Swing For Your Seats! Hit A Home Run and Win Padres Season Tickets!

USA TODAY Sports

Hit a home run like Yonder Alonso and you can spend 2014 watching him do it from your own season tickets.

The Padres have announced a contest where anyone can come to Petco Park and swing for a pair of season tickets.

On March 15th, Petco Park will play host to the closest thing that San Diego has come to a home run derby in over 20 years. (I'm not counting the softball guys that blast softballs off the scoreboard every year or so.)

Starting at 8:00am until 4:00pm, participants will be able to step up to the plate and face off against the pitching machine. Participants will get 1 swing or face two pitches. If the two pitches have gone by without a swing, your turn is over and you're done. Now that is a high pressure situation.

Oh, you fouled it off? kthxbye.

All participants must be at least 16 years of age. If you are a "current Member", you'll get a notification on how to participate as well.

If you are a current Member, you will receive a notification of how to participate. Current Members are only eligible to win season tickets in addition to their currently renewed or non-renewed seat locations.

However, not just anybody can try it.

According to the rules, if you played Division 1 baseball in college or professionally (major, minor, or independent), don't even bother signing up because you are not eligible for THE PRIZE.

And what a prize it is.

THE PRIZE

Winners will receive 2 season tickets for the 2014 season in the upper infield section.

All you have to do is put one over the fence.

A winning hit is one that passes over the outfield fence of Petco Park, in fair territory, without bouncing on the field (a home run). The ultimate determination of whether a hit constitutes a home run shall be made by the Padres, in its sole and absolute discretion.

Sounds easy enough, right?

If you are interested in swinging for your seats, register now! There are 4 two-hour blocks throughout the day. Register to reserve your spot today.

Official rules are provided here.
