The contest

In a heated battle before the start of batting practice on Monday, D-backs bullpen catcher Jeff Motuzas and clubhouse assistant Jimmy Garrett squared off in a licorice-eating contest.

These two have faced each other before in a hot dog eating contest back in 2005 just prior to a ballgame in Washington, D.C.

Motuzas got the best of this matchup consuming 71 licorice strands to Garrett’s 68. The result, though, was not without some controversy as there was some confusion about the rules.
