A-Rod Contest Background
With Alex Rodriguez only three home runs away from the milestone home run number 600, we at SeatGeek have taken a particular interest in predicting where the ball may land. The home run ball may be worth upwards of $100,000, but also makes an invaluable souvenir for any Yankees fan that catches it.
Given the desire for the ball, we have reached out to our friends at Hit Tracker to get a specific prediction, down to the very seat, of where the most likely spot for Alex Rodriguez to hit home run number 600 in Yankee Stadium is. (For more in depth coverage of the prediction, check back on the SeatGeek Blog soon).
We have coined the aforementioned seat "The Money Seat". If you want the best chance to catch A-Rod's 600th HR ball, you need to be sitting in this seat.
What seat is it, you ask? Well, that's up to you guys to guess, at first...
Here is the contest: follow us on Twitter @SeatGeek and in a mention to us, give us your predictions, OR Like us on facebook and post your prediction on our wall. We are operating under the assumption that A-Rod hits number 600 in this upcoming nine game home stand, so we want to hear your predictions for which section in Yankee Stadium 'The Money Seat" is in. In other words, which section has the highest probability of the ball landing there.
This is what you must tweet (fill in the blank with your actual guess): Entered @SeatGeek A-Rod 600th HR contest for a free tee / tickets*. My "Money Seat" prediction is in Section [ ] http://ow.ly/2bnFu
Here are the sections you can choose from (in number order):
Section 103 Section 132 Section 201 Section 206 Section 235
Section 104 Section 133 Section 202 Section 207 Section 236
Section 105 Section 134 Section 203 Section 233A Section 237
Section 106 Section 135 Section 204 Section 233B Section 238
Section 107 Section 136 Section 205 Section 234 Section 239
The winner will be randomly selected amongst the correct section guesses, and will win an Alex Rodriguez player tee (or MLB player tee of their choice, if they don't want an A-Rod one)! Note, if we reach 100 participants, we will give away $100 worth of MLB tickets or concert tickets of your choosing.
You must Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter in order to win. No duplicate entries. The contest will run from now until Thursday at midnight, PT.
Depending on the popularity of this contest, we may then hold another contest asking for your predictions for which section the ball actually lands in (as opposed to which section has the highest probability of the ball landing there). That contest will take place from time TBD until A-Rod hits his 600th home run.
In the case that Alex Rodriguez doesn't hit number 600 during the Yankees home stand, the contest will be altered for participants to guess the section, row and seat in the away parks. The Yankees play at Progressive Field in Cleveland and Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay before returning back to New York.
Good luck, spread the word, and don't forget to visit SeatGeek for all of your concert and sporting event needs!
