Week 1 Wieters winner is…

As some of you may know, I am posting daily as we lead up to opening day.  In anticipation of opening day, I’m giving away weekly prizes to my readers.  To enter, all that one needs to do is post a comment on one of my blog entries from that week, or retweet one of my blog entries with the #countingbaseballs.

This week, I’m giving away this Matt Wieters jersey shirt.

I compiled a running list throughout the week of everyone that left comments and retweeted my blog posts. At 9:15, I enlisted my daughter Olivia to do the honors. After grabbing a fistful of seven names or so, on her second attempt she came up with two names. She dropped the other one back into the hat and we had our winner:

The winner is Joey Orr.  Congratulations!

Joey has left comments under the handle joeyorr4 and tweets from @joeyorr4

There’s only 60 more days until Opening Day, 13 days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training!  Opening day is exactly one month away!

Check back tomorrow for a new giveaway item.

    Good luck to everyone and I may take your score prediction for the record. I have the Patriots but it will be close. Giants seem destined to win, but Patriots are out for revenge. They don’t want to look bad to the same team twice on this big of a stage.

    I’m going to have to use that football predictions method. I’d perfect for me in that baseball is way up here and all other sports are down here (I know you can’t see me, but I am holding my left hand as high as I can to symbolize baseball and my right hand as low as I can while typing to symbolize all other sports). Also, just withhold my name from this contest. I already have a Matt Weiters T-Shirt from his rookie year and wouldn’t want to take that away from someone who actually wanted the shirt.
