One thing that Minor League Baseball has really mastered is the art of the creative and news-making giveaway. The Grand Prairie AirHogs are no different, offering a slew of fun stuff over the course of this season. But there’s one giveaway that is notable amongst all the rest. This prize isn’t really for you, but rather your future children and grandchildren. And you won’t be too eager to claim it, either.
See, on June 3rd the team will hand out a funeral to one lucky fan. On “All Hogs Go To Heaven” night one lucky fan will get an all-inclusive funeral experience. Valued at $10,000, a casket, headstone, service, and burial plot will all be part of the package. Don’t worry - - there’s no rush to die.
The sales manager of the cemetery participating in the promotion said the award's expiration date is the same as the winner's.So congrats to the future lucky AirHogs fan. They’ll surely be a winner, but they’ll also have lots of strange thoughts after winning. This might just be one prize I’d rather not win.
"If you're 20 and you get it and you live to be 90, of course we'll still honor it," Oak Grove Memorial Gardens sales manager Ron Alexander told The Dallas Morning News.
