Loney / Martin Home Run Contest

It is May 11th and sadly our starting catcher and 1st baseman have yet to go yard. So as a way to have fun with this predicament True Blue is launching a contest for our readers to guess which one will hit the first home run.

The winner will get a choice of a

Bluetopia DVD or a Dodger 2009 Media Guide or copy of Jon Weisman's 100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die

BlueTrain asked who cares and I did forget to add the history to this little event. The point is that it is very unusual and you have to go back over 44 years to find a starting Dodger combo  of 1st/catcher who have not homered by May 11th.  In 1965 Parker hit his first home run on May 8th and Roseboro finally followed suit on June 2nd.
