PRESS RELEASE – The Coastal Plain League (pictures courtesy of Pat Grecinger) announced today that it will be holding a Five Millionth Fan contest starting Sunday in its ballparks. The CPL is celebrating its 15th season this summer and is inching closer to surpassing the five million fans mark.
To help celebrate, the CPL is having all fans entering its ballparks fill out a special CPL Five Million Fan Contest registration card starting Sunday, July 24 and running nightly until the league officially reaches five million fans.
Fans will fill out the registration cards and submit those into each team’s front office. Once the CPL reaches five million fans, the league office will collect all registration cards from that night’s games and put them in a barrel. The CPL league office will then select a CPL-themed VIP to pick out one registration card from the barrel, and that lucky fan will be officially named the Coastal Plain League’s Five Millionth Fan!
The lucky fan will win several prizes, including a VIP trip for two to the 2012 Coastal Plain League All-Star Game. At the 2012 CPL All-Star Game, the Five Millionth Fan and a guest will be treated like VIPs with access to the league’s special VIP tent during the Fan Fest, Home Run Derby, and All-Star Game, have VIP seats at the All-Star luncheon, meet the CPL All-Star players and coaches, be honored throughout the two-day event as the CPL’s Five Millionth Fan and have the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the All-Star Game.
