MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (APRIL 1, 2015) - The Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, in partnership with Axelrod & Associates, P.A., are glad to announce an exciting promotion around Pelicans home runs, benefiting the South Carolina Make-A-Wish Foundation during the 2015 season at TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

For every home run hit by a Pelicans player during any 2015 home game, Axelrod & Associates will donate $100 to the South Carolina Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Also new to the ballpark this season will be a billboard in right-centerfield, which includes a caricature of Mr. Stuart M. Axelrod, donning a Chicago Cubs cap, extending his glove through the outfield wall, where his glove is ready to make a catch. If a home run ball by a Pelicans player goes through the cutout hole in the glove and into the accompanying net behind it, one lucky fan in attendance will be chosen at random to win $100,000. Fans must be present at TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark to win. The winner will be selected based on the tickets scanned at the gates prior to the first pitch.

The 2015 season marks the 17th season for the Pelicans franchise and first as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. For information on tickets to see the Pelicans in 2015, please call (843) 918-6000, e-mail info@myrtlebeachpelicans.com, or visit www.MyrtleBeachPelicans.com.
