Texas Rangers Fan Wins Season Tickets After Hitting a Dinger (Video)
The Texas Rangers held their “Swing For Your Seats” contest on Saturday, which offered fans a chance to win free season tickets. All they had to do was place a 25-percent deposit on a half- or full-season ticket package, then hit a home run off a pitching machine at the Rangers’ home park in Arlington.
Twenty fans took part in the challenge, which gave each competitor three swings with a wooden bat against a pitching machine that was throwing the ball approximately 70 mph. Nineteen of those fans were left having to pay full-pop for their tickets next season, but not Byron Anderson, who made the most of his opportunity:

With that dinger, Byron turned a half-season package for two terrace seats into four box seats. And it’s all free!!!

Forget the tickets. Give this guy a contract!
