There were five winners in the
Home Run Payoff contest last night.
Each winning a Phillies Gift Pack in the third inning were:
Steve Austin, Aston, Pa.
Carol Matty, Kimberton, Pa.
Barbara Forestell, Brookhaven, Pa.
Bennie Hudson, Philadelphia
Frank Jacquindo, Philadelphia
The Daily News pays $1,000 for a home run hit in the Payoff inning and $10,000 for a grand slam. Contestants whose batter fails to hit a home run receive a gift pack, which includes a variety of Phillies-related items.
This season, the Daily News has paid out $3,000.
You can hear the Home Run Payoff inning during each Phillies broadcast on WPHT (1210-AM).
