BONUS DAY - 2 QUESTIONS

Q1:
 What team moved to D.C. to become the Washington Nationals in 2005?

A: The Montreal Expos

The end of the legal fight to keep the Expos in Montreal came on November 15, when arbitrators struck down a lawsuit by the former team owners against MLB and former majority owner Jeffrey Loria. The MLB franchise owners approved the move to Washington in a 28-1 vote on December 3. Baltimore Orioles owner Peter Angelos cast the sole "nay" vote, resenting the franchise's relocation and intrusion into the Baltimore/D.C. market.

Q2: 
What 1929 feat did Lee Richmond perform in a Major League Baseball first?

A) He pitched a perfect game.
B) He had an unassisted triple play.
C) He hit a grand slam.
D) He stole home.
 
A: He pitched a perfect game. Richmond struck out five, allowed only three balls to be hit out of the infield, and, remarkably, got one of his 27 outs when the right fielder threw the batter out at first base.
