Sports: Baseball Manager Quiz

  1. Which baseball manager holds the record for most ejections (set in 2007)?
  2. In 1998, Barry Bonds became the fifth player to be given an Intentional Base On Balls with the bases loaded. Who was the opposing manager?
  3. Who was the last player-manager in Major League Baseball?
  4. The Texas Rangers had 4 managers in 1977, including one who lasted just one game. Can you name all four?
  5. Match the manager to the quote:
    (a) Tommy Lasorda(1) "Good pitching will always stop good hitting and vice-versa."
    (b) Leo Durocher (2) "The key to winning baseball games is pitching, fundamentals, and three run homers."
    (c) Casey Stengel(3) "I made a game effort to argue but two things were against me; the umpires and the rules."
    (d) Earl Weaver(4) "He (Darryl Strawberry) is not a dog; a dog is loyal and runs after balls."

Bonus: Earl Weaver's profanity-laced "Manager's Corner". (Apparently, it was pre-taped and never aired.)
