Imagine joining FanDuel on Thursday, playing in the $25,000 MLB Grand Slam on Friday and then waking up to $7500 in your account on Saturday. Sounds too good to be true, right? Not if you’re FanDuel user thruthewickets. Yes, thruthewickets joined FanDuel on Thursday, entered several amazing teams into the Grand Slam on Friday, and wound up not just winning the $5000 first place Grand Slam prize, he also came in second too ($2500). Not bad for one day’s work.

So who did the winning team consist of? P – Felix Hernandez, C – J.P. Arencibia, 1B – Adam Dunn, 2B – Gordon Beckham, 3B – Placido Polanco, SS – Hanley Ramirez, LF – Adam Lind, CF – Carlos Gonzalez, RF – Jose Bautista. That team produced the winning score of 86 points.  His 2nd place team scored 82 points.

The remaining top 10 finishers – aside from hockey specialist and chat room regular, hendog – featured quite a few new users. They are as follows:

3. jmp5029 ($1700 – 75 points)
4. leftybob721 ($1150 – 73.5 points)
5. hendog ($850 – 73.25 points)
6. jmp5029 ($675 – 72.41 points)
7. joker_49024 ($525 – 72.33 points)
8. sleekgreek ($400 – 71.33 points)
9. boxcars ($400 – 70.75 points)
10. gruntz ($400 – 70.66 points)

Thanks again to all for playing, and be sure to check out these upcoming games.
