San Diego Padres promotion: hit a homer, win season tickets

  • David Whitlock

The San Diego Padres have certainly come up with a promotion that’s both fun, and potentially rewarding for participants.  Major leaguers make hitting BP home runs easy, now fans will get their chance to see if they can do the same.  The Padres are running a promotion for fans, who will get one swing (two pitches) to hit one out of Petco Park.  The official Twitter feed notification:

As you might imagine there are some rules.  Former pro players and Division I college players not eligible.  The ballclub provides the bat, you win tickets in addition to the ones you already purchased.  And Petco Park is considered one of the toughest venues to hit the ball out (not a rule, but a fact)!

But did you hear about the part where you get to go into Petco Park and take a real live swing with a real live bat in the actual batters box????  Sounds like all participants are winners to me!  Kudos to the Padres marketing department!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
