There were three winners in the
Home Run Payoff contest yesterday.
Each winning a Phillies gift pack in the fifth inning were:
Sean Riley, Swarthmore
James Mead, Levittown
Fred Shimer, Nottingham
The Daily News pays $1,000 for a home run hit in the Payoff inning and $10,000 for a grand slam. Contestants whose batters fail 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).
