Mark Fidrych Book Contest



A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a review of the new Mark Fidrych biography written by Doug Wilson: "The Bird: The Life and Legacy of Mark Fidrych".  I highly recommend this book.  It is a great read for all Tigers fans whether you remember seeing him pitch or not.

I happen to have an extra copy of the book, so I have decided to give it away in a simple prediction contest.  Here is the question:

Which Tiger will get the most total bases in the series at Seattle between April 16 - 18 and how many will he get?

The tie breaker question is:

Which Tiger will get on base the most times in the series at Seattle between April 16 - 18 and how many times will he get on base?

The winner gets a free copy of the book.  Please put your predictions in the comments section.  You have until 10 PM EST on Tuesday to submit a guess.  I will announce the winner on Friday and we'll arrange to get the book sent.
