Congratulations to David Wing from Three Rivers, Michigan. Dave has won an autographed copy of my book “Garlic Fries and Baseball: The Book” which is being mailed to him today. This is our second contest in less than a year and both winners have been Detroit Tigers fans! What are the odds?
Here’s the response I received from David this morning:
“I’m thrilled to have been selected as the recipient of your new book. My name is David Wing and am a big fan of the Detroit Tigers. My address is (……….) Three Rivers, Michigan 49093. Please feel free to use my name in any way needed. Thanks again from an avid reader of your blog. Dave”
The contest was a drawing to celebrate this blog’s 50,000th view which occurred yesterday. The blog started only two years ago and we appreciate the response we’ve received. Baseball fans are awesome and you Detroit Tigers fans are among the best. Look back at our June 3, 2010, post “The Umpire ….. Toughest Job in Baseball” where I fell over backwards loving those Tiger fans. And now with Justin Verlander the raves just keep coming.
So thanks again to all our subscribers and especially to David Wing. We’ll do this again when we reach another milestone!
