Welcome to the Ding Dong Challenge, a game were we try and correctly predict who will hit the most home runs in a given week, keep score throughout the entire season, and win a free, awesome t-shirt.

Well, here we are, the end of the Ding Dong Challenge. For 27 weeks we’ve been tracking dingers and homers, moonshots and yards, dongs and bombs, all leading up to one person winning the greatest t-shirt any human can own.

Without further ado, it’s time for the final standings:

Congrats to GratefulMatt for bringing home the championship this year! I thought I could have had him but I just didn’t put forward enough points in order to claim the victory. It was a hard fought battle and the right man won. Well done sir!

Thank you everyone for playing! It was a ton of fun this year and that’s all thanks to you guys for being the ones to make this happen. Hope to see you all for next year’s battle for the t-shirt.
