    A Yankee Trivia question

    OK, this will be for either the older guys here or a young one with WAY too much time on his/her hands.
    Also, PLEASE, PLEASE, no one see anything racial with this little quiz!!

    Try and do it without any Internet help!!!

    At the end of Game 6 of the 1978 World Series clincher there were 9 caucasian Yankees on the field. Name them! The first to name all 9 wins... nothing!
    Good luck!

    I'm not sure that's true Al

    I'm certain you're right about the battery and infield..
    Goose pitching..Munson catching

    IF: Jim Spencer..Brian Doyle..Bucky Dent..Nettles

    But I think the OF was probably:
    OF: Paul Blair..Jay Johnstone..Gary Thomasson

    Unless for some reason Pinella was still in the game with Johnstone and Thomasson..but I think it was Blair.

    Blair often replaced Old Man Rivers in late innings.

    But 8 out of 9 anyway..

    Yes, Piniella was in the game, RF. Thomasson in left, JJ in center.

    Very good job CT!!!
    Thomasson, Johnstone or Spencer always surprised people.

    Thanks, Al.

    I remember Bob Lemon using alot of people.

    But, if this is correct, I can't imagine why either Rivers or Blair was not in CF.

    Oh well..the answer is out there in cyberspace somewhere.

    Here's another trivia question for you:
    Babe Ruth had two of his Major League records broken in 1961. One obviously was the single season HR record. What was the other and who broke it?

    Was that Whitey Ford breaking his record for scoreless WS innings?

    Well, honestly both Fred Stanley and Jim Mason would qualify as an answer to your question.

    But Stanley was the starter and had ZERO Sac flies all year, so I figured my response was a pretty good one to your question.
