'Jeopardy!' Contestant's Baseball Fail Is A Big Swing And A Miss
We will try to forgive your baseball ignorance, Gavin Borchert.
The “Jeopardy!” contestant committed a pretty glaring error ― at least to fans of our national pastime ― on an episode that aired Wednesday.
The clue indicated that the Cubs’ Hack Wilson had 191 of these in 1930. Borchert answered, “What is home runs?”
Sara-Jane Whitaker chimed in with the correct answer, but Borchert reportedly won the game anyway with a $19,600 total.
So he didn’t completely strike out, after all.
