    Better then me. I was 40%
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I got 60%, but after reading the 1st question I started going against my 1st instinct on most lol.

    I got 60%, which is great if they grade on the curve.

    I got the first 7 right, but missed the last 3.

    Three out of ten.

    My only excuse is that I don't follow rules.

    50% - if i had gone with my initial instincts on two of them, i would have had 70%.

    I wonder if 7 has ever happened. I imagine it has but I've never seen it.

    #7 "No runs can score when an inning ends in a forceout. Because Willingham was forced to go to second on the play, the appeal resulted in an inning-ending forceout."

    Thus nullifying the grand slam.

    Redszone posters apparently need to be replaced by computers which would not make such mistakes....

    Not a grand slam, but the infamous 1908 Merkle's Boner comes to my mind.
