QUIZ GUIDE: (1) Quiz covers 1933 (the year of the first MLB All-Star Game) to the present. (2) First half is defined as one-half of the number of scheduled games (ex. 77/154 G, 81/162 G), NOT the number of games played before the All-Star Break. (2a) For strike seasons: 1981 - 54 G, 1994 - 81 G, 1995 - 72 G. (3) Batting average, OBP, slugging, and OPS require 3.1 PA/G. Players short of the minimum appear if they lead their team after adding the number of hitless PA needed to qualify.
