About This Quiz

"The Great Bambino, the Sultan of Swat, the Titan of Terror, the Colossus of Clout, the King of Crash." If you know who we're talking about, there's a great chance that you're a major MLB fan or you've watched The Sandlot repeatedly.

For the longest time, baseball has been considered "America's pastime." First founded in 1876 with just the National League, the sport blossomed into Major League Baseball, an organization that now includes both the National and American Leagues for a total of 30 major league baseball teams. Hundreds of men have gone through the league, but only a few have names that truly resonate with fans. From the most home runs to the highest batting average, these athletes are some of the best the sport has ever seen.

Names like Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson, Pete Rose, and Alex Rodriguez are easily recognizable, but what if I told you one of them holds the record for the most games played? What if I told you another holds the record for the most grand slams? Can you identify who the Great Bambino is? If you're rattling off the answers to these questions, it seems our quiz has met its match! Will you be able to score a home run against this quiz? Step up to the plate!
