Tigers DVD Giveaway


On Friday I wrote about a new DVD featuring the Tigers World Championship teams from 1945, 1968, and 1984. The folks from A & E have provided me with 3 copies that I in turn get to give to you. To do this I’m running 2 contests. You are eligible to enter both contests, so you have a couple chances to win.

1. Final cut

I will be giving away one DVD to the reader who guesses who the Tigers last cut of spring training will be. Just pick one Tiger and if he is the last to leave the big team, you could win. Now a couple notes:

Use the Contact Form to submit your best guess. Because there is a time implication on this one, all entries must be received by noon ET on Tuesday March 20th. One entry per person please. The winner will be announced when the roster is trimmed to 25.

2. Tiger Memories

In this contest I will select 2 winners. This one will require a little more effort and I want you to write about your memories from a Tigers World Series victory. Pick one of the World Series’ featured in the DVD (45/68/84) and tell me about your experience. What I want to know are things like me how old you were, where you were, what you were doing at the time and why it was special to you.

The judging of this will be completely subjective and done primarily by me (but I reserve the right to consult some other judges). I’ll be looking for stories that are interesting, touching, well written, etc.

All entries should be less than 300 words. Again, use the contact form to submit your entry. Entries for contest 2 need to be submitted by noon ET on Saturday March 24th. I do plan on posting the winners, so you expect that your entry could end up here. The winners will be announced on March 27th.

Please enter a valid email address on the form, otherwise I won’t be able to contact you if you win.

Now if you just want to go ahead and buy one, you can find them at A & E’s online store. If you order before March 28th you will receive a bonus DVD – Modern Marvels Baseball Parks.

  2. I’d love to do contest 2 if I was, you know, born the last time the Tigers won the World Series.

    So, who just felt old reading that?

  6. Old enough to enter contest 2 (and have done so) for the 84 series and technically even for 68 … age does have some benefits…
