mlb- $10,000 Mistake

“A blown call” that negated Marlins LF Miguel Cabrera’s home run on Wednesday could cost a contestant of MLB.com’s “Beat the Streak: HR Edition” the $10,000 grand prize. The contest “requires participants to choose one [MLB] player each day that they think will hit a home run,” with nine consecutive successful selections winning $10,000. MLBAM Editor-in-Chief Dinn Mann: “It hasn’t been worked out, but a gesture of some kind will be made. It’s a good guess that something meaningful will be done to show we are good sports.”
