"The Batter's Box presented by Midas," a brand new Chicago baseball trivia game show will officially debut this Sunday at 5:00 p.m.!
The show, which will be hosted by Luke Stuckmeyer, will pit 16 Chicago-area contestants (eight Cubs trivia experts and eight White Sox trivia experts) against one another over the course of 15 weeks.
The contestants will answer multiple-choice questions, ranging from easy (singles) to challenging (home runs) in an attempt to move 'runners' around the bases and score runs.
The grand prize winner will receive the ultimate Game Day Experience of a Lifetime, which includes a luxury suite for the winner & their guests at either U.S. Cellular Field or Wrigley Field for a to-be-determined game in 2013, along with a visit to the broadcast booth to the meet the announcers, a visit to the CSN production truck, the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and much more.
In addition, viewers at home can also participate for their chance to win some great prizes by visiting the official "Batter's Box" page on CSNChicago.com and correctly answering the Midas Trivia Question of the Week. One random winner among all the correct entries will be chosen each week.
