And the Winner Is...

Long before the weeklong celebration of Ross Grimsley’s Major League debut hit the site, I made a promise.

I promised all of you that I would be giving away a copy of Dan Epstein’s fantastic book Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s.

Plenty of you had great suggestions for who your favorite player of the decade was and kudos to Bill Jacobs who brought Grimsley’s name into the fold.

But, after a random draw, the winner of the book is…Kerry Devine (hence the picture of Chet Lemon above and the video below).

Congrats!

And if you haven’t yet…please check out the interview I did with Epstein. It’s afro-tastic!
