Football and basketball seasons are over so it's time to move on to ... baseball trivia?

WSU Athletic Communications

We're nearing the end point of the 2013-14 Monday Morning Trivia Contest, but wrapping things up will have to wait at least another week. I think I've asked about every depressing basketball question I possibly can so today were going to mix things up with a little baseball trivia.

The Cougars wrapped up a week on the road and are playing much better than they were earlier in the season. They nearly capped the tremendous road stretch by taking a three-game series from UCLA, but the Bruins scored twice in the bottom of the 10th to win. With the Cougars playing better, now seems like a good idea to test your WSU baseball history.

Q1: Who was the last Cougar to pitch in a MLB game?

Q2: Who was the last Cougar to record a hit in a MLB game?

Q3: Who was the last Cougar to be named a first-team All-American?

Q4: WSU has a long history in baseball, where did the Cougars rank in all-time victories at the start of the season?
