Lefty Wins the Game!
RAY: Here's the answer. The fact that his nickname was Lefty should help. Lefties have good pick-off moves. So imagine this: It's the top of the ninth, and the game is tied. The opponents have a guy on first base and there are two outs. Lefty's brought in. He doesn't throw a single pitch. Instead he picks the guy off of first base.
Inning over. Did he throw a pitch?
RAY: Bottom of the ninth one of his teammates hits a homerun, end of game, Lefty wins, gets his bonus, gets his thousand bucks and the manager gets fired anyway.
Do we have a winner?
TOM: Yeah, the winner is Shelby Wilson from Bloomington, Indiana!
