Welcome back to the batter's box let's take a moment to get to know our contestants we -- -- anyone not being named Julie. Says here -- south side Chicago and Juli wants the chance to steal what are you talking about steal what. I just I asked if we're allowed to steal the question they got -- -- -- -- I had a -- out and they are gonna have to have the authorities around you wanna -- looking to -- a point or killed but you're a writer political satire and yet. That's right I've right now I write a blog called the -- it looks now competitive like democracy and apocalypse. Most together. And -- so. Writing I regulate a little bit about sports as loud sound. Right blitzing if it helps you out I mean they'll say -- get the mind working -- is blowing -- -- right are actually what I wanna do bases empty in the second inning. Let's go where it's. Thing now. A single alright to be easy when -- here's a question who was the World Series MVP in 2005. Jose Contreras and Joe Crede. Jermaine Dye or Paul Konerko that is seen -- guy. That is -- Jermaine -- so there's a runner aboard for -- just like the first inning first man on base go back to Tony and Tony. Northside Chicago what does Sox fans how does that work out. Born in north side you know then removed there's outside moved back to the north side. Okay anything you skip teams back and forth you always been -- the whole time and Chicago Primakov sucks then okay all right any caught a foul ball. Babies sleeping what is this all. My daughter went to to my wife for Mother's Day to -- Sox -- my daughter was sleeping in my arm and a foul ball came away some guys are Biden and the balls -- kind of -- behind again. So I walked over there must be can be that it will be honored at the very tricky all right you have a one nothing lead -- wanna start out the second inning let's go to double double all right. Two -- question. For Tony and here it is which team received a forfeit victory against the White Sox. On the Disco demolition date July 12 1979. Angels Indians and Rangers or Tigers. -- I was going eight and Angels the Angels is incorrect he Staal gave the Tigers. Can forfeit win that day. Right back to Julie Julie has a runner at first base still trying to get her first round you're only down one and nothing so what are you wanna do here. Come public and -- well. A triple all right at triple would drive in that Ron let's see what happens. Which of these four hall of famers did Harold Baines not homer off as a rookie in 1980. Dennis Tankersley Fergie Jenkins Jim Palmer or Gaylord Perry don't forget he got helpers here. Re examining guiding used one of those help where you are -- -- a -- what would you like to do I like to. So if I pinch hit there gonna go with your pinch hitter. Sure she's going to the dugout and bringing in a pinch hitter who did you bring with you here I -- my dad. Who is also like a big Sox -- so hopefully Laviolette coming out here dad's been a Sox fan for awhile right let's see what he has to say. Which of these far hall of famers did Harold Baines is not homer off as a rookie in 1980. Agent Dennis actors -- B Fergie Jenkins CGM Paul Meyer and he Gaylord Perry. Why don't I don't really know that. Any any heating up as but I would say. That hasn't always say Gaylord Perry and -- Gaylord Perry hunt and listen to your father dad knows best though it. Get the best Father's Day present this year it is not -- Perry he's -- Dennis Tankersley is the correct answer so. Right -- -- still stays at first base he used up one of your helpers we go back over to Tony Tony is nobody on base what he wanted it around the school and a double again. Double -- -- go here's a question for the two Bagger which player won the most gold gloves while with the White Sox. -- every CO Nellie fox charm -- war Iraq and Robin Ventura. Mean. That's a tough double question that is a pretty good because. Thanks and go and I've beaten only boxer. Won't -- in -- -- -- -- like it took Nellie fox is incorrect is Louis actually CL. Gay was the correcting its yourself still nobody on base but -- one nothing lead in the game. Back over to Juli that runner at first base still you for your first run and holing -- get that run home I will go on. I -- vote another trip and I -- that run home looking for a triple tried again the last it was a really tough question. Which of these teams with Harry -- not a broadcaster for Royals. Hayes. Browns or Cardinals. You still have a helper left if you wanna use that you can of course. Worked the count. And I really don't wanna work the count on this and yeah. Taking that thing go. Know the answer is a loss Royals but your runner's amazing first base and eleven other swing here. In the second game we go back over to Tony and his bases are empty. Most of that screwed up and all the dove up the double a single just getting them here let's simplify things -- Which White Sox player won the American League rookie of the year in 1983 Ozzie Guillen LaMarr Hoyt Ron kill or Mike squires. Go to little rousing. You're going without -- now I am what is Ryan keys yet scandal although -- That's right in 1983. So all. That's -- missed opportunity for Tony right there let's go back over to Juli that runners sells and -- first base he's lonely over there. What are you gonna do I have think. Go for the chip RPI can break that up owing to let me see if the third time's the charm for Juli on the triples who -- the 1959. Go go White Sox in home runs. Ted Kaczynski. Jim Landis sure Lawler or else mixed. -- an okay Ted Krzyzewski final answer yes Ted Kaczynski. That guys can stay at first base for the rest of his slices. T shirt lollar is the correct answer so. Scoreless after two innings but we go back over to Tony. He's gotten off the market right now in my golf swing for the fences I suppose you might as well -- all right let's give a home run question to Tony it's a one nothing game. The pictures tools so far the White Sox hit three home runs total of the team in 190 wait which of these players did not hit one. James Donahue fielder Jones -- is well or Ed Walsh. I have got the song went on -- man here in this era. The only. Tony grab some cash to swing and a miss unfortunately. As hawk would say grab some -- so. You missed it but you still have that one up the lead right now the pitcher's duel is going to you but obviously anybody can win this game it's one. If not it's.
