First thing I thought of was his 2001 season.
Aug 17th, 2011 at 02:06 GMT
Im lucky Im a Mets fan or I wouldn't have gotten past 3 (happened against the Mets)
Aug 20th, 2011 at 19:05 GMT
not gonna lie, i looked up at least a quarter of them ( i made it too aaa ball) but john flaherty molina and the first 3 were ones that i got without looking...(my uncle is a mets fan haha) im a yankees fan so those were easy

Quiz is mis-titled. Should be Really Freaking Hard MLB Trivia. Knew 5, guessed for 2 and shamefully looked up the rest. Sorry, sporcle purists, but I did learn an awful lot of obscure trivia.

Got to the reggie jackson question and am currently reading a book that describes that night... made it a lot easier than it should have been. Also, read the book on the pawtucket rochester game, so that was helpful as well.

"Can you name the hard mlb trivia" saw this and knew it was gonna be a bad quiz
