In MLB.com's traditional Beat the Streak game, participants try to establish a virtual "hitting streak" by picking one or two big leaguers per day, with a 57-game streak garnering a $5.6 million grand prize.

In MLB.com's traditional Beat the Streak game, participants try to establish a virtual "hitting streak" by picking one or two big leaguers per day, with a 57-game streak garnering a $5.6 million grand prize.

But thanks to Beat the Streak in a Day, you could win the ultimate cash prize in a single day's action on XXXX.

Beat the Streak in a Day works the same way as traditional BTS, except for one not-so-small difference: Fans can make all 57 picks at once. Get them all right, and you can call yourself a millionaire.

Those who want to play can do so two ways:

1. Eligible fans looking to flaunt their baseball acumen can pick the "Select Your Own" option, which allows for all 57 picks to be made by the participant.

2. Entry can come with just an easy button push, too, as "Quick Pick" will choose 57 out of the top big leaguers based on several different criteria: Top 2016 batting average, most hits in '16 and highest hits-to-games-played rate in '16. The final decision rests with you, though, as you can change any or all of your selections.

Fans who wish to join the quick-hitting fun can do so until XXXX p.m. ET on XXXX. Just visit MLB.com/btscontest or the Beat the Streak app to sign up.

Regardless of the game's outcome, someone will leave a winner. If no one bats 1.000 (57-for-57), a $500 MLB.com Shop gift certificate will be awarded to the fan who comes closest.
