Here's The "10,000 More Hits Than Uribe Contest"

hey everybody,

as i mentioned in my last post, in honor and appreciation of  ATBATT hitting the 10,000 hits mark, i'm officially launching my first ever contest, the...

               "10,000 MORE HITS THAN JUAN URIBE CONTEST"


can the blogoworlds handle yet another contest?  you all know tom over at The Angels In Order is already running a contest, and Fuji san over at The Chronicles of Fuji  is running one as well, and those are the ones i'm aware of.  is this contest overkill?  nahhhhh....

the 10,000 hits contest will be points based.  there will be several rounds, with each round exposing a prize tier.  for example, round one features the prizes for first place and offers the chance to earn several points.  round two will feature the prizes for second place, and so on.

 at the end of the contest, i'll put all the entry points into a randomizer, randomize it 3 times, and that will be the list of the final 5 winners.  in addition to winning the prizes for that tier, each of the top 3 winners will receive a fistful of cards from their favorite team.



for this round i'm gonna use the ever popular  format of:

one point for following ATBATT.  if you already follow, or you're new, just say so in the comments below.
one point for plugging my contest on your blog, and
one point for placing the link in my comments below.
That's a total of 3 points possible for round one.  not all rounds will offer as many points, but they won't all be as 'labor intensive' either.  


the cards that have been sprinkled throughout this post are the 4 cards that are the first place prizes. 

so, become a follower, pimp dis shite, link it in the comments, and you're on your way to these cool first place cards.


one last note - each person who wrote a congratulations comment on my '10,000 hits thank you' post (as of this writing) will receive one extra bonus entry point.  thats greg zawkin, dutch card guy, nick, Dodgerbobble, ba benny, chunter and play at the plate.  you guys took the time to send congrats, and as appreciation, you all get the first points.

Ready...Steady...GO !

    1. cool, brother. you pick up following and pimpage points, plus one extra for being the first pimp. thats 3 points.
      send back a link and pick up one more point. i would give it to you, but it wouldn't really be fair to other folk who post their links. that link point will get you to 4, and one more closer to that kaline vintage. :)

    1. chunter, thanks for the link to the uribe story. in the end, i like the skippers attitude about not giving up. that says alot to players. the fact that he also said it doesn't mean he's gonna get a lot of playing time also says something to the players. bonus point for that link !
