How’d you like to win a free Fast Arm from www.fastarm.com? It would be pretty sweet wouldn’t it? Heck yeah it would!
All you have to do is name the mystery former college baseball player I’m thinking of. Throughout the day I’ll add clues on this page, responding to select questions from Twitter from people who have both @cblineup and @fast_arm mentioned in their inquiry. Makes sense?
