Last Chance To Win a Free Copy of THT 2013!

In case you hadn’t heard, The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2013 has hit internet bookshelves. You can read all about it here in Dave Studeman’s post, or you can listen to Carson Cistulli and myself discuss it here on a FanGraphs Audio podcast.

Because we’re giving folk, and since it’s the beginning of the holiday season and all, we want to give you a chance to win yourself a free copy of the book. So each day this week, we’ve been running a trivia contest based on one of the articles in the book. Today is our final contest — you can find the previous contests here, here, here and here if you’re into that sort of thing. The first person to post the correct answer in the comments today will win a free physical copy of the book (sorry, no free Kindle or Nook versions). It’s just that simple!

Today’s question comes from the article entitled “Bryce Harper and Mike Trout Make History.” Written by THT’s prospect wizard Jeff Moore, it takes a look back at the season that was for the two impactful rookies, and how the season compares to other seasons with awesome rookies. And that brings us, dear reader, to the trivia question before you today:

In which two seasons did both players who won the Rookie of the Year Award go on to become Hall of Famers? Name both the players and the seasons.

Be quick with your answer, and you can win a free copy of THT 13. And if you’re not the lucky winner, don’t forget to check back in with us on Thursday and Friday! Or, if you’d rather not wait, you can purchase the book at the following destinations:

Amazon (in either physical or Kindle form)
Barnes & Noble (in Nook form)
Createspace (also in physical form).

We hope to have it up on Apple’s iBooks soon as well.
