If you are a baseball fan, Sunday nights used to present few options. With only one game on ESPN every Sunday night, if the Sox weren’t playing you were out of luck because no one should have to listen to Joe Morgan unless they absolutely have to.
For the next fifteen weeks (July 18 through October 3) your luck has changed because new episodes of The Batter’s Box (the award winning Sox themed trivia show) will be airing on NESN Sunday nights at 9 PM. Watch sixteen contestants battle it out for the coveted Batter’s Box Championship and test your own skill at challenging Sox trivia.
Each game consists of three innings of questions with four questions each inning. The contestants select the difficulty of their multiple choice question in the form of a single (easy) up to a home run (difficult). If a player answers two doubles correctly, they would score a run. Adding another strategic element to the game, contestants can choose to “Work the Count” and eliminate two wrong answers and to “Pinch Hit” by having their friend assist them with a difficult question. Each episode features a short segment with 98.5’s Damon Amendolara.
Sully’s imprint is clearly visible in the program. Jared will star in Sully’s first HD television commercial, a thirty second spot. Each contestant will wear a fine Sully’s tee and each contest received a parting gift courtesy of Sully’s.
Don’t forget to tune in and tell us what you think!
