The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state, territory, provincial and local laws, rules and regulations. Void outside the Eligible Territory and where prohibited or restricted by law, rule or regulation.

HOW TO ENTER: The Sweepstakes begins at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on July 9, 2021 and ends at 6:00 p.m. ET on July 13, 2021 during the hours that 2021 PLAY BALL PARK ("PLAY BALL PARK") is open to the public ("Entry Period"). You may enter the Sweepstakes by either of the following methods: (1) downloading the free MLB Ballpark app and registering for the Experience Pass via the app; or (2) registering for the Experience Pass onsite at PLAY BALL PARK (each, an "Entrant"). While in attendance at PLAY BALL PARK during the Entry Period, Entrants may check in at designated stations within PLAY BALL PARK (each, a "Station"), including MLB Stations, photo Stations, and Stations sponsored by MLB sponsors ("MLB Sponsors"), which will record Entrant's Experience Pass ("Check In"). One (1) point or badge, as determined by Sponsor (each, a "Point") will be earned for each Check In at a unique Station during PLAY BALL PARK; only one (1) Check In per Station during each day of PLAY BALL PARK will be recognized to earn Points for the Sweepstakes. No other method of entry will be accepted. The number of Points earned will determine in which prize category of random drawings ("Tier") the Entrant will be entered.

All information submitted online by Entrants is subject to, and will be treated in a manner consistent with, MLB's Terms of Use accessible at: mlb.com/tou and Privacy Policy accessible at: mlb.com/privacy. Entrants must fully complete and submit all non-optional data requested on the registration page to be eligible. Incomplete and/or inaccurate entries are void. All online registrations must include a valid email address for the Entrant. Online Entrants to the Sweepstakes may be given the option to receive (a) commercial email from Sponsor and/or other MLB Entities, and/or (b) mobile text messages and updates from Sponsor and/or other MLB Entities; however, eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes is not dependent upon Entrant's consent to receive such emails and/or mobile text messages and updates and consenting to receive such emails and/or mobile text messages and updates will not impact any Entrant's chances of winning. Standard messaging rates apply to mobile text messages and updates. Check with your mobile service provider for more information.

RANDOM DRAWING: The potential winners of each Tier of prizes in the Sweepstakes will be selected periodically during PLAY BALL PARK by random drawing as detailed below (each, a "Random Drawing"). Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared the official winners of the Sweepstakes (each, a "Winner" and collectively, the "Winners"). The decisions of Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning a prize ("Prize") depend on the total number of Entrants and Check Ins for the applicable Random Drawing.

  • Tier 1: All Entrants are entered in the Random Drawing for a chance to win a Magnet, Stress Ball, All-Star Game Pen, Mini Pennant, Temporary Tattoos, Mini Foam Finger, PLAY BALL PARK Keychain (Prize Nos. 3-8, 9 and 12) or a comparable prize at Sponsor's discretion.
