Pre-Season Quiz 2 Solved

Thanks for all the interest in this one.

The question was "Mike Greenwell was the only Red Sox player since 1960 to do what three years in a row ('89-'91)?"

X has answered that he ended the season three years in a row. That's correct. More specifically, he was the last Red Sox batter of the season.

In the last game of 1989, he grounded into a 6-3 double play to end the eighth in a win vs. Milwaukee.

In the last game of 1990, he grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to end the eighth in a win vs. the White Sox. (He also ended the ALCS, with a ground out to short to end game four.) (And he grounded out to second to end game one, just so you know.)

In the last game of 1991, he grounded out to second to end the game in a loss vs. Milwaukee.

Nothing against Greenwell, I loved the Gator. I just happened to notice this.

If dannydeej were here, he'd say "Next Quiz!" But I'm sure he's on the Supreme Court or something by now. Still, watch for the next quiz soon.

Congratulations, x.

Wow, greatquestion. Never would have gotten it.
