Logic Problem Solution:
Name That Team

From the introduction, the winning name for the new Ocean City minor league team was picked from four finalists. By clue 3, the four finalists are the winning entry, the name Blue Crabs, and the names suggested by Tony and Ball. By clue 5, Chris didn't win the contest and didn't enter Blue Crabs; he is Ball in clue 3. By clue 6, Pitcher didn't win the naming contest and isn't finalist Tony; in clue 3, then, Pitcher submitted Blue Crabs for the team name. Since Jeff isn't finalist Fields or Runner (4), he is Pitcher. Then Ben had the winning entry. His surname is Fields, and Tony is Runner (2). Neither Ben (2) nor Tony Runner (7) suggested Marlins, so Chris Ball did. By clue 1, Tony Runner entered Seahawks. Ben Fields won the naming contest for the new Ocean City Dune. The results of the contest are as follows:

• Ocean City Dune, Ben Fields
• Marlins, Chris Ball
• Blue Crabs, Jeff Pitcher
• Seahawks, Tony Runner
