April Contest

You may have heard that 2012 includes the 100th birthday of Fenway Park. Really. It’s in all the papers. 2012 also marks the 100th anniversary of the 1912 World Championship Red Sox season. This World Series was wonderfully brought to life in Mike Vaccaro’s book The First Fall Classic. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate both anniversaries than by giving away hardcover copies of that book during the season. It's a great book whether you're a Sox fan, a Giants fan, or a Dodgers fan (After all, SPOILER ALERT the Giants lose). April’s contest marks your first chance to win.

What do you have to do to win? Not too much. Something you probably do anyway. I want you to score a game using the official Section 36 scorecard. Then, e-mail me a copy of it to section36 at gmail dot com. Every person who sends me a scorecard before the end of the month will be entered in a random drawing for a copy of the book. Wow. That’s easy.

So, you have this month to score a game. It doesn’t have to be a Red Sox game, either. It can be a Yankees-Blue Jays game. A Phillies-Dodgers game. A minor league game. A high school game. You can score it live. Score it from the radio. Score it from the TV. Score it from a DVD. Copy an old scorecard onto one of mine. Whatever you’ve got. Entries will be accepted until 12:36 PM on April 30, 2012.

So get out there and score!


  1. Awesome! I'll take you up on that. Already printed my scoresheets out.

  2. That's great. Glad you were able to print them out!
