The Philadelphia Ballhawk 2013-14 Winter Challenge Giveaway

Hi and welcome to The Philadelphia Ballhawk 2013-14 Winter Challenge Giveaway. This contest is running until the first team’s pitchers and catchers report, on February 13th.

There will be one winner, who will get a choice of items that may be stadium giveaways or something along those lines. The winner will be the person whose name gets picked out of a hat, which I’m recording so I PROMISE I WON’T RIG IT. Maybe I’ll do a live stream

I’ll be keeping track of entries on a Keynote document, which I can forward to anyone who wants to see it.

Most entries will be earned by answering questions, although there may be some where you have to retweet or share a post.

Prompts will be posted here, on Twitter (@phiballhawk), Facebook (Harrison Tishler, it is not a page you like, you have to send a friend request in order to see everything) and Instagram (@htishler).


You can only guess once per question.

And finally, try to use the hashtag #PBWCG in all posts.


As a bonus, retweet this for a free entry:

      There was too long of a gap in between posts so I’m going to have to say no, even though I’m pretty sure you had the right answers. If you would have said continued on the first post, I would have said ok

  1. Quinn

    14. Ivan nova, lance berkman, tommy phelps, Reid gorecki, John Van Benschoten, Rene Rivera, Justin Christian, Joseph Corban, Brandon Laird, and Austin Romine.

    12a) You have the single game record for: Arm & Hammer, Coca Cola Park, and Firstenergy Stadium
    12b) You have the overall record for: Arm & Hammer Park, Coca Cola Park, and First Energy Stadium

    44: It has to do with the 2010 Philles pitching rotation. The R2 represents Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt. The C2 represents Cole Hammels and Cliff Lee. 2 star pitchers in the rotation with the first name that start with R and 2 star pitchers in the rotation whose first name starts with C.

  4. Nick Badders

    1) 42 is a 2013 American biographical sports film about Jackie Robinson.
    2) The Dodgers retired Jackie Robinson’s #42 in 1972
    3) The number was retired across MLB in 1997 in honor and memory of Jackie Robinson.
    4) On April 15, every player on every team wears #42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. It is “Jackie Robinson day”.
    5) Mariano Rivera was the last active player to wear the #42. It now will only be worn in April 15th.

  5. Cook & Son Batst

    Maybe these were already answered, I don’t know:

    47) Citizens Bank Park, Veterans Stadium, Coca-Cola Park

    55) None of them. If any of them, it must be Exxon Match Game….I know there is a match game.

    56) No to Geno’s, no to Peace A Pizza (they have Seasons Pizza), No Taskykakes….so I guess it must be Phood Stand (but, if so, we’ve never got phood there).

    57) D. Certainly they have A and B. I know they love Phoebe and I’ve seen stuff celebrating her…so I got with D.

    58) I have no clue what Muff is….but the Phanatic Shoe used to be on the upper concourse just to the 1B side of home plate. It’s been gone for years…so I’m going with C.

    62) My guess is The Vet. I peg the Tishlers as a family who goes to baseball games because “the boy” loves baseball. The Boy was about 4 when The Vet closed its doors…so my guess is that the Tishler folks never took The Boy to The Vet.

    63) This one is much harder…I really want to say D….so I will. D.

      47) Technically, I was looking for Ameriquest Field but Coca Cola does have the bottle so I’ll give it to you.
      55) Yes, none of them are real. There is the sunoco match game, however.
      56) Yes, the Phood Stand is real.
      57) No, they really walk onto the field on Opening Day.
      58) Yes, the Phanatic shoe is on the upper level.
      62) I’ve been to the Vet three or four times. My first MLB game was Kevin Millwood’s No Hitter in April of 2003.
      63) Come on, you know I like the Orioles! Nope

        And a few notes:
        56) Peace A Pizza was the old stand, which closed in 2007.
        58) Muff is what Gary Matthews and Chase Utley call Chris Wheeler
        58) The shoe is gone? I haven’t been up in the 300s for a few years so I never noticed that.
        62) I was three when the Phillies played their last game at the Vet.
