Answer: Pat Moran

After managing the Phillies in four seasons, Pat took over the Reds in 1919. Welcome to Cincinnati. He took the Reds to a 96-44 record, the franchise's best record since it began in 1882.

4. Throughout the entire Major Leagues, which team finished in last place the most times during the 2000s decade?

Answer: Tampa Bay

There was some consistency in the decade, but unfortunately for some teams they were on the wrong side of the scope. The Rays led all Major League teams by finishing in last place seven times. The Royals and Nationals were almost as poor, finishing in last place six times. The Rangers and Pirates saw the cellar five times.
The photo of triple sixes was a Satanic sign, depicting the 'Devil' Rays team name which the team was named from 1998-2007. The team was known as the Tampa Bay Rays after that.
5. The Dodgers were in the 1941 World Series, and had game four won when Hugh Casey struck out Tommy Henrich for the third out in the ninth inning.

Who was this hardluck catcher?

Answer: Mickey Owen

Owen played with the Cardinals in four seasons prior, and was in his first season with the Dodgers in 1941. The Dodgers used four different catchers in the 1940 season.
