ThinkBlueLA Spring Training Home Run Contest

To honor and celebrate Dodger legend Fernando Valenzuela’s recent induction into the Caribbean Baseball Hall of Fame, ThinkBlueLA will give away a Fernando bobble head to the first person who correctly guesses the first Dodger to hit the first spring training home of 2013.

Who will hit the first Dodgers home run this spring? The first person to guess correctly will win this Fernando bobble head.

Which Dodger player will hit the first home run this spring? Be the first person to guess correctly and win this Fernando bobble head.

Indicate your guess in the comments section below and only one guess will be allowed per person. If more than one person’s name appears in your comment, your submission will be disqualified and deleted.

All guesses must be submitted before the first pitch of the first spring training game, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 1:05 PM (MST) against the Chicago White Sox at Camelback Ranch.

In the event that more than one person picks the correct Dodger to hit the first spring training home run, the person who submitted their guess first (as indicated by the date and time of their submission) will win the bobble head. In other words, it might be a good idea to look over the previous guesses before making your own – I’m just sayin’. Keep in mind that a number of the top-tier Dodger minor leagues play in these spring training games, too

Also, if no one picks the first Dodger to hit a home run, we will carry the contest over to the second Dodger to hit a home run, and so on, until we have a winner.

The winner will be notified by email unless, of course, they are present when it happens, in which case I will simply hand them the Fernando bobble head.

    Looks like you might be right, 53:

    “The star of batting practice was 22-year-old Cuban prospect Yasiel Puig, who drew oohs from onlookers. Almost everything the promising-but-unpolished outfielder hit was hard and on the line, including several deep home runs.

    Chris Capuano was shagging balls in left field while Puig was hitting and acknowledged, “I moved out of the way a couple of times instead of catching him. I mean, he was hitting the ball hard. You can definitely see the raw power.”
