About This Quiz

"Put me in, coach; I'm ready to play." The question is, what position do you feel most drawn to as you take the field?

If you're taking off your jacket and slowly making your way over to the mound, then you're likely someone who would rather see a low-scoring battle between a couple of aces as opposed to a bunch of crooked numbers up on the board. You have likely tried to throw a knuckleball at some point in your life, and you frequently emulate your favorite pitcher's windup when you're involved in a game of catch. Great pitching wins series, and that will always be the position that gets your attention.

Alternatively, if you're constantly analyzing the stats and you have a bunch of fantasy baseball teams going each year, there's a good chance that you might have really bad knees and a catcher's mitt in your possession. You feel drawn to the position that is basically a manager on the field, the player who rallies the team and knows just how to talk to each of the personalities on the staff.

Perhaps you're more of a pure hitter, someone who is a bit bored by the intricacies of the game and just wants to take a massive cut at a fastball out over the plate. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, maybe you're an incredible athletic genius who can pull off highlight reel plays with your feet and your arm.

Either way, it won't be long before we've got your spot on the diamond all figured out.

Batter's up! Let's play ball!
