The 2015 MLB All-Star Game will be played tonight in Cincinnati. Since moving to Oakland in 1968, the Athletics have had a total of 114 All-Star player selections, including their two this year.
The question is, how many of Oakland's past All-Star players can you remember? I have constructed a quiz on the website Sporcle to test your knowledge. Give it a whirl -- you have 12 minutes to go all the way back to 1968, but you can go in any order and you only need the last names to register the answers. You have to spell them right, but I did include a couple of abbreviated nicknames to make things a bit easier. You only need each name once, as it will fill in all instances of that player.
Share your results in the comments, BUT DON'T SPOIL ANYTHING!! There is an option in the comments for "spoiler text," which will black out that particular text until the reader puts their mouse over it to reveal it. If you are going to share right/wrong answers, please use the spoiler option. It's on the row of options like bold, italics, etc., all the way on the end, next to the option to add a hyperlink; it looks like a black square.
DON'T BE THAT PERSON WHO SPOILS THE ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS.
Alrighty, here is the quiz, or you can click here to play it directly on Sporcle's site:
How did you do??
(Note: Nobody's perfect. If you find an error, please don't hesitate to let me know because I can go back in and fix it. But also note that this is all copied directly from MLB.com so if there's an error then really it is baseball's fault for not knowing its own history. By the way, if you want to know the answers when you're done, click that link to MLB's site.)
