  1. I tried this with a time limit of 1 minute per question...
    HR - 2 correct
    H - 3 correct
    RBI - 1 correct (boo!)
    R - 2 correct
    SB - 2 correct
    Spoiler - I made a mistake by forgetting Schmidt only played regularly starting in 1973. I guess I was mesmerized by seeing him on all of those league leader cards...for the rest of the incorrect answers, I have no excuse.
