The luckiest man on the face of the earth, or just Albuquerque
by Bob Timmermann
The Albuquerque Tribune has the story of Larry Trujillo, a 45-year old hair stylist from Albuquerque.
On August 1, 2005, Trujillo attended an Albuquerque Isotopes game and signed up for an in-game contest where he could win a car if an Isotopes player hit a grand slam in the third inning. And on that day, the Isotopes loaded the bases and Jason Wood hit a grand slam and Trujillo won the contest and got a 2005 Nissan XTrerra.
Now, let's move ahead to May 5. Trujillo goes to an Isotopes game, enters the same contest, has his name selected, and ... Paul Hoover hits a grand slam in the third and Trujillo drives home in a 2006 Ford Escape.
No word yet on whether or not Trujillo is playing the lottery in New Mexico with the number 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 however.
