WINNER SELECTION:

Only eligible entries received prior to the MLB scheduled start time of the 10th Quality Start will be eligible for the drawing for that particular Quality Start Event. A "Quality Start" occurs when a Yankees starting pitcher completes at least six innings and allows no more than three earned runs while in the game. 

Each drawing will take place within seven (7) days of the 10th Quality Start. The identified Prize Winner will be notified by phone or email using the information provided on the entry.

If five Quality Start Events do not occur between the commencement of the Sweepstakes and the end of the 2018 Season, then Performance Health will conduct a random drawing from all eligible entries for the remaining Prizes. For example, if only three (3) Quality Start Events occur between the commencement of the Sweepstakes and the end of the 2018 Season, then Performance Health will have two (2) additional random drawings within seven (7) days after the completion of the 2018 Season to select two (2) additional Prize Winners.  

ODDS OF WINNING:

The odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received prior to the particular drawing.
