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.

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. Info was provided courtesy of Bob Timmerrmann.
