9th inning, game 7 of the World Series, tie game. 1.) Who do you want pitching and why? 2.) Who o you want at the plate and why? My pitcher would be Mariano Riviera, because he has proven to be a dominat pitcher in the playoffs, and I would not be worried with the ball in his hands. My hitter would be Derek Jeter, he has a lot of playoff experience, and I dont believe that we would need a power hitter in this situation. He would give me a lot of chances to win the game, and hes been known to be clutch in the past. It as to be an active player.
