Trivia Corner #14 - Double Dose Answers

1.) What baseball legend struck out only 369 times in 6,821 at bats during his 13-season major league career?

Yankee great Joe DiMaggio, who hit 361 home runs.

2.) How did "a cup of Joe" become U.S. jargon for a cup of coffee?

It was named for Secretary of the Navy Josephus "Joe" Daniels, who banned "ardent spirits" from the officers' mess in 1914, making coffee the strongest drink offered aboard ship and inspiring the slang reference to coffee as a cup of Joe.

Don't forget to check the standings. Did you pass anybody? Are you where you want to be on the board?
