Appears like there isn’t any unhealthy blood in between “Jeopardy.” champion Amy Schneider and Fox Sports activities.
Schneider informed TMZ that Fox Sports activities despatched him a private apology and clarification after the community was accused of being intentionally excluded from the present when he scored the primary hit of the Giants’ Delight Day earlier this month.
“They are saying the explanation they misled their viewers was cross-advertising, nothing to do with me, so I am going to maintain their phrase,” stated Schneider, the primary transgender contestant to broadcast “Jeopardy!” take part within the champions’ match.
Schneider was invited to throw out the primary sq. in Oracle Park on June 12, the day of big delight. As a substitute of Fox Sports activities aired NASCAR pilot Kurt Busch’s first square from the earlier Thursday.
The director of the Fox Sports activities broadcast turned to Schneider to apologize and reiterated that the scenario had nothing to do together with his identification, TMZ stated, including that Schneider had accepted the community’s apology.
On the time, Fox Sports activities stated there wouldn’t usually be a TV present on the primary pitches.
“On Saturday, as a part of a promotional bundle for the NASCAR race this weekend in Northern California, we recorded the well-known NASCAR driver Kurt Busch for the primary time,” a Fox Sports activities spokesman informed SFGATE.com on the time. “It was not at all meant to overshadow the ceremonial first sq. of the sport, as it’s not regular for us.”
