    Baseball rules quiz

    http://www.rulesofbaseball.com/quiz1.html

    I got 4 of 10, but I wasn't completely wrong on 3 others.

    It isn't too easy.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Re: Baseball rules quiz

    I got 6, plus a couple of "could be's"

    Tough.

    When I was a kid. I subscribed to "Baseball Digest" which had a section called "So you think you know baseball" and one of these questions every month.
    They would have cute caricatures showing the play, which I liked, since I was a KID.

    Pretty interesting. I got 7 out of 10. I disagree with their rulings on #4 and #7. I just plain old missed #10.

    8 out of 10, man that was a tough quiz. I have umpiring experience and had to really think those through. Thanks for the link that was great fun!

    I got 8 and I missed #7. I missed it because I didn't think it was up to the umpire to report the error. Which part did you disagree with?

    6 out of 10 right. It was a very tough quiz.

    I agree, once play resumes I don't see how you can go back and change things.

    Six of 10 here, as well. Very tough quiz (though there were a couple of "oh...yeah...that makes sense" rulings).
    I thought number 9 was a great question (and one I found remarkable that I got right). I am betting most booth announcers would go crazy with the ruling.
