Yesterday I told you about an awesome trip I’m going on next month —- I’ll be walking the red carpet at the premiere of Million Dollar Arm which stars Jon Hamm.  I’m so excited for this trip!!!

Disney is giving amateur baseball pitchers in the nation a chance to compete for a $1 million prize in the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest. The Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest is being held to celebrate the opening of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm,” an incredible true story about two young men who went from never throwing a baseball to getting a Major League tryout.

Who can compete?

Amateur baseball pitchers—male or female, who are legal United States residents at least 18 years of age or older—are invited to qualify to compete in the preliminary rounds of the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest at either Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida, Disneyland® Resort in California or at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day at the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. The three contestants from each location who throw the fastest pitches will advance to the finals and have a chance to compete for a $1 million prize at the world premiere of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” in Hollywood, California.

Since I’ll be attending the red carpet premiere of Million Dollar Arm, I’ll get to see the final competition!  I’m so excited. (I think I’ve said that a lot!).
