Jeopardy! Comes to the Little League Baseball World Series

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Aug. 23, 2007) – The “Clue Crew” from the syndicated game show Jeopardy! will be at the Little League International complex on Friday to film scenes for upcoming shows.

The Clue Crew travels around the world to significant and historic places, coming up with video clues for the popular game show.

“We are pleased that the Clue Crew from Jeopardy! will be joining us here in Williamsport,” Stephen D. Keener, president and chief executive officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “The Little League Baseball World Series is a familiar icon every August on national television, and now it will be a part of one of the most popular game shows in television history.”

The Clue Crew will spend time filming in the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum, as well as on the field at Howard J. Lamade Stadium. Little League will be a category during a Jeopardy! show this season at a date to be announced. Other Little League-related subjects will be used at other times during the season.

Originally aired in 1964, Jeopardy! will begin its 24th consecutive season in September, hosted again by Alex Trebek. Contestants are provided clues in the form of an answer, to which they must reply as a question.
