Joc Pederson's Car To Be Given Away Next Friday

August 22, 2014

One lucky fan at the Albuquerque Isotopes game next Friday, Aug. 29, will drive away (or tow away) outfielder Joc Pederson's luxurious 1994 Buick Century. Fans will not want to miss the chance to win this one-of-a-kind car driven by the next Los Angeles Dodgers superstar.

The car, nicknamed "Little Chucky," has only 166,000 miles on it and has at least one operable window, which is really all you need. It is perfect for cruising around during the New Mexico summers with its "awesome" stereo system and lack of air conditioning. Kelly Blue Book estimates the value at nearly $1,000 (depending on if it has a full tank of gas). Little Chucky will also come with two complimentary air fresheners and whatever else Pederson forgets to clean out.

The Isotopes guarantee 100 percent that this distinctive car will carry you all the way to your next destination out of the Isotopes Park parking lot. A satisfactory safety inspection has been completed on the vehicle.

On Aug. 29, fans can enter for a chance to win the car during the game on the concourse in front of the Isotopes Pro Shop. The car will be given away on the field following the game and just prior to that night's fireworks show. Contestants must be 18 years of age with a valid drivers license, and the winner is responsible for all license and registrations fees, as well as any taxes. The winner agrees to accept the vehicle "as is."

Pederson is on the brink of becoming the Pacific Coast League's first 30-30 player in the modern era. He currently has 31 home runs and 28 stolen bases. The last player to record a 30-30 season in the PCL was Frank Demaree in 1934 when he hit 45 homers and stolen 41 bases in 189 games. Prior to the 2014 season, Pederson was ranked the Dodgers top-overall prospect by Baseball America.
