Think you can you best my test ?


I’ve always enjoyed reading about history (when I have time). Lately I’ve been on a baseballHistoryBuff.jpg history kick. If you read this blog you know every now and then I pop in a few trivia teasers.

Today I’m going to kick it up a few notches. I’ts going to to be a little more challenging. If you can nail this, there will be a sweet reward for your hard work.

This baseball was autographed in front of me, for me, by Ryan.

 I’ll throw in a cube too, because I’m cool like that.
