Cal Ripken, Jr., 1996 Collector's Choice You Make the Play #33
It's time for a pop quiz! Don't worry, it doesn't count toward your final grade. One of my latest time-wasting obsessions is Sporcle, a site full of user-created timed quizzes on any and every subject under the sun: music, television, sports, geography, history, language...you name it. Naturally I gravitate toward the sports quizzes. There are a ton just pertaining to the Orioles, if you do a site search, but I also like to challenge myself with more general-knowledge stuff, like the 20-game winners of the 2000s or the members of the Hall of Fame. It was just a matter of time before I decided to throw my own hat into the ring. I present to the first quiz of my own creation: The Top Ten All-Time Maryland-Born Home Run Leaders. Billy Ripken just missed the cut, but his brother might be on there. I wouldn't want to give away my secrets. So go give it a whirl, and let me know what you think! I'd also appreciate it if you could rate the quiz. Have fun!
