We’ve come a long way since the BBQ Best Name Bracket opened about a week ago with 64 tremendous baseball names from the distant past. Over 50,000 individual votes have been cast since the first 32 match-ups were opened, and after a smattering of upsets and dominant performances from higher seeds alike, America has narrowed the field down to four. The results:

REGION 1

1. Ten Million (55%) vs. 3. Van Lingle Mungo (45%)

The pre-tourney favorite to win it all had his first real test in Mungo, and his % dropped another 7 points from the previous round. It was still more than enough to defeat VLM and punch his ticket to the Final Four.

REGION 2

13. Dizzy Nutter (42%) vs. 2. Shadrack McHooveter (58%)

The fan favorite Nutter’s miracle run comes to an end, as Shadrack moves on with the highest % of votes among the four winning teams this round.

REGION 3

9. Boots Poffenberger (48%) vs. 3. Pretzels Getzien (52%)

The #9 seed had one hell of a run to this point, but his amusing belligerent alcoholism detailed so eloquently in his description could only take him so far. Pretzels > Poff.

REGION 4

1. Orlando Zgraggen (54%) vs. 11. Lil Stoner (46%)

Enter the Zgraggen, Lil Stoner did, and eliminated he was.
