Zachary's Ball Giveaway, World Series Edition!

The Red Sox made it to the World Series!! And it starts tomorrow!!! To celebrate, I'm giving away this autographed copy of Zachary's Ball, with an original pen drawing inside, of Shane Victorino hitting his amazing game-winning grand slam in game 6 of the ALCS.

To enter, just leave a comment with your prediction for the World Series (you know, Sox in 4, Sox in 6, Sox in 7, etc...). I'll just pick a winner randomly. I'm thinking I might do a few more of these during the series, especially if a lot of people enter to win this one.

Here's the drawing of Victorino on the title page:



























This copy is a Fenway Centennial Edition of Zachary's Ball, which came out in 2012. Here's the cover:



























And even if you don't win, if you're looking for a good Red Sox bedtime story to read to your kids during the final days of this magical season, you can buy signed first edition copies of Zachary's Ball through my web site, or unsigned copies at all the usual places.

GO SOX!!

  1. Sox in 5 - my dad has tickets to game 6 - he also had tickets to game 6 in 2004 and 2007 - needless to say, he has YET to make it to a Red Sox world series game - thinking that might be the case this year too!

  8. Six in 6 - only at Fenway! So glad you drew Shane with his BEARD!

    Napoli's beard is getting a little scary at this point. It's probably as full of crumbs as it is of good luck! Thanks Matt.

  10. Oh my original post didn't take....Sox in 7, mostly because Halloween on the streets of Boston while celebrating a win would be awesome (I also think with kids already hopped up on candy, parents might be more likely to let them stay up!)
