Phillies Trivia Winners

Now that the Phillies season has ended (prematurely), it’s time to tabulate the winners of our Phillies Trivia Challenge.

Drum roll please…

Our winner only answered one question incorrectly and that was a prediction that the Phillies would win the World Series. We all know what happened with that.

Only one other trivia taker came close to matching Christy Schnyer‘s performance. Becky Wrentzel and Dan Ulrich each answered only one question wrong and several had only two answers incorrect.

Those of you who follow this blog regularly might recognize Christy from the Blog Olympics we did earlier this year. She was one of two winners in that. The trivia questions and answers are below.
