Level 85

Smacking myself in the forehead - I'm so used to only typing people's last names on this site, I couldn't fathom the idea that they wanted his first name!

Same here until I looked at the length of the underscore. It was way too short for Henderson
Level 65
Apr 3, 2017
Same here. Tried "Henderson" 10 times. The tried "Brock" once. Then I gave up. Need to read more closely.

Great quiz!

Technically, Frank Thomas was known as "The Big Hurt", not just Hurt.
Level 82
May 8, 2014
Yes, It only gave "unit" for Randy Johnson, and he is the Big Unit. That's why it only gave "hurt" for Thomas.
Level 49
Mar 23, 2018
and technically so was Randy Johnson, he wasnt the unit..
Level 47
