The Fort Myers Miracle recently had a promotion where they offered free tickets to any fan who could surpass the speed of a Jamie Moyer fastball at the team's fast pitch booth. (78 mph) Given the Twins rough start to the season they could probably generate additional interest from a similarly themed fan challenge. Please share your best suggestions.

After the benches get warned on a HBP, if you can get ejected faster than Gardy, you win a pair of umpire shoes covered in infield dirt.

Submit a 200 word essay on how scrappy you are. Winning essay wins a major league contract with the Twins as a middle infielder (with unlimited starting potential!).

...and a lifetime appointment as the number 2 hitter in the lineup.

This is my favorite so far.

Throw a ball further than Ben Revere, win a coupon for $1.00 off a Twins Dog. (Have to keep the good prizes for the hard contests)
