You try to score once whereas most runs the end of three innings. Moves on that second round I can ask for single double triple or home run question singles -- easy. Home runs are hard depends on how you wanna play the game. During the game he can also use two helpers -- can ask you work the count presented by eighteenth tee that means to incorrect answers are removed from your choices. Can also use a pinch hitter a pinch hitter and designated friend you can call on to help you answer the tough question. Can only use each helper once per game. And you cannot use your helpers on a home run value question final game of the first round let's play ball erratic. Tom we're gonna start with you nobody's on base obviously how you wanna start. School the single start -- single keep it easy Tom want to single in his first question is. In what country was many -- also born in Cuba Dominican Republic Mexico or animal. -- gonna go with. They Cuba. He is from Cuba many -- also correct so you have a single and a man over first base over to Tony. Tony how do you wanna start the game I listen to try single get it started all right Tony here's your question should be easy who was the first White Sox pitcher. They hit a home run since interleague play began in 1997. Mark -- John Danks Jon Garland or Javier Vazquez. Summer had the only one that I know had a homer on would be girls in Milwaukee. -- -- there. It is not mark early it's Jon Garland that was a little bit of -- -- single questionnaire so we go back to Tom and Tom you have a runner at first base. Let's go a double go with a double trying -- runners at second and third periods Tom's question. Whom did Kenny Williams replaced as general manager of the White Sox was that Ken the hawk Harrelson was at Roland even with the Larry times or Ron -- Wasn't the -- We go to UD. It was. Who was frank Thomas's most frequent home run victim which pitcher Mike Mussina. Kenny Rogers Tim Wakefield or David Wells. I would be. Personal Mike Mussina. Yeah Iraq Mike Mussina a few times the tour age is correct so a double for you you are. At least on the base -- now back over to Tom runners at second and third and your third swing of the first inning. Think another double. Tried other double this would drive in the first two runs of the game who hit the most career home runs and old Comiskey Park. Harold Baines Carlton Fisk felt bill Melton nor many -- -- That's so fun when. Is tricky you have and helpers if you wanna use. I don't think it was bill Melton. I don't think it's Harold -- either and look on this be. Carlton Fisk is correct -- you have finally score. It's a two nothing ballgame Tony though you have a runner at second so certainly you can score here few -- that the -- -- right what eagle on four. Most of triple going -- triple would lead runner at third and score a run. Tony -- hold the White Sox career record for pinch hits smoky Burgess Jerry Hairston Eddie Murphy or Walt Williams. I'm gonna go and smoke emerges there. Smokey Burgess is incorrect it is Jerry Hairston he is the answer out next -- -- stayed at second you still have another chance to drive men don't. Tom runner at second any two nothing lead. -- double Luke another double all right two Bagger. Here is question number four your final question of this any. Which of these teams didn't take Allen not play for and did not play for one of these teams the athletics the Cardinals the Dodgers and reds. Played for three of whom he didn't play for one of them. This is a tough question is just. I'm gonna go with. I'm gonna say that he did not play it for the Dodgers. He did play the Dodgers he did not play for the Cincinnati -- he was the correct answer. So really the man at second we go back over to Tony who has a runner second of his own. But no score right now what are you wanna try for I'm Paterno tried double drive in that first -- seems like a good idea to me. Who was the first White Sox pitcher. To win -- interleague game Wilson Alvarez Jason Bere Danny Darwin or Bobby howry. This I have no idea what could use -- here helpers maybe. Made me I don't think you know -- Well you can work he can work the count to when you can eliminate two of those answers or just. My take shots that are as my heart for later okay I'm in a hole from sand. Bob Howry Bob Howry is incorrect Wilson -- reds is the correct answer there. So that's gonna do it for the first inning -- to nothing. Tom over Tony right now we have two more innings to play eight more questions each that's gonna do it for that.
