Baseball Question of the Day: Challenge of the Baseball Immortals!

Pop quiz, hotshot!

A man with omnipotent powers appears in your living room, puts his hands on you and you are immediately teleported to a postcard-perfect baseball diamond in the middle of a clearing in a magical meadow. You almost cry due to sensory overload. “Is this heaven?” you ask to no one in particular.

The moment those words escape your lips, the man who teleported you morphs into a villainous archetype chosen by your subconscious and particularized to your own memory, experience and, perhaps, your fears. Maybe it’s Dracula. Maybe it’s Jason from the “Friday the 13th Movies.” In my case it is, of course, Tomax and Xamot, the twin commanders of the Crimson Guard and the co-CEOs of the international conglomerate Extensive Enterprises which bankrolls Cobra Command.

“You have one chance,” Tomax begins, “to save your life,” Xamot says, completing the sentence. “Chose your challenge,” they say in unison. Before you, a man appears out of thin air.

I haven’t a chance in any of these circumstances- any of you think you have one?
