Hit a homer in Petco Park, win Padres season tickets

This is cool. Probably impossible, but cool. The Padres will give you two 2014 season tickets if you can hit a batting practice home run in Petco Park. The promotion is called “Swing for your Seats.”  The fine print:

  • A winning hit is one that passes over the outfield fence of Petco Park, in fair territory, without bouncing on the field (a home run). The ultimate determination of whether a hit constitutes a home run shall be made by the Padres, in its sole and absolute discretion.
  • Winners shall receive two (2) 2014 regular season tickets in the “Upper Infield” section (the “Prize”).
  • Participants who played Division I collegiate or professional baseball (whether major, minor or independent league) are not eligible for the Prize.

That last one just bummed Jose Canseco the heck out.
