I know it isn't the correct spelling, but I think "Wrigly" and "Wriggly" should count....

Why wouldn't we just accept "Ryglee" then? Heck, why not just accept anything you type?

The line goes "If you build it, they will come." Last time I checked, there was a whole team in the movie, not just one guy. ;-)

"If you build it, HE will come", not they. In the end, it's all about bringing one man, not the whole team.

All I could come up with for Brett's bat was 'pitch.' Knew it wasn't quite right, but couldn't get there.

Perhaps the clue should be changed to something that is less likely to change year after year. I suggest something like: Bench coach that Pedro Martinez threw to the ground during a brawl. Or, 2000 AL Rookie of the year. Or, 2002 AL Cy Young Award winner. The respective answers: Zimmer, Zito, Zito.

Great selection. All three 1999 HoFers managed to find their way in the quiz - two of them not even under their own letter.

Come on, no X? There's so many possibilities. X= Xander Bogaerts X= Xavier Nady X = strikeout in a box score

Z should be bench coach punched by Pedro Martinez in 2003 ALCS
