Here are the answers to last week’s Spring Training Trivia Challenge questions.
1. Which team did the Phillies defeat to win the 1980 World Series?
Kansas City Royals
2. What 12-time All-Star and career-long Phillies player was voted MVP three times and elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1995?
Congratulations to Bill Baer of Pennsylvania, the winner of the first challenge.
For having his entry drawn from all of the correctly answered entries that we received, Bill Baer wins a copy of Almost a Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of the 1980 Phillies by William C. Kashatus, and a chance at the grand prize–Tickets for Two to a Phillies Game.
For last week’s trivia challenge, we lobbed a couple of easy ones out there just to get things started. Now that we’re warmed up, it’s time for a tougher set of questions.
