MLB Quizzes & Trivia

Welcome to Quiz #5 in our season-long MLB Trivia Challenge! Remember that only your first entry counts, and SPELLING MATTERS. We will have no sympathy if you miss questions because of misspellings or not following directions. (And if you have a problem with this, we've hired Lou Piniella to be in charge of Listener Relations, so good luck with that. ) Also: After each question it tells you how many words the answer should be. Make sure you use that as a guide when you submit your answer. READ THE DIRECTIONS FOR HOW TO ANSWER!
