Oyez Baseball

Oyez Baseball is an internet game intended to increase knowledge of the Supreme Court through baseball connections. For example here is the info provided if you correctly make the connection between Cal Ripken Jr. and Justice William O. Douglas.
S, b. 1960. These players were iron-men of their respective games. Douglas served for more years than any other justice, sitting on the bench from 1939-1975. Put another way, his tenure overlapped the presidencies of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. Ripken set what may be an unbreakable record by playing in 2,632 consecutive games, shattering Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130. In the age of free agency, Ripken's accomplishment is even more unlikely given that he played his entire twenty-year career for one team, the Baltimore Orioles.
