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