About This Quiz

"There are three types of baseball players: those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happens." - Tommy Lasorda 

The legends in baseball aren't just born; they're made through years of dedication and a love for the game. To be a legend, these players work their tails off day in and day out just for a chance to succeed. They get up early, before everyone else, and craft their game so they can hit more home runs and throw faster pitches. They mesmerize fans by putting on performances that seem humanly impossible and try to never let those fans down, especially when it counts the most. If they do fail, though, they get back up and try harder the next time because failure is never really an option when your goal is to be the best. 

But, how much knowledge do you have on these baseball legends? Do you know who played where or what kind of statistics they put up throughout their career? Do you know who won World Series and MVP awards? Here's a quiz where you can put your baseball knowledge to the test. Take it and see if you can name these baseball legends from three simple clues!
