The Lowell Riddler: Riddle #20 Solved!

The Lowell Riddler has been hiding medallions all over town this year and awarding prizes of gift certificates to those who find them. While the Riddler is taking a hiatus, they went out with a bang — offering their biggest prize pack ever.

Congratulations goes to Mark Weaver for cracking the clues. Here’s what he told the Riddler:

“Clue #1 had me at Burch Field…starting line-up, etc, and there was an old scoreboard lying on its face there (the sign you can’t read). Then last night it hit me- baseball….starters half the time in the outfield….and then the clincher was the Some feet below clue…dugout. Clue #2 verified it all and focused the search at Creekside Park dugouts. Then it was a matter of crawling around and looking under benches near 3rd base.”.
