The San Diego Padres have a pretty solid marketing department who has seemingly struck gold again, this time by offering up season tickets to any fan that can hit a home run at Petco Park.
Only problem? You get one swing (and only two pitches), so you better make it count.
- A winning hit is one that passes over the outfield fence of Petco Park, in fair territory, without bouncing on the field (a home run). The ultimate determination of whether a hit constitutes a home run shall be made by the Padres, in its sole and absolute discretion.
- Winners shall receive two (2) 2014 regular season tickets in the “Upper Infield” section (the “Prize”).
The seating location isn’t exactly the most prime territory, though, I don’t know many who’d complain about winning season tickets, let alone a set of two.
Unfortunately, for those of you who played Division 1 college baseball or professional baseball of any sort (read: Minor League player) – you’re not allowed to participate.
There’s no mention of the type of bat to be provided, though I assume it will be of the wooden variety - so good luck getting it out of the infield, participants.
