There were four winners in the
Home Run Payoff contest yesterday.
Each winning a Phillies Gift Pack in the sixth inning were:
Thomas Blackwell Jr., Hatfield
Walt Tindall, Bethlehem
James McDermott, North Cape May, N.J.
Martha Kuczynski, 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 $4,000.
You can hear the Home Run Payoff inning during each Phillies broadcast on WPHT (1210-AM).
