About This Quiz
From its inception, Major League Baseball has seen its fair share of players. Some stand out, others don't. Then you have those players who become absolute legends. You have Jackie Robinson, the first African American professional baseball player. Then you have Babe Ruth, and more recent ones like Derek Jeter and current players like Mike Trout. These players stand out not only for their performance on the field, but also what they do off the field. Of course some players have issues off the field, and back in the day, community outreach wasn't as prevalent or expected of professional athletes as it is today.
But a legend is a legend no matter how you look at it. How many home runs a player hits, how many strike outs a pitcher has, how many wins a coach has, and more all lead to someone becoming a legend. You probably feel like you know some of these players if you are a loyal and life-long fan. Maybe that's because one of these legends is your spirit animal. A spirit animal is a person or animal that you just feel is you in another form. Take this quiz and we'll guess which MLB legend is your spirit animal!
