It isn't your great-grandfather's game anymore. Modern baseball has been shaped by many events since the game was invented 200 years ago. Can you name them without looking at the graphic below?
Ok, you weren't around, and you didn't know that 21 million hot dogs are sold at baseball games each year. It's understandable, since most of us barely have enough time these days to remember our own cell phone number.
I'll start off with an easy question? "Do you know the year that the firtst official game of baseball was played?
Don't cheat! Write your answers down on a piece of paper.
Ok, got that one? Next question, "Do you know when the first pack of baseball cards was created?" Ok you may be thinking, who cares as it doesn't affect much? "Oh, really? Ask O.J."
Next question. This is an easy ONE. "In 1920 what was the cost of the average baseball ticket?" There's a clue in the question!
A few more questions and you'll know whether you truly are a afficianado of the great game.
"In what year was baseball broadcast on radio for the first time?"
Here's one you ought to know.
"What was the year that teams began wearing numbers on the back of their jerseys?"
Now for the most important question of all:
