The JOBC Contest
What was his name?
The first person that e-mails me the correct answer at firstname.lastname@example.org will win a commemorative Greg Maddux 3000th strikeout scorecard, an autographed copy of the excellent baseball novel "The Pitch" (by Hank Owens), plus a t-shirt from the Just One Bad Century catalog.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Bill Whitburn, the first person to e-mail me the correct answer. He knew that Fred Merkle, the notorious Boner or Bonehead, was the first baseman on that 1918 World Series Cubs team. (Read all about Boner's story here.)
