Apologies, we somehow got the idea that this thread was for stupid questions about anything related to baseball.
Judging by the lack of response to our question above, we evidently broke the Stupid meter.

Now that we're old and actually know a few things, we no longer have much compunction about asking a stupid question. So here goes:
How many different baseball cards (not multiple examples of the same card) have sold for more than $100,000.?
Don't need an exact number, a (ahem) ballpark figure will do.

You forgot the second part of this thread "If you know the answer to one of the questions, just quote it and provide the answer."

Just because someone didn't respond doesn't mean it isn't a valid question, it could very well be that no one reading the post knows the answer.

I think I know the answer to this, but I am unsure. It involves betting purposes....say a team is down 4-3....bottom of the 9th...and the batter hits a GRAND SLAM!!!! Fan rush the field to celebrate (it's a playoff game)....for Vegas purposes, what would the "official" final score be? I believe the score would be 5-4...enough to win, but all other baserunners are disallowed?

I think the best answer is too many to give an accurate number.

How come Joe DiMaggio won 9 world championships and Ted Williams won none?

Trust me, the questions are out there and many have valid answers.

However, to ask such a question can be a self-deprecating admission of stupidity, for someone who looks in the mirror and sees a baseball expert.

Instead of posting a question in this thread, such individuals are motivated to "Google" incessantly to find their own answer to reinforce their potentially flawed belief that they are in fact baseball know-it-alls.

If there is someone out there in the Net54 universe, who doesn't know how to "Google", let's hear from you.

Rather than getting too philosophical about the success or failure of this thread, I shall post another stupid question.

Given the "fact"? that draining water circles the drain in the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere, do Australian baseball batters run to third base instead of first base after hitting the ball?

And the obvious corollary, what if batters could run to either first or third base when batting depending on where the ball was hit? Of course they would have to continue in the same direction to score a run. Think of the possibilities.

Your question is based on a myth. Draining water does not go in the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere. I found this out on an episode of Myth Busters.

Lou Gehrig, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey, Red Ruffing, Tommy Henrich, Phil Rizzuto, Yogi Berra, and Marilyn Mon... err I mean Mickey Mantle.

It's somewhat crazy to think that DiMaggio played with both Lou Gehrig & Mickey Mantle.

Bob Watson scored the 1,000,000 run in mlb history, I remember this. Has the 2,000,000 run been scored?

Default pitchers

When right handed pitchers throw curve balls, do they always curve in the same direction?
