This is something new we're starting. We may not do it everyday, but we will try to do it quite regularly. What we're doing is this:
- We will be running regular polls to determine a Player of the Game from the previous night/afternoon game
- At the end of the year, we will tally all PotG winners
- Whichever player has the most PotG "wins" will have a donation made to a charity supported by that player (not sure how much, likely between $300 and $500)
And that's it!
Looking at last night, there are a few worthy candidates but I think we all know who deserves the vote. But we'll leave it to you. Now, your Player of the Game candidates.
Nick Blackburn: 9 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 6 K, 0 BB
Denard Span: 3-for-4, 2B, 3B, RBI
Alexi Casilla: 2-for-3, 2B, big defensive play
