FRISCO, TEXAS (JUNE 15, 2013) - With one powerful swing of the bat, Pat Lobb Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Frisco gave away a brand new 2013 Jeep Wrangler to a lucky Frisco RoughRiders fan at Dr Pepper Ballpark on Friday night.
Jana Tucker, a Frisco resident, was the lucky winner of the Pat Lobb Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Magic Swing Promotion. The promotion awards the contestant with a brand new Jeep Wrangler if the RoughRiders hit a home run on the first swing of the bat during the bottom of the fifth inning.
That is exactly what 'Riders All-Star catcher Tomas Telis did with the first offering from Jorge De Leon in the bottom of the fifth. The Venezuelan backstop, who had clubbed just two home runs in 40 games played this season, launched the first pitch of the inning onto the grass berm over the left-center field fence. The home run gave Frisco a 2-0 lead in an eventual 3-2 extra-innings loss against the Corpus Christi Hooks.
This is only the third game this season that Pat Lobb Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has given a local fan the chance to take home a brand new Jeep Wrangler, and the Frisco RoughRiders hope for more winners to come in the future. Patt Lobb Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Frisco just opened their doors in May, 2013. A part of Pat Lobb Auto Group, the nearly 60,000 sq. ft facility is the premier Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership in North Texas.
Higher resolution photos and video of the home run and celebration of Jana Tucker and family are available upon request. Contact either Nathan Barnett or Alex Vispoli for further information.
The RoughRiders are currently on a season-long 12-game home stand and are in the midst of a four-game series against the Corpus Christi Hooks that wraps up Saturday night at 7:05 pm. The teams entered the series separated by just two games in the Texas League South Division with less than a week remaining in the season's first half.
