In another very close contest, the winner of the Fabulous Fielders nickname survey was........... the Wizard of Oz!! Once again, another Cardinal wins a group survey. The Vacuum Cleaner came in second and Scoops Carey was a distant third. Thanks to all of those who voted. By the way, I just discovered that there was an outfielder named Garry Maddox who won eight gold gloves with the Phillies and had the nickname of the Secretary of Defense (unfortunately, it was too late for the survey, but I wanted to give Garry a shout-out and show you his picture below).
And now that you're all excited, I'm announcing that the poll is now up for the third of the five nickname group surveys, about Proficient Pitchers (see part one and part two) nicknames. (There are no Cardinals.) The survey appears in the right column of my blog above the Blog Archive, and there are six choices. Please go ahead and vote. This survey will be followed by the surveys of the last two nickname groups, Booming Batters and All-Around Athletes.
Finally, when all of the group surveys are done, each winner will then be entered to compete in the unprecedented final best overall nickname survey.
Please tell all of your friends about the survey!!!!!!!!
