Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which team was the first to win three consecutive World Series?

Answer: New York Yankees

It was the Yankees who stepped up in 1936, 1937, and 1938 to be the first to win three in a row. Just in case nobody noticed, they added a fourth in 1939. Other than the Yankees who won three consecutive multiple times, the Oakland Athletics also strung three together from 1972-1974.
2. Who was the first American League pitcher to throw three no-hitters in their career?

Answer: Bob Feller

Feller pitched his 18-season career all with the Cleveland Indians. His no-hitters came in 1940, 1946, and 1951. He threw a Triple Crown also in 1940, but yet never won the MVP Award during his career. Bob also set a single season record by striking out 348 batters in 1946, a record later broken by Sandy Koufax in 1965.

The first pitcher in history to throw three no-hitters was Larry Corcoran in 1880, 1882, and 1884, all with his Chicago White Stockings of the National League. He pitched for only eight seasons in his career.
3. Which Hall of Famer was the first American League slugger to unfortunately lead the league in strikeouts for three consecutive seasons?

Answer: Jimmie Foxx

Hidden behind Foxx's 534 home runs, three MVPs, and a Triple Crown, was the problem he had striking out. He led the AL from 1929-1931, but also led the league another four times. Foxx retired with 1311 strikeouts over 20 seasons in 1945.
4. Batting for the cycle is when a player hits a single, double, triple, and home run all in the same game. Who was the first player in history to hit for the cycle three times?

Answer: Bob Meusel

Meusel played 10 of his seasons as a Yankee from 1920-1930. Although there was no Rookie of the Year Award until 1947, Bob had the numbers in his rookie season with 151 hits and batting .328. He hit for the cycle in 1921, 1922, and 1928. He retired as a Cincinnati Red in 1930. Babe Herman was the first National Leaguer to hit for the cycle three times.

5. Which of these 2011 baseball franchises had three different names during the 20th century?

Answer: Baltimore Orioles

The Atlanta franchise was named the Beaneaters, Doves, Rustlers, Bees, and Braves. The Dodgers were the Brooklyn Superbas, Brooklyn Robins, Brooklyn Dodgers, and Los Angeles Dodgers. Chicago came into the 20th century as the Orphans, then changed their name to Cubs in 1903.

The Cleveland Indians franchise also changed their name three times in the century with the Cleveland Blues, Naps, and Indians.
6. Who was the first manager to take a team to three World Series crowns?

Answer: Connie Mack

Mack was at the helm of the Philadelphia Athletics from 1901-1950. After winning the American League pennants in 1902 and 1905, he took the Athletics all the way to the big crowns in 1910, 1911, and 1913. He would take another AL title in 1914, but would wait until 1929 before he won another World Series. From 1929-1931, Mack took three more AL pennants and two World Series. Huggins took the Yankees to three crowns in 1923, 1927, and 1928. McGraw took the Giants to three in 1905, 1921, and 1922. Chance took the Cubs to two World Series crowns in 1907 and 1908.

Max Carey of the Pirates led the league four consecutive times, and did it twice, but after all the others listed.

Answer: Babe Ruth

The Babe hit three in the Yankees' first-ever World Series crown in 1923 against the Giants. He hit four in the 1926 series in a loss to the Cardinals. Three is a charm, so Ruth hit another three home runs in the 1928 series in a win against the same Cardinals.
