Quiz: Hall of Famers who played for the Padres

Jim McIsaac

This is probably - no, scratch that - this is definitely the easiest quiz I've made so far. It's straightforward, no trick answers or any garbage like that. All you have to do is name the nine players enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame who at one point played for the major league iteration of the San Diego Padres. This means no Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, or anyone else who played for the old Pacific Coast League Padres. It also means no Jerry Coleman or anyone related to the franchise who didn't suit up (Suit up!) as a player with the team.

This list will grow to at least ten, probably eleven, players by next year. There are four former Friars included on this year's Hall of Fame ballot this year. Greg Maddux is a lock to make it and Mike Piazza should. Fred McGriff will fall short once again but stay on the ballot, but the fourth eligible player most definitely will not. I'm going to give you a moment to swallow any beverage you may have just taken a sip of, because this is hilarious.



It's Shawn Estes.

Okay, now that we've all had a good laugh, it's time to get down to business. You know the drill. Last names only are acceptable. You can type in full names but you'd just be wasting your time. And you probably don't want to do that because every second counts since the time allotted is only two minutes. I almost made it three minutes, but that would have eliminated the only degree of difficulty this cakewalk has. In the case that you should need any hints for some reason, I have arranged the names in alphabetical order, along with the positions they played.

After you finish up, be sure to enter your score in the poll. This is usually the point where I stress to use spoiler bars in your comments, but I don't think that's really going to be an issue since just about everyone is going to ace it.
