Good morning everybody, and welcome. Please, take a seat and prepare yourself for the cumulative exam. As you know, we’ve spent the last several weeks studying White Sox Opening Day lineups, position by position. Last week, we received perfect scores from asinwreck, kenwo, pnoles, and our fearless leader, Jim Margalus. Today, all of you have the opportunity to take what you’ve learned and apply it to the entire baseball diamond! In case you’re wondering: in order to achieve an “A” grade (90%) you will need to correctly input 261 of 290 names. Good luck and godspeed!
(One final note: this is a HUGE quiz; as such, you may wish to use the direct link at the bottom and enter names directly from the Sporcle site)
- As always, first and last names accepted, in addition to just the last names.
- I’ve given you the maximum amount of time — 20 minutes — to attempt completion.
- As hints I’ve provided the date and the position of the player in question. Lineups are sorted by year, beginning with 1990.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or confuse your friends:
- On Opening Day since 1990, the White Sox have a record of 18-11.
- The most runs scored by a White Sox team –ever– on Opening Day was 17, a 17-3 drubbing of the St. Louis Browns on April 17, 1951.
- Their biggest loss was a 12-0 shutout against the Twins on April 7, 1970.
