Courtesy of bhsportsguy, I have two tickets to Monday night's Dodgers-Brewers game at Dodger Stadium. It's a 7:10 pm start and the seats are in the Reserved Section, Aisle 1, Row R, Seats 1 and 2.

The tickets will go to the first person to email the answer to this question:

Who was the first player from the current Milwaukee Brewer franchise (this counts the AL and NL years, but NOT the 1969 Seattle Pilots season) to reach first base on catcher's interference.

Please e-mail your answer to

Put "Griddle contest" in your subject line.

Update - As of commenter "deadteddy8" got the right answer of Mike Hegan, who reached first on catcher's interference for the Brewers on June 3, 1970 at County Stadium in the fifth inning, three innings before teammate Jerry McNertney did the same. Cleveland catcher Ray Fosse was the guilty party both times.

For the record, Andrew Shimmin got the answer first, but did not want the tickets.

I like to think of myself as a co-sponsor of this contest, since I demurred on taking the tickets. All by way of saying: You're welcome deadteddy8. Enjoy the game!
