We Have a Winner!

I threw up a little contest to celebrate this blog's 450th post, it's 1st birthday, it's 120th follower and also to eat some humble pie after the Rays were victims of a perfect game for the second time in 2 years. I asked who the lone baserunner was during Vida Blue's no-hitter and 8 of you answered with all of the correct information. I entered the names at random dot org and randomized three times and we have a winner of the autographed Vida Blue postcard. It is:
List Randomizer
There were 8 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

Congrats to BA Benny! Send me your address again and I will send this out to you. Thanks to everyone for playing. Next contest I will have to find a more difficult question. I actually know what the next contest will ask, I just don't know what the prize will be yet. As some of you know I get all of my statistical information from Baseball Reference dot com and I sponsor several different pages. Many player pages are available to be sponsored for between 5 and 10 bucks a piece. These donations help keep the site going and they are a good way to connect with other fans of your favorite players. I now have sponsored 10 different player pages. In the next contest I will ask you guys to name all ten. Thats all for now, congrats to BA Benny! Off to work! Go Rays! troll out.

  4. Cam, this is the criteria cut and pasted from the original post:
    He missed having a perfect game however. In the 4th inning he allowed a baserunner. Name that baserunner, his team and how he reached base in the comments.
    I let a few slide on missing the team, but just the name wasn't enough...

  6. Ha! Another close loss, but thanks for the great contest Bacon!
