The Media Guide contest is over. I’ll be emailing the three winners this afternoon. As for the answers.
1. We started with an easy one. Derek Jeter was the High School Player of the Year in 1992 when he was a senior at Kalamazoo Central High School. He had slash stats of .508/.637/.831. Is that good? He actually hit .557 as a junior.
2. It was left-handed reliever Boone Logan who once lost a cow-milking contest in Los Angeles. He had debuted with the White Sox the year before, but 2007 was his first nearly full season in the big leagues.
3. While Joe DiMaggio was away, first baseman Nick Etten who wore No. 5 from 1943 to 1945. He kept the number proud, gaining MVP votes each of those three seasons and leading the league with 22 home runs in 1944. In 1946 he switched to No. 9 and hit just .232. He was out of the big leagues after 1947.
Just a reminder, if you didn’t win, you can still purchase a Yankees Media Guide at Yankee Stadium, by calling 1-800-GO-YANKS (800-469-2657) or by going online to yankees.com/mediaguide.

UPDATE, 12:37 p.m.: Congratulations Chris Perez, P.J. Miller and Erik Didriksen. They were the first to get all three answers correct.
