So Young, So Strong, So Too Soon Gone

Trivia Quiz This quiz centers around ten baseball players who passed on during the height of their careers. Some were Hall of Famers, some were just good players that were dealt a cruel blow. The real tragedy was not just that their careers were cut short, but that their careers as fathers and husbands. were cut too short as well. Leaving behind a career as a player is one thing, but to leave behind a wife and kids, nothing compares. Good luck and may all these men RIP.

I bet my brother J D would have aced this quiz. He's a walking baseball encyclopedia. I am obviously not.

Your quiz is remarkable! Thank you for showing such respect for these deceased athletes. One item - it says Thurmon Munson died in 1959 - I am certain it was several decades later. Can you edit the question to remove the typo?
Kind regards - Happy New Year
