World Series Trivia Questions

1. The very first World Series grand slam was hit in the 1920 series between Cleveland and Brooklyn. Elmer Smith laced a first inning slam to right for the game's first runs. However, what World Series first was this game also known for?

From Quiz
Bases Loaded

Answer: first unassisted triple play

The Cleveland Indians met the Brooklyn Robins (Dodgers) in the 1920 World Series, a best of nine affair. The Indians were wholly in control for most of the series, and eventually won, five games to two. In first inning action in Game 5, the first three Cleveland batters reached base. The bases loaded with Charlie Johnson, Bill Wambsganss, and Tris Speaker, Elmer Smith took the 1-2 pitch and made history. It would prove to be more than enough, and Cleveland went on to win the game 8-1. The game would be interesting for another two reasons. First of all, winning pitcher Jim Bagby became the first pitcher to homer in the World Series. He hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to make the game 7-0. Immediately following this, in the visitor's half of the fifth, Bill Wambsganss was the second baseman for Cleveland. In words of the Cleveland Times the next day: "Pete Kilduff began the top of the fifth with a single to left center. When Otto Miller singled to center, Speaker's quick throw to third drove Kilduff back to second. That brought up reliever Clarence Mitchell, who went six for sixteen as a pinch-hitter this season and sometimes fills in at first base and in the outfield. A left-handed hitter, he drove the ball toward right center. Second baseman Wambsganss moved slightly to his right, tipped onto his toes, sprung a little bit and grabbed the ball with his gloved hand. Never hesitating, he continued to second base, easily doubling Kilduff. Then when Wamby turned to throw to first base he saw Miller frozen directly in front of him. Reaching out, Wamby tagged Miller easily. The crowd was silent momentarily, then, realizing what had happened, broke into thunderous applause."

2. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 2007 against the Colorado Rockies. This was the franchise's ____ World Series crown.

From Quiz So Who's Counting?

Answer: 7th

In 2007, Boston appeared in their 11th World Series, with their first being the first-ever World Series in 1903 as the Boston Americans with a win against the Pirates. The franchise made their 11th appearance in 2007 against the Rockies. Their series crowns came in 1903, 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918, 2004, and 2007. Both their 2004 and 2007 titles were provided by skunking the Cardinals and Rockies, four games to none.

3. Yankee Reggie Jackson hit five home runs in the 1977 World Series against the Dodgers. Which Philadelphia Phillie tied this record in the 2009 World Series against the Yankees?

From Quiz World Series Shining

Answer: Chase Utley

Chase was in his seventh season and second World Series with the Phillies in 2009. He hit two home runs in game one, one in game four, and two in game five. The Phillies would still lose the series to the Yankees, four games to two.

4. The first-ever World Series was held in 1903, pitting the Boston Americans against the NL Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Who scored the first RBI in World Series history?

From Quiz World Series Jambalaya

Answer: Honus Wagner

The others did not play in this series, and would not appear in a World Series for another 20+ seasons. Wagner was one of a group of players who defected from the defunct Louisville Colonels in 1899 to join the Pirates in 1900. After a second-place Pirate finish in 1900, they won three consecutive National League pennants. Wagner hit a single in the top of the first inning in the 1903 series, scoring Tommy Leach (another former Louisville player) to take a 1-0 lead over the Americans. By the time the first inning was over, Pittsburgh had a 4-0 lead. They won the game 7-3, but would lose the series five games to three.

5. Who was this 'beast' of a first baseman who played for the champion 1929 and 1930 Philadelphia Athletics?

From Quiz Ten-Letter First Basemen

Answer: Jimmie Foxx

Nicknamed "The Beast" and "Double XX', Foxx was the second major league player to hit 500 career home runs. He played for the Philadelphia Athletics (1925-1935), Boston Red Sox (1936-1942), Chicago Cubs (1942, 1944), and Philadelphia Phillies (1945).

6. Who gave up Kirk Gibson's game winning HR in game five of the 1984 World Series?

From Quiz World Series Events

Answer: Goose Gossage

This was a go-ahead home run in the 8th inning. This put Gibson's Tigers ahead of Gossage's Padres. The Tigers swept the series. The more famous Gibson HR was his shot off of Eckersley in game one of the 1988 World Series, when Gibson was a member of the LA Dodgers.

7. The first World Series began in 1903 with the Boston Americans taking on the Pittsburgh Pirates. Which team in that decade won the most World Series?

From Quiz Promised Land: The World Series

Answer: Chicago Cubs

Only the Cubs and Tigers existed by name in that decade. Both the Cubs and Tigers appeared in three World Series, but it was the Cubs who won it all in 1907 and 1908. The Tigers lost all three of their World Series in three consecutive appearances from 1907-1909. The very-first series in 1903, the Boston Americans defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates five games to three.

8. This two-time National League shortstop MVP played for 19 seasons and all with the same team. He hit over 500 home runs in his career, but yet never went to the promised land. Who is this Hall of Famer that had to buy his own World Series tickets?

From Quiz World Series Tickets?

Answer: Ernie Banks

Banks was a career Chicago Cub from 1953-1971. His MVPs came in 1958 and 1959. Ernie was also a Rookie of the Year runner-up to the Cardinals' Wally Moon. Banks was a Hall of Fame inductee in 1977.

9. The 1960 World Series was won in the bottom of the ninth inning of game seven. The home run was hit by Bill Mazeroski. Who dished up the pitch?

From Quiz World Series Blunders

Answer: Ralph Terry

All the other former Yankees were all retired by the 1960 season. Terry had gone 10-8 in the season and given up 15 home runs. After losing game four 3-2 in the starting role, he came back in relief in game seven. The Yankees outscored the Pirates in the series 55-27. Bobby Richardson was the MVP of the series for his 11 hits and 12 RBIs for the Yankees.

10. In the 1932 World Series, Yankee Babe Ruth hit his famous "called shot" against the Chicago Cubs. Who was the pitcher?

From Quiz Famous World Series

Answer: Charlie Root

With one out in the fifth inning, legend has it that Ruth pointed to the centerfield stands. On the very next pitch, he hit a home run to dead centerfield.

11. In the first 100 World Series, many pitchers have shown their stuff by winning three games in a single series. Who was the first to do this in two different World Series?

From Quiz World Series Stuff [5]

Answer: Nobody did this

The list of three-game winners in the first 100 included Babe Adams, Harry Brecheen, Lew Burdette, Jack Coombs, Stan Coveleski, Bill Dineen, Randy Johnson, Red Faber, Bob Gibson, Mickey Lolich, Christy Mathewson, Deacon Phillippe, and Joe Wood. Nobody did it twice.

12. The 2006 World Series found the St. Louis Cardinals up against the Detroit Tigers. What year did they last meet in the promised land?

From Quiz World Series Stuff [4]

Answer: 1968

The 1968 series was a much anticipated one with the arms of Tiger Denny McLain and Mickey Lolich going up against the great Bob Gibson of the Cardinals. The Tigers were victorious by wining four of the seven games, and Lolich was the series MVP for winning three of those games. The Tigers and Cardinals also met in the 1934 series, with St. Louis winning four games to three.

13. Who set a record for walking 13 times in the 2002 World Series?

From Quiz World Series Stuff [3]

Answer: Barry Bonds

The 2002 World Series saw the Angels and Giants. Babe Ruth had set the record with 11 in 1926 until Bonds came along.

14. After defeating the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS, then the Angels in the ALCS in 2005, this team went on to win the World Series. Which team was this that skunked the Houston Astros four games to none?

From Quiz World Series Stuff [1]

Answer: Chicago White Sox

The 2005 World Series was actually closer than the four games to none stat indicated. The White Sox outscored the Astros by only 20 runs to 14 in the four games. This included the 14 innings of game three. Chicago's Jermaine Dye was the series' MVP. Jermaine had come from the Athletics a season earlier.

15. Obviously, when you play for the Cubs, the World Series isn't exactly in your plans. It was like that for Ernie Banks, who spent his entire career there. How long did he spend with Chicago's Northsiders?

From Quiz Never Played In A World Series

Answer: 19 years

Banks's career lasted from 1953-1971. Dawson played 2528 games. The Hall-of-Famer went to 11 All-Star games, earned a 1960 Gold Glove awards, and won the 1958 and 1959 MVP awards. Andre Dawson, another ex-Cub, went 2627 games (1976-1996) without going to the World Series, but that was beaten "bettered" by yet another ex-Cub, Rafael Palmeiro, during the 2004 season (playing at Baltimore).

16. Which slugger set a World Series record for hitting five home runs in one series?

From Quiz World Series Stars

Answer: Reggie Jackson

The other greats never went to a World Series in their entire career. Reggie earned his nickname, Mr. October, by hitting five in the 1977 series as a Yankee against the Dodgers. This included hitting three in game six. The Yankees won the series four games to two, and Reggie was the MVP of the series. Jackson hit 18 postseason home runs throughout his career, with 10 being in the World Series.

17. What New York player grounded into three double-plays in one game?

From Quiz You'rrre Outta Here!

Answer: Bobby Cox

The others were never ejected. Cox had his first ousting in 1992 in a game against the Blue Jays, for arguing a call on a batter's check swing. His record-setter was in 1996 against the Yankees for arguing a call on a stolen base. Both World Series ended up in losses for Cox's Braves. Cox, as the manager of the Braves, had set some records during the regular season for ejections also.

19. Bill Wambsganss makes an unassisted triple play in the 1920 World Series.

From Quiz Who Was The Winning Pitcher? #1

Answer: Jim Bagby

The fifth game of the 1920 World Series between Cleveland and Brooklyn contained a number of historic "firsts." Cleveland right fielder Elmer Smith was the first to hit a grand slam home run in World Series play and winning pitcher Jim Bagby was the first pitcher to hit a World Series home run. The most remarkable event, of course, was Wambsganss' unassisted triple play in the 5th inning, which came off the bat of relief pitcher Clarence Mitchell. Burleigh Grimes was the losing pitcher, while Stan Coveleski, who was a three-game winner for the Indians in this Series, did not appear in this game. Eddie Cicotte, who pitched mostly for the White Sox, was not in this World Series. His career ended that season in the wake of the Black Sox scandal in the Series of the previous year.
