Forget the useless trivia - this quiz focuses entirely on the rules and strategies of baseball. I have played 17 seasons of baseball and love the game more than anything in the world. I cannot stand all the ignorant people I've met who tell me that baseball is boring, when, really, they simply do not understand the sport well enough to appreciate it. I have spent hours carefully creating this quiz so that it can serve as a litmus test of people's baseball savvy. It was designed to be challenging, but great effort was also put into ensuring its fairness. There ARE NO TRICKS to this quiz - if you know baseball like the back of your hand, you will ace it. Answer all ten questions correctly, and I will believe that you genuinely understand the game. Answer any less than nine of the questions correctly, and you will know that you are not qualified to assess baseball's entertainment value.

    OK, there are 2 outs and a runner on third base. The batter hits a ground ball and is thrown out at first. On the play, the runner at third comes home. -- Does the run count?
  • 2
    Which of the following scenarios might allow a batter to safely reach first base without hitting the ball?
  • 3
    It is the bottom of the last inning of a tie game, and there is a runner on third base. A fly ball is hit high in the air straight to the center fielder. -- What does the runner on third do?
  • 4
    Some players can bat equally well right-handed and left-handed. As they step up to the plate, what most often determines with which hand they will choose to bat?

    When are base runners allowed to steal bases?
  • 6
    A fly ball is hit to deep left field. It clears the outfield fence, but bounces off the foul pole and back onto the field. What is the ruling?
  • 7
    Even if they have been told to bunt during their at-bat, players seldom attempt to bunt after two strikes have been called. Why is this?
  • 8
    If there are runners on first and second base and less than two outs, any fly ball hit to the infield is automatically ruled as an out. Why is this?
  • 9
    Given the geometry of a baseball diamond and the direction in which the players run the bases, which outfielder(s) would you expect to have the strongest throwing arm(s)?
  • 10
    Alright, bottom of the ninth inning, one out, runners on 1st and 3rd base. Your team is in the field. YOU MUST END THE INNING DURING THIS AT-BAT. -- A hard ground ball is hit straight to you at shortstop; You field it cleanly. What do you do?
