The online registration form will be located under the “More” tab on raftersbaseball.com, under the drop-down subtab “Free Tuition Tuesdays”. For every Tuesday regular season home game, one randomly selected contestant will be chosen from all of the eligible entries to be the “Mid-State Free Tuition Tuesdays” guest at one of the three Tuesday home games this summer. The randomly selected contestant will receive a $500 scholarship, four complimentary Solarus Founders club all-inclusive tickets to gain entrance to one designated game and be eligible for the Free Tuition Tuesday’s grand prize that evening. The contestant will also receive four Rafters goodie bags and photo with Rafters mascot, Rosco, commemorating the event.
If during the third inning of their designated home game, the Rafters pitcher strikes out the first three consecutive batters of the opposing team without any of the batters reaching base, the pre-selected contestant will win free tuition to Mid-State Technical College courtesy of Mid-State’s Foundation, valued up to $15,000! Please see the full listing of official promotion and eligibility rules along with scholarship information at the online registration form page on raftersbaseball.com.
