Called up to The Show

From the end of the dead ball era and the rise of Babe to the sweet swing of Griffey and the rise in fastball velocity. We have as many questions as there are unwritten rules. 

From leaders in ERA to batting champs and rookies of the year there is a countless amount of things we can draw inspiration from in the world of baseball. So a sport that has such a wealth of history deserves a quiz of equal stature.
