Jeopardy’s Troy Tulowitzki answer wrecked by Blue Jays trade

Thursday July 30th, 2015

Troy Tulowitzki was not the only one surprised to find himself traded from his longtime home with the Rockies to the Blue Jays.

On Wednesday's episode of Jeopardy! one of the show's answers was “In 2015 shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hopes to help this team fulfill its mile high hopes.”

When the episode was filmed this was a perfectly reasonable prompt, but since then the shortstop has been moved to Toronto, whose elevation is just 249 feet above sea level, a far cry from his former hometown's lofty elevation.
