Baseball History/Terminology

Baseball is a great sport that a lot of people overlook. After all, it is the first major league sport. I hope you enjoy this quiz about my favorite sport.

You call yourself a baseball fan? Or are you just a Yankees fan? I hope not. Eastern teams are taking over the world!! GO ROCKIES!! Anyways, there's a big difference than being an (insert team here) fan than being a baseball fan. Take my quiz and find out what you are. :D (and yes, that is my favorite smiley)
