You have decided that this bracket will not be filled with as many upsets as March Madness, but there were a couple of surprises.
The 11th-seeded, Tino Martinez, upset 6th-seeded Alex Rodriguez in a battle that came down to the wire. Martinez narrowly beat out A-Rod with 52% of your votes. He was the second-highest seed to reach the 2nd round.
The highest was 12th-seeded, Willie Bloomquist, who beat out 5th-seeded, Julio Cruz. Sparking Bloomquist’s victory was likely his response to being part of the tournament.
In other exciting match ups, 8th-seeded, Dave Valle edged out 9th-seeded, Dave Henderson, by one vote, 6th-seeded, Jim Presley, beat out 11th-seeded, Randy Winn, by one vote, and 7th-seeded, Da-ho Lee, bested 10th-seeded Rick Griffin by one vote.
On the flip side, there were also many blowouts. 3rd-seeded, Kyle Seager, 3rd-seeded, Dan Wilson, and top-seeded, Felix Hernandez took every single vote in their matchups. Nine other battles that had the higher seed took over 90% of your vote.
