Ticket Giveaway Trivia Question

It is trivia question time.

Here is how this will work.  The first person to correctly answer the upcoming trivia question in the comments portion of this post will win the two tickets to tomorrow’s game.  The winning person will be contacted via email with the details of how to receive your tickets.  Here’s the question…

When I was about 8 years old, my family went on our summer vacation to Cincinnati to watch the Reds.  While killing time one afternoon, we went to one of the local malls.  While walking through the mall, my father saw a man in one of the department stores that he insisted was a Reds player.  He told me I should go up to him and ask for his autograph.  Not quite knowing how to approach the man, I came up with a plan.  I walked up to him and asked him “Has anyone ever told you that you look like ____  ______?”  His response was “Yeah, my mother did when she named me that when I was born.”

Embarrassed, I mutter if I can have his autograph.  He says yes as long as his wife is still in the dressing room.

Thus the question, which Reds relief pitcher did I run into at the mall over 20 years ago?

Happy guessing, and good luck.

Edit #2! – Am I a goof or what?  After declaring OklahomaChase the winner, it appears as though we had more people eager for these tickets than I thought as many comments were awaiting moderation.  Cincy0003 answered correctly first based on the time stamps of the messages and thus Cincy0003 will be the winner.  I will now go hide under a rock…

  1. That’s not really a “trivia” question. It’s more of a “guess who I’m thinking of” question.

  2. It’s a good story though. Who was it? Everyone answers like eight time each so it’s hard to tell. Charlton?

  3. Ah, Charlton. A funny thing was that Dibble and Myers used to call him “The Genius” because he had a triple major in college.
