Perfect for a baseball party game
Baseball Theme Party Supplies, Invitations and Paper Goods
Baseball is a game of numbers, stats and a long storied history. All of us played baseball at some time (ok maybe softball at a company picnic). It is America’s pastime and many of us think we are baseball trivia experts. So why not have a baseball trivia game as party of your Opening Day Festivities.
We put together some questions for your baseball trivia quiz. Some are easy and some not so easy. Don’t worry we included answers. (By the way I got over 90% which should win me a prize of some sort.) We also have added some sites that have much more baseball history. Our favorite is The Baseball Almanac and if you don’t mind spending $20 the Baseball Encyclopedia is fabulous.
