Redbirds, Sissy's Log Cabin to Give Away a Rolex on Saturday, June 29
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - For a sport played without a time-of-game clock, the Memphis Redbirds baseball game at AutoZone Park on Saturday, June 29 will have a lot of people staring at their watches and agonizing over every second.
That's because the Redbirds and Sissy's Log Cabin will be giving away a Rolex, valued at $5,400, to the fan who guesses the time the game will end the closest.
The average Triple-A Baseball game in 2019 has taken 3:05 to play. With a 6:35 p.m. start on the 29th... and considering who's pitching... carry the one... let's see...
"This is a really fun way to engage with our fans and give away a fantastic prize," said Redbirds President Craig Unger. "The last few innings on the 29th are going to be really stressful, both for the Redbirds as they try to finish a win, and for the fans who are minutes away from winning a Rolex."
"We are proud to partner with the Redbirds and show our support for Memphis' hometown baseball team," said Michael Bohner, Vice President at Sissy's Log Cabin in Memphis. "We hope this promotion will bring additional excitement to game day and help pack in fans as we cheer on the Redbirds to victory."
Before first pitch on the night of the game, fans will register inside the main gates to the stadium and log their guess of what time the game will end in HH:MM:SS format. The Rolex will be given to the winning fan on the field before the Terminix Fireworks Show caps the night.
Tickets are available at www.memphisredbirds.com/tickets, at the AutoZone Park Box Office, or by calling (901) 721-6000. With the purchase of a specialty ticket for that night, fans can add to their bobblehead collection with a special double bobblehead celebrating two of the best humanitarians in the game, Yadier Molina and Roberto Clemente.
