The five grand prize winners will get to meet Kevin Millar and Chris Rose in Kansas City, the site of the 2012 All-Star Game, on July 9. Winners also receive a four-day, three-night trip to attend the All-Star Game festivities, including tickets to the game on July 12, transportation and accommodations.
Winners also get a pair of tickets to MLB’s All-Star FanFest and State Farm Home Run Derby on July 9.
