Pepsi "Lost Art of Bunting" Contest:
Three players will be selected from each team. The six contestants will have 10 opportunities to bunt towards targets placed on the infield. A bulls-eye will be rewarded five points and $50, while a ball that stops rolling on the target's four outer rings will result in a corresponding point total. The player that accumulates the most points will take home $200 in addition to the Lost Art of Bunting Trophy. Former Whitecap ('97) and current Quad Cities Pitching Coach Dave Borkowski will be pitching for the bunt contest.
