Sporcle Friday: Position players for the 2016 Tacoma Rainiers

New, 11 comments

Can you name all 28 position players who had at least one PA for the Tacoma Rainiers in 2016?

This clearly isn't from '16 but there weren't any Tacoma Rainiers pictures in the editor and I will take any excuse to use an image of Ichiro.

Unless a bunch of crazy things happen over the last 22 games of the MLB season, the Seattle Mariners will not be playing in the playoffs this season. Disappointing. However, a team that is currently playing in the playoffs is the Tacoma Rainiers! The Rainiers have had a pretty great season so I figured I'd show them some love in today's Sporcle.

Your task is simple. Name each of the 28 position players who recorded at least one plate appearance for Tacoma this season. If you're not a big fan of minor league baseball, don't worry! I reckon you should should still be able to get more than half of these. Also maybe reconsider becoming a fan of minor league baseball in 2017. It's fun! And making the trip down to Cheney Stadium to catch a ballgame is a great way to spend a summer evening/weekday.

I opted to use headshots of each player to help you guys out, so this quiz isn't embeddable. You'll have to CLICK HERE to go to the quiz.

Good luck!
