SwampDogs Announce Grand Slam Inning

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The Fayetteville SwampDogs are pleased to announce a new promotion to begin immediately at “The Swamp” – the Grand Slam Inning presented by Fayetteville Powersports.

During each remaining home game during the 2015 season at “The Swamp,” if the SwampDogs hit a Grand Slam home run in a specified inning, a name will be drawn and that fan will win a new vehicle courtesy of Fayetteville Powersports.

Fans can sign up to be a winner at the Cape Fear Valley Health Fan Stand, and it costs nothing to enter your name.

“I’m excited for the opportunity for our fans to get the opportunity to walk away with a brand new vehicle from our tremendous partners at Fayetteville Powersports,” said SwampDogs general manager Jeremy Aagard. “This promotion is more than a home run, it’s a grand slam.”
