After getting a lay-up question about Babe Ruth correct, the contestants bombed on:
- All-rise and a 6’7 Yankee referring to Aaron Judge
- Frank Gifford playing for the Giants
- An obvious Mickey Mantle question
- Yogi Berra being 60′ 6″ away from Don Larsen in Monument Park
I didn’t watch the show yesterday, but I think I can say with a high degree of confidence I would’ve cleaned up in this category and those contestants would’ve mopped the floor with me on everything else.
