This is fun and exciting news! Disney is giving amateur baseball pitchers all over the nation a chance to compete for a $1 million prize in the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest. The Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest is being held to celebrate the opening of Disney’s MILLION DOLLAR ARM, an incredible true story about two young men who went from never throwing a baseball to getting a Major League tryout.
Disney is offering nine people the opportunity to go to the World Premiere of Disney’s Million Dollar Arm, where they will each have three chances to make one 100 mph (or faster) strike for a $1 Million prize! On April 25th and 26th from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, anyone who is a legal resident of the 50 United States or D.C. and 18 years of age and older, and who has not played in the minor or major league baseball leagues, or any other professional baseball league, can participate in the qualifying round competition at Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, CA and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL and on April 26 only, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day at the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. The three contestants from each location who throw the fastest pitch will qualify for the final competition at the World Premiere of Disney’s Million Dollar Arm in Hollywood, CA on May 6th. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. For more details call 1 (800) DISNEY6 or email StudioSpecialEvents@Disney.com
I will be heading to LA in a few weeks to go to the premiere of the film and will be at this event watching live where someone could win $1,000,000! Now that’s exciting!
