The Thursday Thinker: Closing Ceremonies

New, 23 comments

This week's Thursday Thinker comes once again from the mind of Infield Fly Rule, and has an Olympic theme.

Since 1984, eighteen players have played baseball in the Olympics for Team USA, and later gone on to play in the Brewer organization. How many can you name in five minutes?

Again, here are the rules: Post your score in the comments, but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there's no prizes.

This one is near impossible, and I'd be surprised to see anyone get half of them, much less all. If you somehow do, though, post your time along with your score in the comments.

This will probably be the last Thinker for a while. It's a fun game and a great timekiller, but I think I'm going to make it into an offseason feature. A week from today we'll have spring training games to talk about, and the regular season is looming on the horizon.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!
