Says you're from Chicago when you were actually at the Kerry Wood game I was there I was on the right field bleachers. Couple high school buddies to -- in -- way to admit that was a school day. Couple high school -- so what does that mean. I always -- class ago. Did scholastic -- that the parent's approval well I'm glad he didn't pitch anything you get to our game showed today we appreciate that. Let's get out the game but bases are empty what are you wanna do this and I'll settle for a single start the single get somebody on base sounds a good idea what he would David's question it was the Cubs winning its foreign born pitcher. Larry Cochrane Ryan Dempster Fergie Jenkins or Carlos Zambrano -- Fergie Jenkins. See Fergie Jenkins is correct the ever runner aboard to start the second anybody. Here also from Chicago Greg manage your favorite player out what's your favorite game that -- -- -- a Cubs fan. But 2003. National League division series -- Cubs vs Braves the first game at Wrigley where Mark Prior was up against Greg Maddux and any cub fan knows it's always terrific to sit in the bleachers but that night was especially. Electric all right -- 31 lead what are you wanna do to start in. Double seemed to have won't seem to be working so tomorrow I'll keep it going. Keep it going tried for another double here might question the second inning which of these current Cubs was -- 38 round draft pick. Tony can't Hannah Steve -- manager Casey Coleman or Randy Wells. -- 38 round draft pick out tough question. I'm they have the guess here but something in the back my mind this time the eight Toney camp and a it was Randy Wells who of course was a catcher. Early on in his career I -- David you have a man on base and what he wanted to go to double. Looking free double double put runners second and third which player the Cubs received from the White Sox for Jon Garland. Scott -- -- also known as Stevie iron depending how you -- answer that Tom Gordon Bob Howry or Matt archer -- that practioner. Matt -- final answer excellent. Archer is correct runners at second and third now for you we go back to money with the bases antibody 31 lead in the game. What do you like. I'm gonna stick with -- -- sticking with a double all right here's another to bag question for you. Who was the first Cubs player born in the 1980s. To make his Major League debut Sergio MITRE Mark Prior. Todd Wellemeyer or Carlos of -- Wow so someone born in 1981. Cut out player born in the eighties now be. 32. Okay. Lots of thinking about that one and it paid off because it is easy Carlos Zambrano in the answered. So another honor board you have a man at second we go back to David who had men at second and third and he's. Knocking on the door scored some runs here what do you like school a double. Look at for double that would drive in two and tie up the game which of these teams never defeated the Cubs. He's a World Series athletics Indians Red Sox or Tigers. Never defeated the Cubs in a World Series. Still have your pinch hitter you want you don't with the Indians yeah. And that is correct you've tied the game with a two run double. All of a sudden it's three to three in the second game we go back over to Monte money. Here's what you have men at second base right now. Third swing any any. What are you thinking about a minute with a triple. Triple okay off the path here -- -- gonna say another double he's going for the three dagger which Cubs player. Is one of only four national leaguer to ever hit twenty doubles triples and homers in his season. -- -- Ryan Sandberg wildfire Schulte or hiding Zimmerman. That's not easy. Maybe your pinch hitter notes. Okay let's call Mount Holly you're gonna go for the sure Colin helper go what are your pinch hitter what did you bring along and it's a friend of the friend bill. Okay so you're going with bill let's find out what bill has to say about this go ahead and asking the question. Bill. Which Cubs player is one of only four national leaguers. To ever hit twenty doubles. And triples and homers in a season. They vick's side -- B Ryan Sandberg. See wildfire Schulte. -- the highly Zimmerman the first thought they began to get rid of -- because if you ever had point triples and a sad because I thought as well. I do know -- in shelty. Hit a lot of triples. -- there's a coin -- puts -- out so did he help you out or not. IE I think it is between sire in Schulte and Schulte was a slightly more high profile player. And for that reason alone. I'm gonna go with C wildfire Schulte. You are correct. 1811 wildfire Schulte and so that is a big one now four runs for you. Three for David we go back to David your final swing now all of the second inning. What do you like double. A double. -- your question for the double kids needed. What is the Cubs double a affiliate right now Daytona Cubs Iowa Cubs Peoria Chiefs where Tennessee smoky it's. Tom. Double A farm system team -- Tennessee smoking's. Tennessee smoky -- is correct. You tied the game with a double that scores a run it's four -- four but. Money has his final question of any and a man over at third base money I've got to go with a single. Just a single score the -- trying to take the lead again all right money single. This should be easy for him. What number did Sammy Sosa Wear it 20/20 125 or 32. You're trying to -- them running with the flag in the outfield I -- this is for the fans and his mother. Wow it's either 21 or 32. If you get this one wrong you're never going to live it down.
