Hit one out of Petco Park, win two season tickets to Padres
Now, this is a cool promotion.
The San Diego Padres are offering fans the chance to win season tickets by hitting a home run at Petco Park.
Show up to the Padres ballpark on March 15, hit one out and take home two seasons tickets for 2014.
However, you only get one swing and you can’t be a ringer.
Here are some of the details from the Padres' website (full info here).
1. Each participant will have the opportunity to swing at one pitch from the pitching machine set up by the Padres. Each participant may remain at the plate for no more than two pitches. If the participant does not swing at either pitch, participant's turn is over.
5. All participants must wear a batting helmet provided by the Padres and may only use a bat provided by the Padres.
6. 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.
7. Winners shall receive two (2) 2014 regular season tickets in the "Upper Infield" section (the "Prize").
8. Participants who played Division I collegiate or professional baseball (whether major, minor or independent league) are not eligible for the Prize.
