I got 7 right but one of the right answers was based on faulty reasoning so, if I had to show my "proof," it would have only been a 6.

Enjoy as Grilli closes this one down.

I'm so ashamed of my performance that I refuse to post my results.

Back in the olden days some of my teammates occasionally called me "Rulebook Rick" because I had the rules pretty much down pat. Age may bring wisdom, but it sure screws up the memory.

If Stark thinks that the rules of baseball are complex and cover a lot of situations that you'll never see, he ought to take a gander at the Rules of Golf, and follow that up by reading the Decisions.

I posted a reply to this a day or do ago, so I don't know what happened to it!
It was something along the lines of:
I got a miserable 5, but I found the questions as obfuscated as the rules.
