Play ball!


With opening day just around the corner, we bring you a quiz based on America's favorite pastime. Match each quote with the episode it's taken from.


Extra credit if you remember which teams Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, and Lou Brock played for during the years that I Spy ran.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

The baseball is easy:
Yankees (the Mick); Dodgers (Koufax); Cardinals (Brock)

As to the quotes, I'm guessing:

D) A Gift From Alexander

E) Happy Birthday Everybody

Home Run, huh!!


B) Now hit a home run.

Umm ... TATIA!

But I have absolutely no idea what Scotty was talking about,
just because a hard-working, talented, female photographer
got hired to take a few photos here and there.

Excellent fielding from Herbie and Tatia. Does anyone recognize A or C?

Re: Play ball!


Cindy is right; A is from Court of the Lion. Which means that quote C must be from . . . ?

To recap


Baseball certainly enjoyed a golden age back in the late 1960s, when Mickey Mantle (New York Yankees) was hitting the cover off any ball that came near him, Sandy Koufax (Los Angeles Dodgers) pitched four no-hitters, and Lou Brock (St. Louis Cardinals) set a new record for stolen bases.




And for one last piece of extra credit: do you recognize this screen shot?

Whoa!

I'm amazed at myself, especially since I couldn't have matched one of the quotes, not even C. Lucky there are some real hitters in the line-up
