    Ok board. Third year. We may have some repeats but that's ok. We old farts won't remember anyway. Also we need to have the poster who answers the question correctly within 24 hours. If a poster does not repond in 24 hours then the poster who ask the question gets to ask another. Another couple of items is that we don't start asking several questions at one time. There should only be one question at a time . In the past off season we have had some questions ask that had muliple answers. This becomes difficult because we have had muliple posters answering the question and it becomes confuseing. Let's just keep it simple as possible and have fun.

    I'll start it .

    What former Yankee shortstop was playing a harmonica on the team bus after a loss. Yogi Berra did not see the humor and gave him a hard time. OFC

    Just to let all know. The poster who gets the answer correctly has 24 hours to ask the next question. If the 24 hours is not met then the poster who ask the question will ask another question. Using my 1st question as an example I acknowledged that tate was correct at 2:31 p.m. on 3/20/20. Tate12 has until 2:31 p.m. on 3/24/20 to respond and ask the next question. Also in the past years we seem to get more than one question going at one time. The only way you can ask a question is to get a correct answer. Another issue we seem to run into is when someone ask a multiple part question that requires more than one answer. When this happens most of the time we get different posters answering different parts and makes it hard to figure out who is to ask the next question. Let's keep it as simple as possible and fun. OFC

    I’m going to take a wild guess and my wild guess is probably going to be terribly misspelled because I have no idea how to spell his last name lol. Carl Yastrzemski

    I figured I would be wrong because the only reason they I guess Carl Yastrzemski was because he’s the only player that I could think of that was probably Jewish because of his last name.
