Fading into Obscurity: The Final Stops of Baseball Legends

Fading into Obscurity: The Final Stops of Baseball Legends

In all sports, famous athletes are often associated with the teams that they were on for most of their careers. That is certainly true in baseball. When one thinks of a legend like Babe Ruth, one immediately also thinks of the New York Yankees. But Ruth did NOT finish his career in New York. Many baseball legends finished their careers in relative obscurity in a city playing for a team that fans don't remember them playing for. Let's put that theory to the test right now. I will provide to you the name of a baseball legend. Your task is to determine with what team they finished their career. Batter up!

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
