The last game middle Kaminsky and 1990. I was only fourteen months old but. My mom was able to fit into the turns out for a free ticket free ticket even first game ever in your favorite player is who. Frank Thomas absolutely Frank Thomas that fear that might mean it's for most of our White Sox contestants are right you trailed two to one.

The second inning meanwhile work it takes some time to meet Mike he still -- the 21 lead Mike your former Rogers park when was your first White Sox game. 1980. 1988. And now before he was born a lot of pressure of the end now I got -- -- and they write and how they made a point. Yeah well I went. Yeah I was thirteen and get. We went in our baseball uniforms and -- uniforms on -- league uniforms. And Babe Ruth. And I walked around the how you -- you're dressed as Babe Ruth you don't annoy everybody K okay I was a little bit easier. Thanks for not Wear the uniform today -- we really appreciate it. You don't want to. You have the second in your first to that or would you like. And I don't have anybody on that nobody on base on the bases -- -- Gone for single by your question is to start off the second inning bases empty. Who's the oldest player in White Sox history to get hit -- aptly Carlton -- many -- so or Omar Vizquel. -- See don't have many now so. That is correct Tebow lead off this inning with a single everybody had to man aboard we go back to -- With your second question of the second inning what would you like wedge driver not a single track for another single another easy question hopefully Burnett. Who hold the White Sox single season record for home runs Albert -- Jermaine Dye Frank Thomas or Jim Thome. -- -- -- The Albert -- is. Correct so I have to -- first and second. We go back to Mike Mike you have a runner at first base and you have the lead to one what would you like. I am going to try for a double try for a double like to move things along a little bit all right. Little bit our question who was the first White Sox player to homer. Any all star game was that many you know so was it nags Magglio Ordonez Al Simmons or Frank Thomas. Gotta go with a bigger. So now you have a runner at second and third and you've got something moving here in his second any. Back over and what would you like and try to get both runners and with a triple try for a triple and trying to take the lead in his game here is -- question. Which of these matters was not part of the first set of back to back to back home runs in White Sox history Harold Baines Carlton Fisk. Greg Rusedski. Or Tom mature. -- like -- a -- on this one you would like to use a helper. All right so you're going here pinch hitter on this one correct correct. She brought a friend along and I tell us about your friend and then go ahead and answer the question. Well she brought me in my first game okay my mom all right and your mom's a White Sox made -- -- take it absolutely -- mom welcome aboard and here's the question. Paramount which one of these bad -- was not part of the first set of back to back to back home runs and White Sox history Harold Baines Carlton Fisk. Greg Gusinsky or Tom the chart. First of all I'm not confident at all and that's I'm trying to think back into what year is they've played. I know -- short did. Did that game with Hough in Tampa they had a -- to get I don't remember him mentioning that he was ever in that series. And so. My instinct says to eliminate him. But my gut says to eliminate -- in -- Sorry I couldn't help more. All right see your mom's given you a little advice she -- killer help out of bill Melton can't come -- for post game live one day. Here are your choices pains -- was his keep it short. -- dig a little bit of advice what do you think can turn it down. And I think I'm gonna go in deep Tom pitcher work. T topic short his incorrect the answer was Harold. -- Harold Baines is the correct answer. Mike's looking at that say I'm glad that wasn't my question so you leave runners at first and second for now Mike his runners at second and third in a chance to. Add to his lead here what would you like iron where old. Go for a single to -- for this single all right. Saying it would drive in one and leave another runner at third which of these pitchers. Did not throw a perfect game with the White Sox Mark -- Philip Humber Billy pierce or Charlie Robertson. See. You're going with seat Billy pierce. And Billy pierce is correct that dry runs and now you had 8321. Lead. And two men aboard we go back to -- your final question of this any you've got runners at first and second if you wanna drive both in. You need at least double here to get one of -- Red I think -- gonna try for no triple gonna try for another triple driving to. And here is your question -- triples are not easy and who is the only White Sox player to hit four home runs in a game. It's meet Jolley written Radcliffe. Had series or Roy see her goal. In after -- Shot in the dark and have fun OK you gotta roll the dice and it was absolutely pick and pick my favorite man. I think I'll go with deep Roy receivers. He Roy receivers as well you're going -- it yes. It is packed series head series -- you leave two aborted first and second. I missed opportunity there we go back to Mike you have runners at. First and third your final swing of the second inning what would you like I went home. Corporate double. Going for the double. Your question -- and a double here of course would drive in Iraq. Who was the last player manager in White Sox history nodding your head I think he might know this one. Larry Doby Jimmy dykes contest and you're at least Yankee. See. You're going to see Don -- that is your final answer. And that is corrected drive in a run and it gives you want more on the board as talks said. Put it on the 48 is Ford wanted my with the lead after 280 we'll see what happens. For more plate appearances ago guys would come right back. -- more batter's box after that.
