So Jean Joachim and I were recently chatting–us both being baseball romance authors, as you know–about the World Series coming up and doing some posts to go along with it. Since one of the key scenes in CALLING IT (book #1 in my Calling It series) takes place during an epic Trivia Night bout at the local bar and grille, I am happy to follow up Jean’s post last night with some Trivia of my own.

This happens to be a personal favorite of mine, for reasons that I’ll elaborate on in my Friday night post. But for now, here goes: how many teams have come back to win the World Series after being down 0-3 in the League Championship Series?

And as long as we’re at it: how many times has the winner of the World Series been decided in the 7th game?

Let’s do one more, this one being the trivia question that seals Dorie’s fate in CALLING IT:

“This player led the Yankees in RBIs in every season from 1949-1955. Name the player and, as a bonus, name his claim to fame from the 1956 World Series.”

I’ll post the answers on Friday. In the meantime, check out Jean’s post from last night at http://jeanjoachim.blogspot.com. And she’ll be posting round 3 of trivia tomorrow night.

    Mickey Mantle?? And being chosen series MVP?? Just a wild guess. Thanks for doing this with me, Jen.

    • Ah, that is an excellent guess–and, in fact, exactly what Nate Hawkins hoped Dorie would say. But…no.

      I’ll give the answer in my next post. 🙂

      Also, you’re very welcome! I’m really enjoying myself!

    Yogi Berra, he caught Don Larsen’s perfect game.
