MLB Trivia Challenge Podcast Episode 9 with guest Jonah Keri sponsored by the M&A consultants and advisors at Generational Equity

A lot happened in baseball over the last two weeks. The White Sox seemingly got back into the AL Central race, only to lose a week’s worth of games to drop back out of the race, only to then sweep the Twins to seemingly get back in the race. The Phillies continued their assault towards 110 wins. The Red Sox assumed control of the Yankees and the AL East. And…much, much, much more.

In addition, we recorded another thrilling episode of the Internet’s most popular baseball trivia podcast

Episode #9 of the MLB Trivia Challenge Podcast (sponsored by the buyer ready experts and M&A consultants at Generational Equity), features Jonah Keri of Grantland.

As explained on the rules and information page, we will be rewarding one winner each time a new MLB Trivia Challenge Podcast and quiz are posted. This winner will be awarded as follows:

  • Each correct answer nets you one point. Most points wins.
  • In the event of a tie, we will choose from the top group at random.
  • The winner receives a $20 gift certificate to Chili’s*, which is perfect for a Chili’s Lunch Break.

  • Weekly winners can go bold with the new six-dollar lunch break combo at Chili’s. Choose a house made soup or salad and then pick a half Texas Toast sandwich like the Southwestern BLT smothered in cilantro lime mayo.

  • Note: You have ONE WEEK from today to submit yours answers and be eligible for the weekly prize. Next Thursday at 11:59 pm CT, entries are closed and we award a winner.

In addition to the weekly prizes, a grand prize winner will be chosen at the end of the season. Simply put, the grand prize winner will be the person who tallies up the most points throughout the season, regardless of when the quiz is taken.

A few final notes you need to know before we let you have at it:

  • LISTEN to the podcast; each week we will be including one bonus question taken directly from our discussion.
  • ONLY your first entry counts, for the weekly prize and grand prize.
  • MAKE SURE you use the same UserID throughout the season. This is how we will keep track of your scores.
  • PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the instructions after each question. Due to the parameters of the quiz program we are using, and our inability to hand-grade thousands of quizzes each week, we must request that you very specific and particular in how you answer the questions. Thus, you MUST spell names correctly. Think of it this way: attention to detail is paramount in baseball, so shouldn’t it be part of the challenge? Absolutely.

And now, drumroll the please, we give you your chance to answer. Have fun!


Obviously we cannot post the answers because this is an ongoing trivia challenge.

Check back in two weeks when we’ll post the 10th episode of the MLB Trivia Challenge sponsored by the buyer ready experts at Generational Equity. Remember: someone is winning an iPad and a subscription to when this is all said and done…it might as well be you.

* – Chili’s gift certificate good in U.S. only.
