Jeopardy featured a baseball question, which a contestant got hilariously wrong

Like a lot of things, being on television game show "Jeopardy!" is certainly harder than it appears. With the pressure of millions of people watching, contestants not only have to be able to call to mind nearly random bits of trivia, but they have to be able to do it faster than two other people who are very good at that task.

On Wednesday night, under the category of "Spring Medley," contestants were asked to put their Spring Training knowledge on display. The result was ... not great:

The question, of course, is "What is the Grapefruit League?" Despite clearly not knowing the correct response, Jack answered with an air of confidence that suggested true knowledge. Unfortunately, Jack wasn't even remotely correct seeing as grapefruits grow on trees, not bushes. Better luck next time, Jack!
