Ye Unimaginative Trivia Contest

The good people at MLB Productions have offered up a couple of MLB Productions Films for Padres Public to give-away.  In case you missed it, the specifics of the promotion were detailed here last week.  I have two (2) copies of the Prime 9:  MLB Heroics DVD that I will be HAPPY to give to you.

Now some people around here have good imaginations.  Sadly, I am not one of those people.  When in doubt, I reach back to the good-old reliable trivia contest.  After the jump, some specifics and the questions.

Specifics:  You’re vying for Prime 9:  MLB Heroics.  It can be previewed here.

Contest runs from today until 11:59 PM PDT Friday.  You can answer either or both questions below.  I will randomly select the winner from all correct entries for that question.  Winners must be residents of the US or Canada.  If you’ve already won a DVD set from Padres and Pints or Ghost of RAK, sorry – you’re not eligible to win one of these.  You can send your answers to me either by DM (@PadresTrail) or email (padrestrail@gmail.com).

The Questions:

  1. Who was the first Padre to miss hitting for the cycle by one hit?
  2. In Padres history 9 men have needed only a single to hit for the cycle but were unable to produce one.  Name the 9 men.

Good Luck!
