Today is Tuesday. "Tuesday" begins with a "T". "Trivia" also begins with a "T". It is an alliteration too good to pass up. Plus, Trivia is fun. So now, let's test your knowledge (or at least your ability to Google search).
Last month I challenged you with this Birdo:
Many of you correctly identified the player in question as...
Matt Carpenter after hitting a leadoff triple against Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 of the 2013 NLDS.
Congrats to all who answered correctly!
Now for today’s challenge...
Who is this?
- His career postseason ERA is .69 (no really, it is)
- He has posted consecutive 45-save seasons
- He is the Cardinals single season saves leader
This one might be tough, but do you know when, where, and following what this photo above was taken?
Spoiler-tag your answers!
