The inaugural Padres Public Online Scavenger Hunt is now over and done with and a winner has been named.

For those of you who weren’t paying attention — which based on the number of entries I received wasn’t as much as I expected — Padres Public managed to get a few copies of MLB Bloopers Deluxe Doubleheader and Prime 9: MLB Heroics DVDs from MLB Productions.

(If you find yourself asking “Why 19?” you should stop reading this blog and Google “San Diego Padres #19” right now.)

The winner is Nate, aka @Taterz1021 on Twitter, who correctly answered 18 out of the 19 questions I asked.

Let’s take a look at the questions, followed by the answer I was looking for and the post that it was contained in.

And, wouldn’t you know it? The Padres are playing this week in Chicago, at Wrigley Field, and against the Cubs.

What are the odds?*
