Jeopardy! Contestants Struggle With Red Sox-Related Question (Video)

The 2013 Major League Baseball Hall of Fame vote controversy spread even to the intellectual world of TV game shows.

On a recent episode of Jeopardy!, host Alex Trebek gave the show’s three contestants the relatively softball question; “354 wins did not overcome the controversy as this ex-Red Sox pitcher didn’t make the Hall of Fame cut in 2013.” The contestants were tasked with coming up with a response — in the form of a question — and they did just that.

Each contestant gave an answer:

“Who is Mark McGuire?”

“Who is Pete Rose?”

“Who is Curt Schilling?”

Wrong, wrong and wrong. The correct answer, of course, is Roger Clemens.

Check out the sports trivia struggle in the video below.
