Play the Indoor Four Contest for June!
Thanks to a five-way tie for the May lead, the top of the leaderboard is quite congested, but Ace of Bases and Conley lead the way with six points apiece.
You know how it works. Anyone can do it. So make your selection, sit back and make your case for the year-end $100 Best Buy gift card!
On to the obligatory rules:
Spitter staff members are ineligible.
Each contestant is limited to one selection per month.
Selected players are eligible for that day’s games if they were selected before the first game of said day. If picked after games have begun, they will be eligible the following day.
If your nomination is injured during the month, you can choose a replacement, but must stick with that replacement player for the duration of said month even if your original choice returns from the disabled list. Should your replacement player go on the DL, you can again pick a replacement.
Only officially scored inside-the-park home runs are accepted, no creative scoring where a bunt and sniper-like throws lead to a trek around the bases.
How the scoring works:
First contestant with an Indoor Four for the month: 5 points
Inside-the-park home run: 4 points
Triples: 1 point
Monthly points leader: 1 point
Greg Gagne Special (two Indoor Fours in one game): 10 points
Ichiro Special (All-Star Game Indoor Four): 5.1 points

A $100 shopping spree on The Spitter’s dime hangs in the balance, so as Harry Caray once said, “Let me hear ya!”
Make your choice, good luck and thanks for playing!
