Tinker to Evers to ... No Chance of Getting Laid
A quiz for baseball nerds.
Baseball inspires a unique brand of geek. Don’t believe us? Chew on this:
OBP = (H + BB + HBP) / (AB + BB + HBP + SF)
If you even know what an OBP is, we’ll consider you a pinstriped baseball geek. These are the folks that fill in the scorecards at games and that hover over spreadsheets packed with percentages expressed to the thousandth. Geeks Who Drink salutes you, baseball nerd, with a our first ever baseball themed quiz.
On deck for July is “Tinker to Evers to … NO CHANCE of Getting Laid: A quiz for baseball nerds.”
Yeah, baseball is a huge subject, worthy of an 18+ hour documentary
. How much will we cover? Expect broad themes -- players, stadiums, teams, controversies, pop culture references, balls, etc. Will we ask deep questions, like Ty Cobb’s batting average for the 1909 World Series? Not likely. (He batted a lowly .231.) Must you know what a “balk” is? Likely.
As always, teams are limited to six players, and there’s an admission fee of $5 per player. The
winning team may not get box seats, but they will take home a cash purse between $200 and $500 (depending on total number of players).
These events draw record numbers of players and are first come, first served. Get there early to ensure you can play.
