As early as I was with the April version, I am that late with June version...

So without further ado, back for the 4th year, I give you..THE HIT STREAK CONTEST- June!

Basic rules- pick a player, if he gets a hit, you are good. If for whatever reason he doesn't get a hit that day, you will get a strike (to include a DNP or a rainout). This time around, we will go with three strikes and you are out, rather than one and done. And there will be no minimum number of games needed to be played to win. Once you have selected a player, you can not choose him again. Your pick must be made prior to the FIRST GAME of the day. Pretty basic stuff. You may use a player in a doubleheader, with both games counting as "that" day's game.

Nothing new in terms of rules from last year:
1 - once you get a third strike, you are eliminated rather than one and done.
2 - I am hosting a side contest for those interested. I am participating in the contest and anyone who would like to challenge me is welcome. If you are interested in the challenge, just note it with your first pick. If you beat me, you can pick any card off of my Blog Tradelist as a prize (GU's/Autos etc. not included). If I beat you, I get to pick any card off your Trade Page. Max Value of $5 card. The side contest is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY.

**Please edit your initial post with your picks**
**Please include the players team name with your pick** CAN NOT EMPHASIZE THIS ONE ENOUGH!!!!

Bumping up the prizes again this year.

The winner of the contest will get to choose one card from the A list, one card from the B list, one card from the C list and one card from the D list:

A LIST:
BOBBY JENKS:08 TOPPS HERITAGE CHROME SN1959
HIROKI KURODA:10 TOPPS CHROME X-FRACTOR DODGERS
2013 BOWMAN CHROME X-FRACTOR - KEVIN YOUKILIS YANKEES
2007 BOWMAN CHROME X-FRACTOR SN250 - GARRETT ATKINS

B LIST (AU):
DANIEL SCHLERETH:09 TOPPS CAREER QUEST D-BACKS
2002 TOPPS PRISTINE ON CARD - DEWON BRAZELTON DEVIL RAYS
DALLAS MCPHERSON:05 UPPER DECK ARTIFACTS AUTOFACTS SN599 ANGELS
JIMMY GOBBLE:03 DONRUSS CLASSICS SIGNIFICANT SIGNATURES/500 ROYALS

C LIST (GU):
2003 TOPPS 205 - RAFAEL PALMEIRO RANGERS
MIGUEL TEJADA - 03 FLEER SPLENDID SPLINTERS KNOTHOLE GANG
ANDRUW JONES:02 FLEER PLATINUM FENCE BUSTERS BAT BRAVES
TRAVIS HAFNER:07 ULTRA SWING KINGS INDIANS

D LIST (GU):
CASEY KOTCHMAN:05 SPX SN99
GARRETT ATKINS:07 UD SPECTRUM SN199 ROCKIES
DONTRELLE WILLIS:06 Bowman Heritage
MAGGLIO ORDONEZ:03 ABSOLUTE 2003 PLAYER COLLECTION BAT SN75

Good luck - the contest officially starts Monday June 1st.

And, as promised, I have decided to take the game up a notch for the participants. Since this is a hit streak contest, time to honor the two longest on record in MLB. Anyone who goes 45 games without missing will get a Pete Rose AU card and anyone who can go 57 games will get a Joe DiMaggio card (I probably can't afford an AU card, but will get you something nice). I will carry it month to month, longest streak last year was 11 games.

To address concerns from last year - I will try and keep tabs on when picks are posted, but this is really more about the honor system.

Please start your player list with either June 1 or Game 1 - it will make it easier for me to track on a daily basis.

June 1 - Mike Trout/Angels - HIT
June 2 - Adrian Gonzalez/Dodgers - HIT
June 3 - Dustin Pedroia/Red Sox - HIT
June 4 - Shin Soo Choo/Rangers - HIT
June 5 - Giancarlo Stanton/Marlins - HIT
June 6 - Justin Upton/Padres - HIT
June 7 - Prince Fielder/Rangers - HIT
June 8 - Kolten Wong/Cardinals - HIT
June 9 - Mike Moustakas/Royals - HIT
June 10 - Miguel Cabrera/Tigers - STRIKE ONE
June 11 - Dee Gordon/Marlins - STRIKE TWO
June 12 - Andrew McCutchen/Pirates
