No, I don't understand why the baseball questions were twelve years old

Last night was a great night for everyone as far as trivia is concerned. It was great for us, because we won. It's great for you, dear readers, because we still managed to miss a solid selection of questions. As usual, I cannot vouch for the veracity of the answers given to us, but we believed them.

1) What Arab nation has the highest percentage of Christian citizens?
2) Who hit a line-drive single in his first at-bat of the 1996 season, becoming the first Red Sox pitcher to get a base hit in 24 years?
3) Who was the winningest manager in Major League Baseball history winningest active manager in baseball when he retired in 1996?
4) What recording artist was the top-selling artist of the 1970's, according to Billboard?
5) Of flyweight, bantamweight, or featherweight, which is the heaviest weight class?
6) What mythical beast has the head of a man, the body of a lion, and the tail and feet of a dragon?

1. Lebanon
2. Roger Clemens
3. Tommy Lasorda. Lasorda, by the way, was only the winningest active manager for one year, because Sparky Anderson retired in 1995. I didn't like this question much, because you really have to know exactly when both men retired.
4. Elton John
5. Featherweight. Who knew?
6. a manticore
