Jimmy Rollins and Red Bull are doing some unique things around Philadelphia this weekend as 576 (the same number of feet Jimmy plans to hit a baseball on Monday) specially marked J-Roll baseballs have been hidden around the city. If you are lucky enough to find one and bring it to the Ball Park Cranks event on Monday on the Ben Franklin Parkway, you could get VIP access and a chance to meet Young James and get an autographed item.
Be sure to check back here on Sunday as we may have a hint as to an exact location of one of J-Roll’s special balls.
The full details:
the city of Philadelphia in honor of the distance we hope Jimmy can hit
the ball. If fans find a baseball and bring it to the event on Monday by
11:15 AM as directed, they are entered into a sweepstakes to win access
to the VIP seating area which includes a meet and greet with Jimmy
Rollins and an autographed trading card.
Cranks shirts will also pop up around the city which are INSTANT winners
for the VIP seating area. Fans will be given clues and learn the
Foursquare locations of these shirts by following @RedBullPhilly and
Jimmy Rollins on Facebook.
