The Thursday Thinker: 2017 Jersey Numbers

Can you pick out all of the jersey numbers for the members of the 2017 Milwaukee Brewers?

Jersey numbers are an easy way to identify a player. A large, easy to identify number helps differentiate each of the players in the field. However, we generally only use those when the players are actually playing. When they are not playing, do you remember what jersey number they were wearing?

That’s the topic of today’s quiz. 50 players donned a Brewers uniform in 2017. Can you pick out each of their numbers in 7 minutes?

Today’s quiz is a little different. This time, I am giving you all of the Brewers names, as well as all of the jersey numbers. (That means you don’t have to remember how to spell Kirk Nieuwenhuis.) All you have to do is choose the number for the player. You get 1 guess per player, though the quiz will not end if you get one wrong. Some jersey numbers were worn by two different players, choosing either number should result in a correct answer. If you are not sure of an answer, you can click the next button to skip that player, and if there’s time left over, the quiz will come back to those you skipped.
