Quarantine Scoreboard Stumper: Opening Day Edition

As most people reading this know by now, today should have been Opening Day. But rather than lament the cancellation of the game and the uncertain status of the season, let’s look back on some happier times with another edition of Quarantine Scoreboard Stumper.

Some of our fondest Opening Day memories involve big home runs. Who could forget the walk-offs in 2006 and 2011? Or the big three-run blast by a player making his Reds debut just last year? Notice I didn’t mention any specific names here. That’s because you have to guess them!

A total of 66 Reds hitters have homered on Opening Day, dating back to 1904. If you follow us on Twitter, you already know a few. Name as many as you can below!

Just click the green “Play” button in the quiz embedded below and type in your answers. Note: You can type full names or just last names.

Let us know how you did in the comments!


Matt Wilkes got hooked on Reds baseball after attending his first game in Cinergy Field at 6 years old, and he hasn’t looked back. As a kid, he was often found imitating his favorite players — Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, Sean Casey, and Austin Kearns — in the backyard. When he finally went inside, he was leading the Reds to 162-0 seasons in MVP Baseball 2005 or keeping stats for whatever game was on TV. He started writing about baseball in 2014 and has become fascinated by analytics and all the new data in the game. Matt is also a graduate of The Ohio State University and currently lives in Columbus. Follow him on Twitter at @_MattWilkes.
