About This Quiz

Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd...

One of the great American sports, baseball is loved throughout the nation, and it has been from the turn of the 20th century. It is so much part of the American psyche that the nation mourned on hearing that some of their heroes had underperformed for cash during the 1919 World Series. 

And it's not just about the skill on show, and there is plenty of that. It's the pre-game rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner," the sound of the organ, the chanting from the home side and the hotdogs... don't forget the hotdogs. They always taste best while overlooking the baseball diamond. Washed down with some liquid refreshment of course! And of all the ballplayers that we love to watch, it's perhaps the pitcher that is the most important. Standing slight raised on the mound, sweat dripping off his forehead, it is he who must outwit the batter, choosing the correct ball at the correct time to seal glory for his team.

So onto the task at hand. Manage a high score in this quiz, and you could totally fake your way as one of the most important players in a baseball team... the pitcher. Or at least you will have his knowledge!

Let's see if you have what it takes...

The batter is ready... are you?
