    Baseball Trivia

    While at the mall today, I saw some pretty uncommon hats, and I thought they might make for a good trivia series. Here they are: (sorry about the size)







    Correctly guessed by westofyou- Portland Beavers





    If you want to make a guess, please describe the hat and guess the team. Only one guess per hat/team per person, please!

    I will reveal the teams as they are correctly guessed.

    Have fun! I hope this is as much of a challenge for you all as it was for me...

    Re: Baseball Trivia

    I'm something of an old-timey baseball hat enthusiast (I own STL Browns and Philadelphia A's caps), but even I'm struggling to identify 'em. Here are my guesses though:

    1. navy blue - Philadelphia Athletics
    2. blue - New York Giants
    3. green - Pittsburgh Pirates
    4. red - Boston Braves
    5. blue - Boston Red Sox
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Baseball Trivia

    Still none right so far...

    Glad to see this wasn't only a challenge for me!

    Hint: These are/were all professional baseball teams, but may not all be current/former MLB teams.

    Re: Baseball Trivia

    I'm guessing w/ 42 out in the theaters and knowing the costs associated w/ getting an official MLB liscense that these are primarily (perhaps even exclusively) negro league teams?

    I'll guess
    1) Atlanta Black Crackers
    2) NY Black Yankees
    3)?????
    4)???? I know Boston Braves is out since it was mentioned above.
    5) Boston Braves

    Re: Baseball Trivia

    well an internet search turned up the answer for 3 of them, none of which included the Portland Beavers, but I'll w/hold that info for people who actually know the answer or wants to guess.

    oh, and none of my guesses above were correct.
