Dodgers Past & Present: Contest

Okay, here's your chance to win your very own copy of Dodgers Past and Present,, generously offered by the fine folks at Quayside Publishing Group in lovely Minneapolis, Minnesota. All you have to do is email us (see sidebar) with the answer to this question:

In the book, author Steven Travers mentions an unprecedented (and to my knowledge, unrepeated) event that occurred in the 1920 World Series. What happened, and who was the hero?

Contest rules: Please do not post your answer in the comment thread. Instead, email us with the solution before the start of today's Dodgers-Marlins baseball game (first pitch at 3p PT). Correct answers will be put in a lottery for the prize, based on attendance of an upcoming game (see our recent Orange Shake contest for an explanation of how these attendance-based lotteries are conducted). I'm hoping to get the eligible entrants posted in time for Sunday's early Marlins game, but we'll have to see how early I start drinking on Saturday.

Disclaimers and fine print:

  • Sons of Steve Garvey and its authors assume no liability for damages or lost items associated with the shipment of this prize; prizes lost in the mail or otherwise not delivered are not the responsibility of Sons of Steve Garvey or its authors.
  • Prize recipient strongly encouraged to send in a picture with the gift to SoSG, upon receipt of the item.

Good luck!

UPDATE: Contest is now closed. Correct answer is listed here. Thanks to those who entered!

Okay, I sent in a revised answer to my previous answer b/c I made a big mistake in my first answer.
