And the answer to this week’s trivia question is…
Okay, once again, we’ll first start off with the question: Name the Phillies’ pitcher who holds the major league record for the most losses in a season? And the answer is: John Coleman is the Phils pitcher with the most losses in a season, losing 48 of the 81 games that the Phillies, then known as the Quakers, would lose in its first season as a member of the National League. In fact, Coleman is also the major league record holder for the most hits allowed (772), the most runs allowed (510) and the most earned runs allowed (291) in a season, all done in 1883, which was his rookie season in the majors.
Only one person attempted to answer the question and she got it right. So, congratulation to Sue of Rants, Raves, and Random Thoughts for getting the question right once again.
The next trivia question will be asked next week.
