It’s almost September and that means the Major League Baseball postseason is just around the corner. The 2018 World Series is set to begin on October 23, and a potential Game 7 is scheduled for October 31. Even the Emblem Source, (the provider of all on-field MLB commemorative patches), released photos of both the 2018 World Series and 2018 postseason jersey patches. With the World Series being weeks away it is important to get a head start on getting contest insurance from Interactive Promotions Group. You can either run a Fan Participation Promotion, Conditional Rebate or a Team Achievement Promotion.
A Fan Participation Promotion would be where you pick one lucky contestant at your game watching location (restaurant, bar, fall festival etc.) and give them a chance to take home the grand prize, like $10,000 cash! You can pick from a lucky target toss, a home run swing or 3 strikes contests. In order to win the grand prize the lucky fan would have to complete the following:
Target Toss: 1 ball, 1 pitch through a predetermined template hole from the pitcher’s mound (60 feet 6 inches)
Home Run Swing: 3 swings out of 5 pitches and hit one ball out of the park!
3 Strikes You Win: 3 balls, 3 pitches through a predetermined template from the pitcher’s mound (60 feet 6 inches).
A Conditional Rebate would be best run for someone who is looking to run a big sale at their retail location leading up to the start of the final World Series series. If the team you pick ends up winning the World Series then your sales volume would be reimbursed by Interactive Promotions Group and all of your customers get their previous purchases for free!
A Team Achievement Promotion could either be run for one lucky fan to win or as a rebate promotion. You can pick from the following contests and if the achievement occurs during your pre-selected game then your fan or fans go home a winner:
Back-to-Back Home Run During an Inning
Grand Slam During the Game
Grand Slam During an Inning
7 Runs in the 7th Inning
