Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Another Thursday, another quiz.
Let’s revisit my 41st set from March of 2014.
Today's trivia is a bit of a mish-mosh of interesting stuff I've come across putting lists together.
See if you know any of the answers.
I'll post them up tomorrow…
1. During the decade, what player finished the season with the most at-bats and a 1.000 batting average?
2. What pitcher threw the most innings in a season while still posting a 0.00 E.R.A.?
3. What pitcher saw the most at-bats in a season during the 1970's?
4. Who had the highest batting average in a season for someone with more than 50 at-bats during the decade?
5. What pitcher faced the most hitters while allowing each one to get a hit off of him in a season?
