A wild first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is in the books, and with it, the standings in the 2015 Curve Bracket Challenge have started to take shape.

Up for grabs are a pair of tickets to the Curve’s home opener against the Akron RubberDucks on April 16 at PNG Field for anyone that finishes ahead of our Box Office Manager, Steffan.

Well, out of nearly 350 entries, 205 of you are currently sitting in front of Steffan in the standings. But don’t count him out just yet … Both of his championship game picks, are still alive.

Also up for grabs, our three grand prizes: A suite for a night, VIP picnic passes for three celebrity appearances, and tickets to select 2015 Curve bobblehead nights for the top three finishers in the final standings. As it sits right now, four contestants are tied for the top spot.

Sixteen teams remain in the NCAA Tournament, with the next round beginning on Thursday. The Final Four will be set by the end of the weekend.

Last week, things were a little shaken up in Curve, Pa.

Our beloved mascot, Steamer, took a bit of a tumble while racing out to see his new four wheeler.

There was an amazing outpouring of support for Steamer from all across the country.

Steamer injured his left wrist, and it looks like it could keep him down for 6-8 weeks. Here is an official release from the Curve.

The big guy went in for surgery on Tuesday morning.

For Steamer, there is a long road to recovery ahead. We will keep you posted here on the CurveBall Blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages.
