Tribe Trivia Round 1: General

As part of the annual Tribe Weekend festivities, I constructed a trivia game, and since there's not much else going on these days with the Tribe slumping and everyone else in off-season, I thought I'd roll out the questions this week just for fun. Here's round one, a General category. No Googling!

Answers can be found here. Take your best guess first!

1) Who hit the home run off of Jose Canseco's head in 1993? (Bonus: what word does Canseco end many of his tweets with)?

2) For what university does Tom Hamilton's son, Nick, play baseball?

3) What color did the Indians phase out of their uniforms in the 2000's?

4) Who is the Tribe fan who has been pummeling his bass drum at games since 1973?

5) Who won the 1995 AL MVP in a criminally unfair vote over Albert Belle?

6) Which of the 8 primary compass directions does a ball struck to CF in Progressive Field travel?

7) Who holds the Tribe's single-season mark for home runs, with 52?

8) What is the name of the Indians' Class-A affiliate in Carolina?

9) What is the Indians-Reds season series nicknamed?

10) Who is the Indians' General Manager?

I'm pretty sure I could get three right here and beat my score of last year. Then again, I'm also currently not approx. 18 beers deep. I know I got four correct (2, 4, 8, 10), took some educated guesses on the others.

1. Candy Maldonado
2. Kent St
3. black
4. John Adams
5. Frank Thomas
6. Northeast (GO PICKERS!)
7. Manny Ramirez
8. Carolina Mudcats
9. The "We-really-want-this-to-be-a-rivalry-but-it-clearly-isn't-because-no-one-gives-a-shit" series
10. Chris Antonetti

Sorry I missed it this year, sure it was a blast as always.
