Trivia

Test Your Knowledge of Your Peers

We celebrated the upcoming 2019 holidays on Thursday, 12/19/2019 with a Coffee and Donuts gathering after our usual softball game. We estimate that about 40 players attended. During the gathering we challenged the folks to a quiz that tested their knowledge of their fellow ballplayers. Emcees Jim Roach and Craig Bernacki led the Q and A session.


Here's a complete list of the challenge trivia questions and answers presented at the get together. For those of you not present you can test your knowledge of how much you know about your baseball peers. Congrats to Team (Table ) 5 for winning in perfect score. Unfortunately you left before we could present you the new Miken bat so we'll carry it over as a prize for next year.


(All questions were posed considering Schaumburg participation only. If a person did not play at Schaumburg they were not accepted answers.)
