    sonsofsamhorn.com is having a contest and the winner(s) will get Sox tickets.


    All you have to do is write something about baseball. It can be anything – a statistical analysis of how Mookie Betts hits with RISP and a runner at 3b, an appreciation of Rich Garces’s Red Sox career, an exploration of Clayton Kershaw’s postseason issues, a historical investigation of Jack Glasscock’s defensive prowess – if it is baseball related and well-written, then you can win tickets to a Red Sox game in 2017.

    All submissions are likely to be published on the .COM and thus, featured on Google News and seen by local media outlets like CSNNE.com and masslive.com. Even if you don’t win, you’ll be a published author.

    Articles to be published will go through our normal editing process.

    If you have any questions, please post them here.

    Send your best work to [email protected].

    Submissions must be sent in by 4PM Eastern on 4/1.

    Please include both your username and actual name on submissions.

    Question...does an article need to be a hardcore, data-based article? Or can it be more of a short essay about a Red Sox related memory or more of a "softer" piece? This sounds very interesting, but I am far from a sabermetrician and I only want to contribute something that would be of interest to your audience.

    It can be a short essay or a softer piece. Math is not a requirement. We have published all types of articles on the site. Looking forward to reading your piece.

    Absinthe: How long (or short) do you want these to be?

    It's all up to you. We left a minimum and maximum word counts out of this on purpose.

    Rich Garces had catlike reflexes and that's all I got.

    Cool idea. I'll see if I can come up with something at least readable. I dont expect to win, but it sounds like fun.

    Submitted mine earlier today on a topic I haven't seen discussed around here in terms of how we view certain aspects of stats, in light of recent technologies. Fun to research and discover, hopefully just as enjoyable to read if you like numbers as much as I do!

    I completely agree...I enjoyed the articles on the 1967 Sox and the AL MVP race very much.

    I really enjoyed all three articles and it was definitely a close, tough vote. I hope all three authors continue to write and submit articles to us. We will be a better site if you do.
