Doesn't trivia by definition include things with no historical significance? :-)

From Merriam-Webster online :-)


Main Entry: triv·ia
Pronunciation: 'tri-vE-&
Function: noun plural but singular or plural in construction
Etymology: (assumed) New Latin, back-formation from Latin trivialis
Date: 1920
: unimportant matters : trivial facts or details; also singular in construction : a quizzing game involving obscure facts

By the way, fairness and fair play are appreciated even if some might not think so. Also, I guess the main reason I am here is to have fun. I can only hope all that enter here are having fun as well. Trivia is, well, trivial I suppose but it is still interesting and in some cases challenging in different ways to different people.

Flaming however, is not.

Just a thought :-D

I think it is a little different when a player pitches in one world series and plays outfield in another, than if he played first base and shortstop. Gives us a break

The two teams he played in the series for are Boston and Cleveland he was a much better pitcher than outfielder

How about Smokey Joe Wood? Although he wasn't much better as a pitcher than an outfielder, he did play for both teams I think. Whether he played during their World Series runs, I don't know.
