The all-time largest Powerball jackpot is being split three ways, but the State College Spikes will sweeten the pot by giving each winner the opportunity to have their very own night at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park this season.
The Spikes, Short-Season Single-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, will host the "Billionaire's Ball" on Sunday, July 3 when the Mahoning Valley Scrappers visit for a 6:05 p.m. game. As part of the festivities, all three winners are invited to come to Medlar Field at Lubrano Park and pick the promotions of their choice for that night.
The Spikes will make every effort to fulfill any choice each winner makes while adhering to applicable laws and regulations.
Winning tickets have reportedly been sold in Chino Hills, California; Munford, Tennessee; and in Melbourne Beach, Florida. All three newly minted tycoons can contact the Spikes by phone at (814) 272-1711 to start the "Ball" rolling.
"All of our fans would love to have the chance to share a billion-dollar jackpot, but it's not too often you can have that and do whatever you want at a ballpark," said Spikes General Manager Scott Walker. "If they want to bring out giraffes, or have the Spikes wear all-plaid uniforms, we'll do everything we can to try and make that happen. We're excited to find out what the Powerball jackpot winners want to do at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park."
Plus, no matter whether the Powerball jackpot winners choose to take the Spikes up on this offer, fans can still look forward to a spectacular FIREWORKS show on July 3, presented by the PA Lottery. The night will also feature David Smith, the Human Cannonball, bringing his daredevil act to Medlar Field at Lubrano Park
Fans can also participate in an array of fun giveaways that night based on the winning numbers for the $1.6 billion drawing (4-8-19-27-34 and 10), including:
- 4 first pitches
- 8 Bullpen Box tickets
- 19 T-Shirts
- 27 boxes of popcorn
- 34 hot dogs
- 10 special "Spikes Power Packs."
The "Billionaire's Ball" is just one of 38 fun nights planned for the Spikes' 2016 home season, which starts on Saturday, June 18. Season tickets, McDonald's Flex Books and group outings for all 38 home games during the 2016 season are currently available by calling (814) 272-1711.
