    It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means, it’s time to spread some good vibes here on the RotoGrinders forums to help everyone power through the latter half of the week.

    Recently we’ve been running a GIF contest on Wednesday’s, but I wanted to change it up this week and run a trivia contest! But I won’t be asking the questions, you will!

    Here’s how it works:
    Post an MLB themed trivia question (without the answer) in this thread and Private Message me (JoeRapJr) with the answer. I’ll be picking the best question and sending that user some RG swag, so please be creative and come up with a question that is both interesting and challenging!

    Once I pick the winner, I’ll post the answers to the questions!

    Let’s go!

    Out of every game that has gone to extra innings, only two pitchers have managed to record a 4 strikeout inning during an extra frame. One was Steve Delabar of the Toronto Blue Jays. Who was the other one?

    This is really a 2 part question.The Cincinnati Reds turned a triple play last night. Since 1876 there have been 712 triple plays recorded in MLB. Which team is the only team to record 2 in the same game??? And as a BONUS………Which batter has grounded into the most triple plays?????

    Now illegal to do in a game but which wacky player ran the bases backwards after hitting a home run?

    Bonus: How many home runs was this for him in his career when he did this?

    Heard this in the AM today and was amazed – Kurt Suzuki has 9 HR’s this year that have been hit in 9 DIFFERENT innings (he’s never had 2 in the same inning so far) name the 9 different innings.

    walk, hit by pitch, catcher’s interference, fielder’s choice, error, wild pitch on a strikeout?

    batted ball hits a runner

    batted ball hits a runner

    Technically this could be correct but it’s up to the scorers discretion. In most cases the batter is awarded a hit and the runner is called out for interference.

    Not the answer I was looking for but it definitely got me thinking.

    Maybe it should be 7.5 ways to get to first base without getting a hit.

  • yisman

    I listed all the ones I can remember seeing.

    I’m assuming the last is not passed ball strikeout (as opposed to wild pitch strikeout, these are grouped together), so I’m out of ideas. I could look it up but I’m guessing it’s something buried in the rule book that rarely occurs.

    Actually it’s very common. Obvious once you hear it, but like I said it’s tricky.

    For some reason I’m going balk.

  • bucherpsu08

    Only other way I can think of is some sort of fielder interference when running to first.

    Congrats to depalma13 on posting this winning question! I thought this was a great trivia question because it requires the contestant to think back through MLB history and use deductive reasoning!

    All of the questions posted were great and thanks to all for posting!

    So, who can be the first to answer this question?

  • yisman

    what about if the catcher doesn’t return behind home plate in time for the first pitch?

    umpire interference?

  • joerapjr

    Nice dubchr7! Rusty Staub is a tough one to get!

  • depalma13

    Very Cool! I will wear my RotoGrinders swag proudly!
