Book of the Week Contest: Ted Williams, My Father

June 11, 2014

Congratulations to Aron L. of Springfield, NJ, winner of Jonah Keri’s Up, Up, and Away: The Kid, the Hawk, Rock, Vladi, Pedro, le Grand Orange, Youppi!, the Crazy Business of Baseball, and the Ill-fated but Unforgettable Montreal Expos.

A reminder of the new rules:

This is now a random pick. I didn’t think it was fair for those who did leave a note in weeks where the rest of you lazy buggers might not. But the rest applies. Comments have to be posted on the site — not as a “like” or comment on Facebook (although that’s greatly appreciated) or any other social media or via e-mail — wins.

Comments do not have to pertain to the particular post you are currently reading but they do have to be related to the overall scope of the blog, please; no “My team’s great, your team sucks” nonsense. Y’all have been good about that. Keep it up.

If you’ve won a book in the last three months — and you’ll know who you are — you can’t win again. Share the wealth. That doesn’t mean you can’t share your thoughts, though. Please do.

Not mandatory, but I would appreciate the winners taking a picture of him- or herself with their giftee so I can post it on the blog. So far, none of you have done that.

That’s it. Simple enough, no?

Have at it.
