Do I even need to do the whole “there’s no baseball, so here’s a semi-baseball related article” intro at this point? You know the deal.

What we have right here to distract you from that Zoom call you’re on is a quiz! Who doesn’t love a pop quiz?! How it’s going to work is you’re going to see some collected stats that different Rays players put up in their time in St. Pete. Again, this is just the player’s stats while as a member of the Rays. There will be some with career stats and some with individual seasons attached the later we get (bonus points in you can name the year).

So grab a piece a paper and jot down your answers as you go along, and head to the comments for the answers to see how you did. We’re going to make them more and more challenging as we go. Good luck!
