On Wednesday evening, the Toronto Blue Jays announced that they had acquired pitcher Steven Matz from the New York Mets. When Matz takes the field for the first time with the Blue Jays, he would become the 17th Steve in franchise history.

While Matz prefers “Steven”, all of the previous 16 Blue Jays Steves are officially listed as “Steve”. Today’s Sporcle will ask you to guess for each Steve whether their full first name is “Stephen” or “Steven”. Have fun!
