The third of three winners in our summer contest recognizing the top post from last month on our free Message Board is PhillyRooster. He receives an autographed copy of Rob Rains’ new book, “Tony La Russa: Man on a Mission”.
I think Brian's done a lot of work on this in the past and not many of us did nominations, so I'm disinclined to ask Brian to do any more. But perhaps we could leave the thread as a place for shoutouts for anyone who so chooses? Not sure how much it clutters things up.
I am pleased to announce that for one month only, our popular summer message board contest recognizing the top Post of the Month has made a comeback.
The best post during October will receive a special prize - an autographed copy of the new book “Satchel - The Life and Times of an American Legend”, signed by author Larry Tye.
The Negro League legend and Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Satchel Paige spent the majority of his brief and late major league career with the 1951-1953 St. Louis Browns at the ages of 44-46.
Tye’s book is meticulously researched and serves as a complete ledger of the life and career one of the most-important figures in baseball in the 20th Century. To see a four minute video about Paige narrated by Tye, click on this link.
Remember that to nominate a post for consideration, you need to clearly identify it ON THIS THREAD.
Nicely done and a most hardy congratulations, Gags!!!! As an aside, there's an "Ank" in "Kanye".....also, you're just one "e" short of "Kanye" spelling "Yankee". Kanye must be a budding Yankee fan? Either that or the baseball Gods are yelling us that Ankiel will be wearing pinstripes in 2010.....pinstripes with only 2 digits gracing it's back, not 8.
