Choose an answer from the three choices offered after each question and then "Check Your Answer" at the end of the quiz.

Birth: October 19, 1876, Nyesville, Indiana

Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown, nicknamed "Three Finger" or "Miner", was an American Major League Baseball pitcher at the turn of the 20th century. 

Due to a farm-machinery accident in his youth, Brown lost parts of two fingers on his right hand and eventually acquired his nickname as a result. Overcoming this handicap and turning it to his advantage, he became one of the elite pitchers of his era.

Death: February 14, 1948 (aged 71), Terre Haute, Indiana

In his later years, Brown was plagued by diabetes and then by the effects of a stroke. 

He died in 1948, and news of his passing reminded sportswriters of his past achievements. He was selected posthumously to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.
