Become a Crowd Hitter and get a chance to take swings in batting practice

A baseball game is one that has no time limit unlike hockey, football and soccer.  No one can predict which team will win or lose till the end of the game.  It is always more fun to watch a game that has a full crowd to cheer or jeer during the game which adds to the excitement.    There are unsold seats for games during the season for most teams.  This is where Alan Schwartz steps into the picture.  He is an ardent fan of baseball, and wishes to put forward his idea of baseball promotion called Crowd Hitter in order to increase attendance at professional baseball games.

Alan Schwartz wants professional baseball to give baseball fans the opportunity to participate in batting practice.  This gives the fans a chance to take swings from the batting practice pitcher.  Anyone who is fourteen years or older would be eligible to become a Crowd Hitter.  Example:  Those attending the Monday game have to fill an entry form and the winner will be announced in the sixth inning and be the last one to take batting practice for the Tuesday game.  As part of the baseball promotions, the Crowd Hitter will also get two tickets to the Tuesday game, a home team cap, shirt, bat and a home team autographed baseball.

The Crowd Hitter event would be captured by the team website.  The Crowd Hitter event can also be shown between one of the innings on the team’s video score board.

Smart phones, internet, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, StumpleUpon, Digg, and Delicious are all social media outlets that have paired with the Crowd Hitter promotional event.  So along with the baseball news, this promotional event can also be viewed by a number of people.  This can help generate new fans to attend the baseball game and increase attendance.
