Can you identify the date of the game depicted in the photo below? If so, you can win a set of officially licensed Major League Baseball headphones manufactured by BiGR Audio (on Twitter at @bigraudio), a provider of innovative electronics componentry. BiGR Audio originally released four Special Edition MLB sets of headphones: The 2011 World Series Champions San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees (see the photo below). For these sets, the soft leather band of each headphone is not-only hand-stitched, but emulates the glove of a big league first baseman. They have since released all 30 MLB teams, each uniquely designed to showcase the classic, authentic colors and logos of their respective baseball clubs.
If you don’t wind up winning a set, the headphones are also available for purchase at Best Buy stores, BestBuy.com, and BiGR Audio’s website, www.bigraudio.com, where they are currently on sale for only $49.99 plus shipping (use coupon code “bigryanks” after clicking “Add to Cart” through the following link: http://bigraudio.com/products/
Although at first glance it might seem impossible to discern when the action took place, there are enough clues in the photo to figure it out. So, get your magnifying glasses out and be sure to search every inch of the photo for a clue. Then, once you’ve determined the correct date, post it in the comments section below (be sure to include a valid email when filling out the form). The first person to come up with the right answer will win a set of headphones adorned with their favorite team’s logo. And, if you get stumped, feel free to leave behind whatever evidence you were able to uncover. Only one person will win the prize, but remember, baseball is a team sport.
Finally, if you don’t win this time, additional mystery photo contests (h/t to the Humbug Journal at the old Baseball Toaster) will be held periodically over the next few months (and likely with another baseball-themed prize), so keep checking back for your chance to crack the case.
