Sporting Quiz

There's one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends. What is it?

There are eight ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit. Name them.


  1. boxing? arm wrestling?

    1) walk
    2) hit by pitch
    3) error
    4) fielder's choice
    5) strike three - passed ball
    6) fielder interference
    7) catcher interference
    8) umpire interference

    I'm not sure if all three different types of interference were what you were looking for there. Maybe "pinch-running" could be one, but the original batter would still have to reach on one of the other ways...

  2. I was thinking of boxing. I have no idea about arm wrestling, but can't you tell who's in the lead based on where the arms are positioned? Fencing is scored as you go along, right? There are points that are declared? I've never watched a match, so I'm not going to say one way or another.

    Abe, I was thinking of:
    hit by pitch
    defensive interference
    fielders choice
    dropped third strike
    pinch runner

  3. 9) if the player is real smooth, he can get to first base with one of the fans...

  4. 1.Base on balls/walk.
    2.Hit by pitch.
    4.Fielder's choice.
    5.Catcher interference.
    6.Called third strike not caught.
    7.Batted ball hits an umpire or runner before.
    contact with a fielder.
    8. Fielder's choice
    And the most common one is Base on balls/walk.
