Just A Heads Up & Contest Reminder

Just letting everyone know that my blogging my be light over the next few days. Tonight I am going to a "Wine and Cheese" reception for the Fergie Jenkins Foundation. There are supposed to be a lot of former MLBers there. Tomorrow afternoon I'll be heading out to NYC for Saturday's Yankees/Orioles game and won't be getting back until very late Saturday night, possibly early Sunday morning. I'll check in tonight and at least post the winner of the 2nd contest. There's still time to enter the third contest, which will be for the series against the Orioles. For those new to the blog, I'm giving away copies of the Essential Games Of Yankee Stadium DVD Box Set. The question and details on how to enter are below.

The question for that series is: How many total extra base hits, walks and stolen bases will the Yankees have in their 3 games against the Orioles?

  • E-mail your guess to me at the e-mail address listed in the upper left under "contact me"
    1 guess per person
  • Leave a comment to let me know that you submitted your guess along with your name (first name and initial)
  • Make sure to put your name in the comment if you're posting it as an anonymous user, so I know who is who and can match them up with your e-mail
  • There is no need to leave the guess in the comments--this will negate the "price is right" strategy
  • The deadline to submit a guess for the 3rd giveaway is Friday at 7:05 pm EST, which is when the 1st game of the Yankees/Orioles series starts . So get your guesses in before then and you're good.

You can also submit guesses for the 2 remaining questions also. Those questions are:

  1. What will be the total combined attendance for their 3 game series in Toronto? (attendance figure will be taken from the box score)
  2. What will the Yankees team batting average be for their 3 game series against Boston?

Answers will be in the form of a number. The person that guesses the correct "answer" for the corresponding questions, or comes closest to the correct answer without going over will win. Any ties will be broken by random drawing of all those who are correct or tied for closest to without going over. You can only win once, so if you win the DVD for the 3rd series, you won't be eligible for any of the remaining giveaways. Win the 4th giveaway and you can't win for the 5th, and so on.

Good luck and enjoy the final games at Yankee Stadium.
