The answer is Jimmy Piersall, who also circled the bases facing backwards after hitting his 100th career home run while with the Mets. He only played forty games for the Mets in 1963, and was promptly traded.
Captain Canuck comes through again, and takes a commanding lead, but more than one person has had six hits in a game. Sorry, but No Soup For You! You are right, though. He was nuts! He attacked teammates and umps and spanked a teammate's son!
Making a late charge is Night Owl, who gets both the regulation question and the Extra Credit question for an extra 2 points!
In an interesting development, the only other answer from both Sooz and Slette is Al Gionfriddo. I can't verify that he did catch one behind the monuments, though. Sorry.
The standings going into the last question are:
8 - Captain Canuck
5 - Night Owl
4 - Cardboard Addiction
2 - dayf
1 - White Sox Cards, deal, Flash, MMayes, jacobmrley, PAB, GCRL
OK, this last one is for all the marbles. I need to make this a tough one, and I'll add an Extra Credit question, so the total value will be 5 points for this one.
Which major league pitcher wrote a song for Bruce Sutter's wedding in 1975? (3 points)
This pitcher is also the source of a "curse" on a major league club. Which team is that? (2 points)
Confused? Well, as this is Final Jeopardy, and Captain Canuck is out ahead by more than 2 points, I have to make this one hard and give everyone a chance. Good Luck!
