Research for a show run by my college...help me out!

Postby thrash » Thu Sep 07, 2006 11:28 pm

Freshman @ Ithaca Colleg and I signed up to help out one of the sports shows run by the college. Its called "You Think You Know Sports." Sort of a Stump the Shwab type of show.

I need 10 questions about baseball as it currently stands, submitted in a who/what/which format. Also need 3 random sports questions but came to the BASEBALL cafe for the baseball questions.

Heres what I have so far:

Which pitcher just recently ended the longest no hitter drought in major league history?
A: Anibal Sanchez

Who had the longest hit streak this season?
A: Chase Utley

Which AL outfielder is in the top 5 in BA, HR, and RBI?
A: Jermaine Dye

Which catcher leads the league in batting average?
A: Joe Mauer

Which highly touted prospect threw his bat at an umpire resulting in a 50 game suspension?
A: Delmon Young

What outfielder broke his nose running into the outfield wall on a spectacular catch?
A: Aaron Rowand

I'm supposed to submit them in order of easiest to hardest, so the first is hypothetically supposed to be the easiest and so on. Any help is appreciated. Thanks![/b]

I knew all but 2 of all questions asked so far, and I'm a trivia idiot. I'm way more than the casual fan, so if the target audience is casual this is perfect. If it is a sports crowd, make it harder, and if it is totally random, its okay to slightly too hard.
