Spring Training games start Saturday. We've already covered the TV schedule Thursday and today we're going to test your Astros knowledge. Sporcle has put together a quiz asking if you can name the entire 2012 Houston Astros Spring Training roster.
You'll have six minutes to try and get all 63 names on the Astros roster. It's tougher than you might think, under pressure from the clock I missed some pretty obvious names while getting some non-obvious ones.
I have two tips for you in taking this quiz. First, It only requires last names so no need to worry about first names. Second, I'm going to give you Delino DeShields Jr.; DeShields won't work, but Jr. will.
Don't feel bad if you don't get a high score on the quiz, I only got slightly over half the names. I missed some obvious names while getting some of the non-obvious names. I blame the early morning, the clock and the government.
