Congratulations to Dave for winning the tickets to "An Evening with Brooks," the Babe Ruth Museum's fall gala at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Monday, Oct. 26.

There were 123 correct responses to the trivia question, and I picked Dave's e-mail using the Random Number Generator.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. If you'd like to purchase tickets to the event, you can call 410-727-1539, ext 3033 or visit the Babe Ruth Museum's Web site.When designing the question, the answer that I found was:

1. Brooks Robinson

2. Jim Palmer

3. Cal Ripken Jr.

4. Brian Roberts

5. Nick Markakis

However, several people also answered with the following response, which is also correct:

1. Brooks Robinson

2. Rich Dauer

3. Cal Ripken Jr.

4. Brian Roberts

5. Nick Markakis

Several guesses were incorrect, so I thought I'd explain why:

1. Mark Belanger -- He didn't meet the criteria for the contest because he played 54 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in his final season in 1982.
