2014 Baseball Challenge Final Recap
With all of the awards being handed out last week, the 2014 Baseball Challenge is officially over!
Before we get to the overall winners including the Challenger set to take home the $500 grand prize, let's announce the winner of "Awards" portion of the Challenge...
After adding up all of the correct predictions for both league MVPs, Cy Youngs, Rookies and Managers of the Year there was one clear winner who impressively picked 4 of the 8 awards winners EIGHT months ago!!! The winner of this section of the contest and the $100 that comes with it is....
He correctly tabbed Mike Trout as AL MVP, Matt Williams as NL Manager, Clayton Kershaw as Cy Young but was also the ONLY Challenger to pick Kershaw to win the first MVP for a pitcher in the NL since Bob Gibson in 1968!
There were 12 others who tied with 3 correct picks (30 points) but the savvy Kershaw pick earns Clutch94
the cash in a couple of different ways...
Now to announce the OVERALL winners...
After adding up ALL points earned from the regular season, playoffs and awards, the OVERALL WINNER of the 2014 Baseball Challenge and the $500 Grand Prize is...
Not only did he have the most points this season, he actually had the most points in Baseball Challenge HISTORY!!! He was near the top of the leaderboard in each of the 3 parts of the challenge, earning 35 points in the regular season, 41 in the playoffs and 30 more in correct award picks! Because of his efforts he actually ends up with the most prize money also in any one year...$600 total when you add in his playoff win! CONGRATULATIONS!!
But we aren't done yet...prizes also go to the 2nd and 3rd place finishers overall:
