That's a neat promotion, but I don't think it will become as legendary as Ten Cent Beer Night did.

I think Uncle Sam might want a piece of that for whoever wins the $10K.

Is the $10k really going to be CASH? I'd head straight for security if I won it.

It says "cash value", which means that most of the give-aways will be $1 coupons for a free medium sized coffeee at the Duke & Dutchess outlet on the Ohio Turnpike.

It depends. In theory, the $10,000 could be considered a gift from the Indians to you and therefore be tax-free under the Gift Allowance. However, the purchase of a ticket could make it a lottery type situation. If I had the time, I'd look into it so, but I don't. Chances are, though, it will be taxed.

After this weekend, the Indians should just stage "Baseball Game Day", where all fans in attendance get to see a baseball game.

Do you really think it would be cash? Would you notice right away that it's a little thicker than one bill?

Ah, thanks. I didn't actually read it. :redface:

So, what size coffee does the 10k coupon get you?

If they gift it, they cannot deduct it from their taxes. Therefore you will be taxed!

I think it's tax free if you use the money to buy a monkey and dress it in tuxedo t-shirts.

It could be if you use that $10,000 to buy beer. :D:

I don't know why this hasn't been done before.
Instead of signing washup veterans or some other "low risk, high reward" signing, a team would bring more fans out to the ballpark (and make the money right back) by giving away cash to the fans instead of some over the hill millionaire.

'Crazy' is right.

We have three key free agents to sign in the very near future, and we're gonna make like Jack Nicholson as the Joker in the '89 Batman film and throw money into the stands. At least $42 thousand worth! :rolleyes:

I did love the Duke and Duchess Turnpike comment hahaha!

That's pretty smart actually. More people will come to a game that probably wouldn't since its going to be a cold early April game. And, depending how much people get, they'll most likely turn around and spend it at the game on food, beer, merch, etc...
