And one final parting fact: In my last Random Facts column I mentioned that Tim Wakefield and Derek Lowe had never thrown a single toss-up to a myGameBalls member. Congratulations to Nick Pelescak, who somehow convinced Lowe to toss him a ball on September 7, 2010.

We're still waiting on Mr. Wakefield.
