Open baseball season with some baseball questions!

With the Phillies' home opener on March 31, I will be opening baseball season with 6 rounds of baseball questions that night at Ray's Happy Birthday Bar, a decidedly diamond-mad institution. I will also have baseball-related give aways and such like.

The Subject round (only) for the other 3 quizzes that week will also be Baseball, and all different rounds so that you may play multiple games if you like. Huzzah, it is so declared!

You are the man, Chris. Good idea to celebrate baseball season with baseball questions! (I just hope no drunken ass spells "Phillies", "E-A-G-L-E-S".) A Philly native, I find it hard to take football seriously. I just can't stand being spritzed with budweiser/saliva , say on a Wednesday evening, as some troglodyte proves he can still spell "eagles" after all these years.
Dare I say they're getting worse, not better?

Thanks for your enthusiasm.

There are so many reasons that Philadelphia's been a football-first city for some time now. For one the Phillies were bad for years and not even terribly likable when good (Schmidt was never a fan fave, Dykstra no role model, who could really relate to an Abreu?). The A's left generations ago. The Phillies were the last team (I believe) to integrate in a city that's mostly non-white.

The Eagles have been competitive (under Reid) or at least highly entertaining (under Ryan) for almost 2 decades.

Now that there's a Phils team that's both on its way up, competitive *and* genuinely likable (Rollins, Howard, Victorino...) I think you'll see, and are seeing, a rebirth in baseball interest. I know that I've paid more attention the past 3 yrs than I had for many before that, and have worn Phils caps for the first time since grade school.

Enjoy the quiz(zes)!
