Not that a baseball quiz as excellent as this will ever be worthy enough to be featured, but if you WANT it to be featured, you should probably make allowance for a few misspellings of "Hershiser". (e.g. Hersheiser)

Surprised you didn't mention that from 1914-1931 they were known as the "Robins". (or "Superbas" before that) Great quiz, though!

Another interesting fact from Dodger history is that in 1977 (before the steroid & HGH era) they became the first team ever to have 4 guys hit 30 or more HRs in a single season. (Dusty Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey & Reggie Smith)

Wasn't sure of the Korean player but tried "Kim" and then "Park" rightfully figuring I had a good chance.

Lol. Apparently 20% of Koreans are named Kim. Add Park and Lee and you're up to 45%.

Other fun things would've been Eric Gagne's saves streak, the Rookie of the Year streak, and question to which the answers are, respectively, Chavez Ravine, Walter Alston, Duke Snider.

As a Dodger fan since the days of Brooklyn, this was a really nice quiz. Thanks!
