Wanna Throw Out the First Pitch or be on MLB.com?

I got a couple of press releases today, announcing contests that might be of interest to folk here. Firstly:

See's Candies is providing one lucky Diamondbacks fan the chance to throw out the first pitch at a game this summer! Starting this Friday, July 25, through Aug. 23, fans can visit the local See's Candies to fill out a sweepstakes entry form for a chance to win. One lucky winner in each city will be selected on August 26, and will receive four tickets to the game vs. St. Louis on September 2nd.  where they’ll be escorted onto the field to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. No purchase necessary.

Hey,  if you put on a good performance, you could find yourself in the bullpen by the end of the night. It goes on to say,  "Also available, for a limited time, is the See’s Summer Variety Box (1 lb. for $15.00) that includes Key Lime Truffle, Apple Pie Truffle, Cashew Brittle and more. This summer assortment will be a home run for summer hostess gifts or the ultimate sweet treat for tailgate parties." I can only presume this is intended for cooler climes than Phoenix: here, you would rapidly end up with a one-pound Variety Box of Key Lime, Apple Pie and Cashew flavored, sticky soup... :-) Chocolate and Arizona summers - not good for each other...

Also on the competition front, MLB.com is looking for a fan to guest host their The Dish program. Might be nice to get a Diamondbacks supporter on there - though I have a feeling we are probably relative long-shots, and it'll end up being a fan of the usual suspects, either the Evil Empire or the New England Yankees. Still, if you don't enter, you can't complain. Here is the info.
