Harrelson left the broadcast booth and went to the Fundamentals Fan Deck in left field for the challenge.

Southpaw, the White Sox mascot, dumped the first bucket on Hawk, but Jim Thome snuck in with a second one.

When asked on the air by Boyer how it felt, Harrelson said, "Cold."

There was a humorous promise made by Harrelson to get even with both Boyer and Thome, but he praised the money being raised for ALS research through these challenges.
