It’s Twitter Tuesday, and we’re giving away tickets.

Baseball fans and trivia contests are as natural a pairing as pine tar
and Craig Biggio’s batting helmets, so we’ve decided to make those
contests a weekly presence, beginning today.

Every Tuesday,
we’re going to post a question on Twitter, and the first person to tweet
back the correct answer will win two free tickets to any game this
season, with the exception of Opening Day (April 8), the Red Sox series
(July 1-3) and the final homestand of the season (Sept. 22-28).

But there’s a twist. This isn’t a garden-variety trivia contest. While we’re calling this Twitter Tuesday, the full, unabridged, official name of this contest is Google-free, can’t-find-it-on-the-internet, won’t-be-able-to-look-it-up-on-baseballreference.com Twitter Tuesday.

In
other words, we’ll be digging deep and asking the real probing
questions that you’ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

Who needs Hunter Pence’s
career OPS when you can find out what he had for dinner three nights
ago? Or what his very first job was in high school? Or how he likes his
eggs cooked?

Google-free, can’t-find-it-on-the-internet,
won’t-be-able-to-look-it-up-on-baseballreference.com Twitter Tuesday
will be conducted exclusively through my Twitter profile, so if you’re
not following, please go to http://www.twitter.com/alysonfooter. We’ll post the question at noon CT every Tuesday, and the first correct answer wins.
