Ongoing Trivia Sports questions:

I thought I would try and drum up a Trivia questions thread to see how smart we are... However With the internet at our fingertips, it would be to easy to just look up the answer and post it. So all I can ask is if you don't "Know" the answer and you have to look it up, please don't post it.. But if you "KNOW" it, please post it... (I figure as smart as the folks here at BTB are, it won't take long for someone to answer). Once we have an answer, I find another question to ask or if someone has a good stump-er out there, feel free to post it.... Let's see how smart we really are...

OK... since this occurred on my Birthday (WRONG YEAR - right date) I'll start with this one:

Who hit the "Homer in the Gloamin" on September 28, 1938?

Uh Oh, I'm 0 for 1 already

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !

I can't believe my first question was a stump-er. OK Maybe I'll make the next one a bit easier..

FOR those that don't know the answer:

The Homer in the Gloamin’

Darkness had almost enveloped Wrigley Field when Chicago Cubs manager / catcher Gabby Hartnett strode to the plate on September 28, 1938. It was the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Cubs were locked in a 5-5 tie with the Pittsburgh Pirates. To add to the tension, the Cubs had won 8 games in a row and now trailed the first-place Pirates by merely a half-game in the pennant race. Furthermore, with the swiftly fading daylight and no lights at Wrigley Field, the umpires were all set to call the game a tie after Hartnett finished batting.

oooh I think I know this one... But I hate to give it away for others... Are his initials JG?

Also while were talking about being hit by pitches, I happen to know who is who holds the all-time record for being hit... He is a Hall of Famer. He was hit 287 times in his career. (I am just a wealth of information lol) Does anyone know who he is as well as the active player that JTG asked about?

If there are no other takers, the correct answer is in fact Jason Giambi. He has been hit 180 times in his career which currently leads all active major leaguers. Good job bobalou!

How about a pitching question... OK I know this is an easy one but .....

Who was the first pitcher to throw a ball over 100 MPH?
