Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the decade of the 2000s, no National League slugger won consecutive home run crowns. However, there was one player in the American League who banged his way to consecutive crowns. Which player was this?

Answer: Alex Rodriguez

Alex of the Yankees not only won two, but strung three consecutive home run titles together from 2001-2003, then won another in 2007. In 2010, A-Rod hit his 600th career home run, the seventh player in history to achieve the milestone.

2. Which Hall of Famer won the first-ever Rookie of the Year Award?

Answer: Jackie Robinson

Robinson's number 42 was retired Major League wide in his honor for being the first African-American in modern day history to play in the big leagues. He won the rookie award in 1947, then won the National League MVP in 1949. Jackie played in only 10 seasons. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962, then died 10 years later.
3. The expansion team Arizona Diamondbacks won the World Series in only their fourth season in the big leagues. Which other team won it all in their fifth season?

Answer: Florida Marlins

The Florida Marlin franchise began in 1993 along with the Colorado Rockies. It only took until the 1997 season to find themselves in the promised land. They met the Cleveland Indians and won the series, four games to three. Marlins pitcher Livan Hernandez was the series MVP.

4. Who was the first player in Major League history to have 200 hits in a season, 10 times in his career?

Answer: Pete Rose

Pete played his career from 1963-1986, mostly with the Reds. His first season of 200 hits was in 1965 with his 209. His 10th was his only 200-hit season with the Phillies in 1979. Rose topped out at 230 hits in 1973, earning him the National League MVP Award.

He also won the Rookie of the Year in 1963. Pete was later banned from baseball for gambling on baseball, then later admitted to it. Suzuki of the Mariners matched Rose's 10th 200-hit season in 2010, but Ichiro did his all consecutive. Ty Cobb had nine 200-hit seasons all with the Tigers. Joe Jackson had only four 200-hit seasons, and was banned from baseball in 1920 after the Black Sox Scandal of 1919. Fans would never know what might have been.
5. "Modern day baseball" began in 1920 with almost a total restructure of the rules of baseball. Who was the first modern day player to hit .400 three times?

Answer: Rogers Hornsby

Hornsby played most of his 23 seasons from 1915-1937 with the Cardinals. He batted .401 in 1922, .424 in 1924, and .403 in 1925, all winning the NL batting titles. Rogers batted over .350 an amazing nine times in his career, retiring with a .3585, only second to the great Ty Cobb.

6. Four managing greats retired after the 2010 season. Of those four greats, who took their team to a World Series crown the fastest in their managing career?

Answer: Piniella

Lou Piniella was a player of 18 seasons, retiring in 1984. He took the reins of the Yankees from 1986-1988, then had the Cincinnati Reds in his fourth season in 1990. He and the Reds won the World Series against the Athletics in that season. Lou managed in 23 seasons. Cox managed in four seasons for the Blue Jays, then the Braves for another 29.

In his 14th season, he took the Braves to his only World Series Championship in 1995. Torre began his managerial career with the 1977 Mets. It would be 14 seasons later when he found his first World Series crown in 1996 with the Yankees. Joe would win six American League pennants with the Yankees, including four World Series. Gene Mauch never took a team to the World Series in his 26 seasons.
7. This Major Leaguer played for two teams over his 19-season career. He won seven batting titles with one team, then as soon as he was traded, the batting crowns stopped. Who is this Hall of Famer?

Answer: Rod Carew

Carew was a Minnesota Twin from 1967-1978, winning the Rookie of the Year Award along with the 1977 American League MVP. Prior to the 1979 season, the Twins traded Rod to the California Angels for Dave Engle, Paul Hartzell, Brad Havens, and Ken Landreaux. Carew was not happy with the compromising loyalty, and he lost much interest in baseball. He played for another seven seasons with the Angels, never winning a batting title again.

Their record was eight games worse than the second-worse NL team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Pirates did not have one starter who batted .300, or had one pitcher win in double-figures. The Rays won the AL East with a 96-66 record.

Answer: Jim Rice

Mike Schmidt of the Phillies won three consecutive while George Foster of the Reds won two. Rice played his entire career with the Boston Red Sox from 1974-1989. He won consecutive home run titles in 1977 and 1978, and won the American League MVP in the latter season.

10. During the 1960s, the New York Yankees had a tremendous season in 1961, winning 109 games. Which other team in the decade also won 109 games in a season?

Answer: Baltimore Orioles

They defeated the Reds in that World Series four games to one. The 1969 Baltimore Orioles were led by the bats of Boog Powell and Frank Robinson, and the arms of Mike Cuellar and Dave McNally.
