Test your Cardinals trivia, win a free DVDPosted Wednesday, April 4, 2012, at 2:15 PM
On Friday morning in Corey Noles' column and blog, a Cardinals trivia question will be asked. Anyone who submits a correct answer will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of "BASEBALL'S GREATEST GAMES: 2011 WORLD SERIES GAME 6 Bluray/DVD Combo Pack," donated by A&E Home Video and slated for an April 17 release date. Get yours before it's available to the public if your name is selected.
Entries will be accepted from Friday, April 6, 2012 until 12 noon the following Thursday, April 12.
All correct entries will be entered together and a winner will be drawn at random.
Answers may be submitted via the mailbag forum on the blog at dailystatesman.com/blogs/coreynoles , via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as by stopping in The Daily Statesman office at 133 S. Walnut in Dexter.
A total of three copies of the DVD are available for giveaway with one being awarded each week.
The St. Louis Cardinals thrilled Cardinal Nation with a game full of heart-stopping comebacks, including a spectacular 11th inning walk-off home run. Hometown hero and budding star David Freese smashed the solo shot in the final inning that provided a fitting finale to a spectacular Fall Classic matchup.
In Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, on the edge of elimination, the Cardinals trailed five times and were twice down to their last strike. But Freese, Lance Berkman and a resilient lineup evened the score each time until Freese delivered the second of his incredible moments--the wondrous walk-off homer. All of the drama, thrills, exhilaration and jubilation of this Fall Classic masterpiece are available for the first time in HD with the roar of the crowd in 5.1 surround sound.
"Direct from the archives of Major League Baseball, this extraordinary television broadcast includes the quintessential making of an iconic moment, and one unforgettable baseball game available for the first time on Blu-Ray," say A&E promoters.
Once all of the copies of this DVD have been awarded, The Daily Statesman will begin a contest for yet another Cardinals DVD. Follow Balls & Strikes daily for more information.
