Oakland A’s trivia: Opening Day lineups from 2000-09

How well do you remember the ‘00s decade?

The 2020 MLB season is on hiatus, and there’s no telling when baseball might start again. In the meantime, let’s play some trivia!

A week ago, we ran a quiz about Oakland A’s Opening Day lineups, specifically from the last 10 years. Now we’re dialing it back another decade, to ask about the 2000s, or the aughts, or whatever you prefer to call them.

The question is, how many players can you name from the A’s 2000-2009 Opening Day lineups? I have constructed a quiz on the website Sporcle to test your knowledge, with the following instructions:

  • You can go in any order, with 10 minutes to fill 100 spaces.
  • You only need to type the last names to register the answers.
  • However, you do have to spell them right!
  • Read the next paragraph about how to not spoil the answers for everyone else in the comments section.

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 right side, in between the option to add a hyperlink and the option to add a smiley face; it looks like a black square.


Alrighty, here is the quiz! It’s embedded below, or you can click here to play it on Sporcle’s site.

How did you do? Are there any that you can’t believe you missed?
