    Former Seton Hall standouts and current minor league baseball players Zack Granite (Staten Island, N.Y.) and Giuseppe Papaccio (Nutley, N.J.) are among 75 players featured in MiLB.com's Moniker Madness contest.

    The contest asked the fans, "Who has the best name in the minor leagues?"

    Visit the Moniker Madness page and two minor leaguers will be randomly selected for fans to vote on. Once a selection has been made, two more randomly chosen players will be available to be voted on.

    Currently, both Granite and Papaccio rank in the contest's top-10.

    The 2013 Moniker Madness champion will be announced on Thursday, August 29.
