1975 World Series, one of the greatest ever, and it seems all anyone remembers is Fisk's HR. Historic moment, no doubt, but as Johnny Bench said years later about how that Series is often remembered, tongue firmly planted in cheek, "The Red Sox won, 3 games to 4."

Along with Robinson, my hero is Roberto Clemente. An incredible 5-tool player and humanitarian, thus the award is named for him. There is a movement to retire his #21 as well, which I would support. The world needs more people like him; who thinks of others in need and does something about it.

Pretty sure Brett's 1980 season was shortened by an injury, not a strike.
Nov 28, 2017
Yes to the last comment. The strike was in 1981. He was on the DL for most of June through the beginning of July in 1980.

Savage....I am a baseball fan and missed only five of the 48 questions. Sadly, that was good enough only to get me 3/5 points. There are some FANS taking this quiz!

Ripken's streak began in 1982, not 1983.

Pete Rose got his 4,000th hit with the Montreal Expos in 1984, not the Cincinnati Reds.

Didn't Jackie Robinson play a bunch of games for the KC Monarchs in the Negro Leagues? He was inducted in 1962... so doesn't that make him he first former Negro Leaguer to be inducted in the HOF?
