The Last Ship,  the new musical slated to start at the Bank of America Theatre on June 10, features the music by which pop artist?
  • Barry Gibb
  • Sting
  • Elton John
  • Jon Bon Jovi

After a decade of writer’s block, Sting has reinvented himself and is writing again, just not the pop songs of his younger years. The Last Ship is an album (released September 2013)  that is the soundtrack to a play he conceived and co-wrote.  Tapping into his roots as a child growing up under the shadow of shipyards in Wallsend, England, the play is about a post-industrial community and all the baggage from Sting’s own unhappy childhood. Buy The Last Ship tickets here

How many stitches does a baseball have?
  • 108
  • 96
  • 72
  • 54

All baseballs are created equal.  Every baseball used in an MLB has the same 108-stitch pattern, wrapping white leather around a center or cork or rubber.  During baseball’s ‘Steroid Era’, there was a theory that the baseballs themselves were juiced with a core that caused it to travel farther; however as more evidence came out indicting players for juicing, this theory faded.
