If you live in the Hickory area and love baseball, then you probably know the Hickory Crawdads baseball team. They return to Hickory tonight with a way for fans to win big money at the game.
The 2013 Hickory Crawdads are on pace to shatter the franchise's single season home run record. The team is only four homers away from surpassing the current record of 135. At the current pace of 1.4 home runs per game, it's anticipated the record-breaking home run will happen during the upcoming home stand, tonight through Tues. July 23. The Crawdads are giving fans the chance to cash in on the record-breaking home run.
When fans arrive at LP Frans Stadium, they'll have the opportunity to fill out an entry form with their name and the name of the player they think will hit the record-breaking 136th home run. When the record is tied, the Crawdads will draw one name each inning.
If the player they selected hits the 136th home run in their inning, the lucky fan will win $1,360! If the record-breaking home run is hit in their inning, but not by the player they selected, the fan will not go home empty handed, they will receive a prize pack valued at more than $100. The contest will occur every night until the record is broken.
If your name is not chosen don't worry, there will be another opportunity to win. The Crawdads will bring out the promotion again as they close in on the South Atlantic League record of 173 home runs in one season.
