I got seven out of 10, missing Nos. 5, 7, and 8. But that is admittedly with some educated guessing on a few, rather than knowing for sure the exact rule.

What's amazing is the wide range of scores for some of the players, coaches and ESPN analysts, which you can see here:

    Number of correct answers on our 10-question quiz:


    Brad Ziegler (D-backs), 10
    David Ross (Red Sox), 9
    J.J. Putz (D-backs), 8
    Andrew Bailey (Red Sox), 8
    Justin Morneau (Twins), 7
    J.J. Hardy (Orioles), 7
    Evan Longoria (Rays), 6
    Daniel Hudson (D-backs), 6
    Glen Perkins (Twins), 5
    Chad Durbin, 5
    Jayson Werth (Nationals), 5
    Adam Dunn (White Sox), 4
    Jimmy Rollins (Phillies), 4
    Greg Burke (Mets), 4
    Jeremy Guthrie (Royals), 4
    Elliot Johnson (Royals), 4
    Skip Schumaker (Dodgers), 4
    Josh Collmenter (D-backs), 4
    Michael Young (Phillies), 3
    Sam Fuld (Rays), 3


    John Farrell (Red Sox), 9
    Bob Geren (Mets), 8
    Terry Steinbach (Twins), 6
    Tom Foley (Rays), 5
    Derek Shelton (Rays), 5


    Dave Schoenfield (, 7
    Jayson Stark (, 6
    Tim Kurkjian (ESPN), 5
    Doug Glanville (ESPN), 5
    Dan Gladden (Twins), 4
    Jerry Crasnick (, 3
    Aaron Boone (ESPN), 1

I would have really loved to see an umpire or ex-umpire participate, but I have to believe ESPN would have difficult time convincing any to do so. So how'd you do?
