Maybe another minute would be helpful. I got 62/66 but only had 10 second left to go back and think about the questions I skipped. Nice Quiz!

Good quiz, but you definitely need more time. And maybe a little leeway on WHIP?

I think you should make "WHIP" a little more lenient. I tried putting "Walks plus hits per inning pitched" which is still technically correct and the answer was not accepted. Also, "FO" could also be foulout if foulouts are recorded individually.

Agreed. I score a fly out to the right fielder as "9" whereas a foul out to the right fielder is "F9"

Yes, lots of fun, agree w/ others about more time. Also, Save Opportunities should be plural/allow the plural.
