Attention Baseball Teams: Sell more programs and increase your revenue at ball games!
Your fans will love Ball Team Bingo, and you will love the increased sales of your game programs.
The concept of Ball Team Bingo is very simple: A number is assigned to various events that can occur during a baseball game. For example, 1 = Steal First Base, 2=Home Run. Ball Team Bingo cards are included with the game programs that you sell before or during the game. As the listed events occur, the fans mark off the corresponding numbers on their Ball Team Bingo cards. When the fan's card is blacked-out, he is a winner and can bring his card to a designated location to collect his prize.
Ball Team Bingo gives fans an extra reason to purchase a program because you can't win unless you play, and you must have a program to play. This translates into more sales for you and more revenue for your team activities.
Prizes for Ball Team Bingo may be provided by local merchants or team sponsors, or both.

To win one must match the nine squares to the legend above. The first two “BLACKOUTS” get prizes.
The play will be according to the scorekeeper's decision.
As soon as you have matched all nine numbers go to the announcer's box to claim your prize.
In the event of a Tie, a “Tie Breaker” will decide the winner.
Once the prizes are awarded, the Ball Team Bingo is done for that game.
WHAT DO BALL TEAM BINGO CARDS LOOK LIKE?
Here is a sample Ball Team Bingo Card. There are 9 numbers on each card and each card contains randomly generated numbers between 1 and 27 so no two cards should be the same.
Each card has a single line of text at the bottom that can say anything you want to a maximum of 22 characters. You can sell that bottom line to local sponsors to cover the cost of printing your Ball Team Bingo Cards.
HOW CAN MY TEAM PARTICIPATE IN BALL TEAM BINGO?
To participate in Ball Team Bingo, add a page to your program that describes Ball Team Bingo and explains the rules. Leave a space of about 1½ inches high by 3 inches wide to paste the “bingo card” on each program. (Tip: If you put the Ball Team Bingo page on the back cover of your program, it is easier to paste the bingo cards onto each one before making sales.)
