Another day means a fresh Immaculate Grid for baseball fans everywhere to fill out.

Unfortunately, the Minnesota Twins have yet to be prominently featured on the grid but that hasn't stopped fans from taking a crack at flexing their baseball knowledge.

Nor should it. The Immaculate Grid is a great brain exercise to get your day started off on the right foot.

While the Twins haven't been a major subject on the grid yet, there has been a ton of crossover in terms of players who have spent time in Minnesota being potential answers to pairings.

This can really be used one of two ways. Either you did your grid and need to know what you missed, or you're cheating. Either way it fine, we don't judge how you want to approach your grid we're only here for the historical chaos.

Potential Immaculate Grid answers today, June 26th

White Sox and Yankees players

There have been more than a few players to overlap their careers in Chicago and New York, but a few of the more notables ones are:

  • Robin Ventura
  • Steve Sax
  • Tim Raines
  • Melky Cabrera
  • Freddie Garcia

White Sox and Dodgers players

This one is a bit more niche, but there are some answers that will make you go ‘oh, I should have known that’.

  • Joe Kelly
  • Andruw Jones
  • Edwin Jackson
  • Jon Garland
  • Scott Radinsky
  • David Wells

White Sox Hall of Famer

The Chicago White Sox have over 30 players in the Hall of Fame, although not all of them have gone in as White Sox players. That’s not what the Immaculate Grid wants to know, though, which gives you some wiggle room with who to choose here.

  • Frank Thomas
  • Jim Thome
  • Time Raines
  • Harold Baines
  • Carlton Fisk
  • Eddie Collins

Yankees and Brewers players

  • C.C. Sabbathia
  • Mike Hegan
  • Gary Sheffield
  • Richie Sexon

Dodgers and Brewers player

  • Zach Greinke
  • Garry Sheffield
  • Curtis Granderson
  • Tom Candiotti

Brewers Hall of Famer

Here's a bit of a tough one. There are only seven players in the Hall of Fame who spent time with the Brewers and only two of them can be considered long-term players. Robin Yount and Paul Molitor are both remembered as Brewers players, where Hank Aaron is technically an answer but isn't as closely associated with Milwaukee as he is Atlanta.

Dodgers pitcher with 3,000 strikeouts

Every Immaculate Grid there’s an answer that you’re sure is right but it ends up ruining the streak. This one might be that for today. If you put Sandy Koufax or Don Drysdale, you lost a guess.

Max Scherzer is the answer, which feels deeper than we should have had to dig but also obvious when you think about it.

Yankees pitcher with 3,000 strikeouts

Roger Clemens getting his 3,000th strikeout with the New York Yankees was a huge deal at the time it happened, and has been burned into the memories of a certain generation of baseball fan.

Hall of Famer with 3,000 strikeouts

Don’t try too hard with this one. Some of the most famous pitchers in the history of the game belong to the club that owns 3,000 or more strikeouts along with a bust in Cooperstown.

  • Nolan Ryan
  • Randy Johnson
  • Bob Gibson
  • Greg Maddux
  • John Smoltz
