THOMASVILLE, N.C. (July 7, 2017) — Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. is unveiling a unique World Series ticket sweepstakes and innovative "clear" trailer during Major League Baseball's All-Star Week festivities.
Old Dominion, the Official Freight Carrier of MLB, is awarding a pair of tickets to one game of each of the next three World Series to an individual who can come closest to guessing the number of baseballs it would take to fill this customized trailer. The "OD Seats to the World Series" sweepstakes debuts at MLB's All-Star week, July 9 in Miami, Fla. in front of Marlins Park.
"We're helping our customers and fans celebrate the national pastime by delivering the ultimate premium experience - tickets to three consecutive World Series," said David Carter, Old Dominion's vice president of marketing communications. "This prize underscores our daily promise to our customers, delivering premium service."
After departing from Miami on July 12, the baseball trailer will begin a cross-country tour through August, visiting the seven MLB Clubs that Old Dominion sponsors: the New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels and Kansas City Royals. Fans can enter the sweepstakes online at odfl.com/tickets.
Engineers at Wabash National in Lafayette, Ind. took on the logistical challenge of designing and building this "clear" and highly unique trailer, strategically balancing the additional weight of the balls in a trailer that could travel across the country.
"The 'OD Seats to the World Series' tour allows us to connect with fans across the country, and introduce the Old Dominion brand to logistics and freight managers and baseball fans," Carter said. "We're thrilled to be the first carrier to create and showcase an innovative trailer that celebrates our connection with America's pastime."
In addition to the sweepstakes and baseball trailer reveal, MLB legends Dave Winfield, Tim Raines and Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez will appear at Old Dominion's FanFest booth in the Miami Beach Convention Center.
