This isn't a baseball trivia quiz - it focuses entirely on the game's rules and strategies. I've played 17 seasons and truly love the game. I've had many people tell me they think baseball is boring, but I think they simply don't understand the sport well enough to appreciate it. I created this quiz to serve as a litmus test of people's baseball savvy. It's challenging, but fair....I put a lot of effort into ensuring that. There are no trick questions, so if you know baseball like the back of your hand, you'll ace this quiz. Good luck!

    There are two 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?

    Which of the following scenarios might allow a batter to safely reach first base without hitting the ball?
  • 3
    It's the bottom of the last inning of a tie game, and there's 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?
  • 5
    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've 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 fewer 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
    All right, bottom of the ninth inning, one out, runners on first and third 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?
