Well this has me stumped ...



I will take a wild guess and say Charlie Robertson,he pitched in the 20's and i remember he got a no hitter early on in the season.Or David Wells got a no hitter about 5 years ago early on in the season.

as promised here is the answer to the trivia question....who pitched the only opening day no hitter?

April 16, 1940, when 21-year old Bob Feller threw the first and only Opening Day no-hitter, shutting down the White Sox at old Comiskey Park, 1-0. It was all the more remarkable considering the temperature was a chilly 35 degrees at game time and Feller was pitching on two days rest.

What was the name of the first stadium each of these MLB teams played in? What years did they play in these ballparks?

Cubs

Reds

Expos

Giants

Red Sox

Tigers

Twins

Yankees

Rangers

also consider that not all of these teams played in the same cities they are in now, and also might have had different names when they were in other cities. good luck.

I was really surprised to see that the New York Yankees were originally the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles that we know today were formed in 1954.

baseball-almanac.com...


From "NY Yankees History"

1901-1902 - Franchise formed in 1902 in Baltimore, Maryland as the Baltimore Orioles, played at Oriole Park from 1902 to 1903
First Game played: April 26, 1902
Orioles (Yanks) 10 Boston 6

1903-1912 Moved to New York City, renamed the New York Highlanders, played at Hilltop Park from 1903 to 1912

1913-Present Renamed New York Yankees. Played at Polo Grounds from 1913-1922. In 1923, the Yankees moved into Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York where they remain to this day except for a two year period from 1974-1975 when they played at Shea Stadium while Yankee Stadium was being remodeled.

Player Quotes, who said the below quotes?

player 1.
"I'm probably the only guy who worked for (Casey) Stengel before and after he was a genius."

"He was something like zero for twenty-one the first time I saw him. His first major league hit was a home run off me and I'll never forgive myself. We might have gotten rid of Willie (Mays) forever if I'd only struck him out."

player 2.
"He'd (Reggie Jackson) give you the shirt off his back. Of course he'd call a press conference to announce it."

"The thing about Reggie (Jackson) is that you know he's going to produce. And if he doesn't, he's going to talk enough to make people think he's going to produce."

player 3.
"If I stay healthy, I have a chance to collect 3,000 hits and 1,000 errors."

"The Royals and the Yankees hated each other. To this day, whenever I see Lou Piniella or one of those Yankees, we talk about how we hated those guys. One time I didn't even have the ball and (Piniella) tried to spike me at third base."

player 4.
"The base paths belonged to me, the runner. The rules gave me the right. I always went into a bag full speed, feet first. I had sharp spikes on my shoes. If the baseman stood where he had no business to be and got hurt, that was his fault."

"When I began playing the game, baseball was about as gentlemanly as a kick in the crotch."

"When I came to Detroit I was just a mild-mannered Sunday-school boy."

"You've got to remember - I'm seventy-three." On why he would only hit .300 against today's pitchers.

this one could be tough, if it's too tough let me know and i'll find something else. all the quotes come from hall of famers so that will narrow the possibilities a little, good luck.

here's an easier one.

What is the second oldest ballpark still in use today, in the AL and NL. What was the date of the first games played in both of these ballparks?
