Take this Orioles quiz

Let's have some fun today with a pop quiz. OK, this is not School of Steve, but it still could be fun. I'll throw out 10 questions. To me, a few are somewhat easy, but most are not.

I don't provide any multiple answer questions, so you have to come up with the answer on your own.

If you don't know the answers, don't fret. I know these answers due to researching over 60 players heading into spring training. I made a bunch of notes and these questions came out of that research.

As a hint, the answers are mostly players on the 40-man roster, except where noted.

Later today, I'll post the answers.

2. This O's pitcher once threw a seven-inning no-hitter in the South Atlantic League.

3. This Oriole saw a career-best 4.0 pitches per plate appearance in 2019.

4. This Oriole was signed by another organization for $2.2 million as an international amateur.

5. This Oriole was once a first-round draft pick out of the University of Florida.

6. In his wins last year, this Orioles pitcher allowed just one homer over 25 1/3 innings.

7. This Oriole, a non-roster spring invitee, was drafted in the sixth round by the Boston Red Sox out of high school, but did not sign.

8. This pitcher on the O's farm, another spring non-roster invitee, led a college conference in strikeouts in 2017.

9. This O's pitcher was a Gold Glove finalist since the 2016 season.

10. This Oriole once won a batting title with Single-A Delmarva.

Have fun with this. Remember, as always, throw out any O's topics or questions in the comments section that may have nothing to do with this quiz. You don't have to answer a single question.

The answers: OK, this was really too hard. Note to self - keep this in mind for next time. The answers are below.

1. Hyde managed Hunter Harvey's brother, Kris, in 2006 at Greensboro of the South Atlantic League.

2. John Means for Delmarva in 2015.

3. Trey Mancini.

4. That was the bonus for Venezuelan native Renato Núñez from Oakland in July 2010.

5. Richie Martin was the Florida Gator taken No. 20 overall by Oakland in 2015.

6. Asher Wojciechowski.

7. It was Branden Kline who was taken in that round in 2009 out of Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Md. He didn't sign and went on to the University of Virginia.

9. Alex Cobb in 2017.

10. Chance Sisco did that by hitting .340 in 2014.
