And the winner of the autographed Michael Cuddyer Baseball is…..

July 6, 2011

You may recall, back in February I started a fundraiser for my hometown baseball team who were in need of funds to help upgrade their ballpark.  I said I would match every donation up to $150 and then sweetened the pot a bit.  For every person who donated $5 or more, their names would be entered in a drawing for an autographed Michael Cuddyer baseball from my personal collection.

One of the cleanest autographs in sports. Influenced by Harmon Killebrew.

I was overwhelmed with the support coming from people I’ve never met online who wanted to help out.  Within a month we had raised nearly $1000 and to all of you who donated, I give my sincerest thanks.  I would like to thank everyone who helped spread the word on Twitter and Facebook as well.  I was surprised at how quickly this got around through social media and it played a major role.

Now I must fulfill my promise of giving away one of my favorite pieces of Twins memorabilia,  my autographed baseball from Twins All-Star, Michael Cuddyer.

To ensure the fairest drawing possible, I decided to write a Perl script that would go through all of the donors names and randomly select a winner using the rand() function in Perl (yes I’m that big of a nerd).  So now, without further ado, the winner of the autographed baseball is………
