    Tuffy Gosewisch's unique name has him in the semis.

    Minor League Baseball’s fifth annual Moniker Madness has reached the quarterfinals and Reading’s Tuffy Gosewisch is still alive.

    Lehigh Valley’s Tagg Bozied entered as a 16 seed and didn't make it out of the first round of voting, but Phillies fans still have a chance to make a push for some brotherly love in the final rounds.

    Seeded seventh in the Natty Nattress Bracket, Gosewisch -- the lowest seed remaining -- has surpassed Drew Smyly, Helpi Reyes and Zelous Wheeler in the voting and is currently up against No. 1 seed Beamer Weems of the Padres double-A affiliate, the San Antonio Missions.

    Voting for the quarterfinals ends on Thursday so cast your ballots while there’s time. Voting also enters you for a chance to win prizes from Minor League Baseball, just as shop gift cards and free subscriptions.
