Most were even before my time, or the time of TV for that matter. The first year I really followed baseball was the summer of 1961. Anyone remember that year in baseball?

Yep, but most important it was the summer of home runs. I remember grabbing the sports section out of the paper each morning to see how many home runs Mickey Mantle had hit the day before. I visited his hometown of Commerce, Oklahoma two years ago and saw the house he grew up in. The summer of 61 the M & M boys were slugging it out for the most home runs. Mantle led Maris most of the year but Maris had a late surge of HR's.

I don't think you have to be that old to know the questions.

The Cardinals just won a World Series last year and there was all kinds of talk about them having the most NL Pennents.

The Brewers left the AL only 10 years ago.

The 'Shot Heard Round the World' is one of, if not the most, famous scenes in baseball history.

The question about the ballparks applies to today's game.

Well...the other two questions about the all-star strikeouts and the on base percentage were kind of hard.
