Opening Day 2020 was postponed, and there’s no telling when baseball might start again. In the meantime, let’s play some trivia!

The question is, how many players can you name from the Oakland A’s last 10 Opening Day lineups? I have constructed a quiz on the website Sporcle to test your knowledge, covering the years 2010-2019. Give it a whirl — you have 10 minutes to fill in 100 spaces, though of course some of them are duplicates. A few instructions:

  • You can go in any order.
  • 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?
