Nice way to mark a milestone: Today the summer-collegiate Coastal Plain League launches a Five Millionth Fan contest in all league ballparks, as the circuit will collect registration cards from fans nightly to crown a winner.
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.
