Yankees Love: Enzo’s Dugout Visit

We held a contest recently where parents and their kids ages 7-14 needed to record a video about why they love the Yankees and P.C. Richard & Son. The winner was randomly drawn from the submissions and received a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Yankees dugout and 4 tickets to the game. The lucky winner was former Little League Yankee, PSP 3000 lover, and 7 year old Enzo Cupani. Here was his video submission:

In his submission, this cute seven year old said that he wanted his first “real league” Yankees game to be “really special,” and I think that we achieved that for him. Enzo was escorted by a Yankees rep to witness the players, his heroes, coming in and out of the dugout before their game on June 11, 2010 against Houston. The Cupani family wrote in and sent pictures to tell us more about their experience:

The Yankee dugout visit was AMAZING! It was beyond any of our expectations. He got 6 players’ autographs: Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano, Ivan Nova, Chad Moeller, Francisco Cervulli AND Derek Jeter! You didn’t make his dreams come true, because he doesn’t even know how to dream of this. The Yankees gave him more dreams to have.

P.C. Richard was very generous to extend this once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Enzo responded in kind. He gave away five of his six signed baseballs: to his cousin, neighbor, two best friends, and his baby brother. Many little boys (and their dads) are very happy! His whole life, he will be known as “the guy who met the Yankees.” A wonderful legacy.

200 Thank Yous to the P.C. Richard family, and the historic number of wins Andy Pettitte –my boyfriend in my head– achieved at this game!

Most Sincerely,
Deb, Joe, Enzo & Angelo

We are incredibly happy to hear that Enzo had such an amazing time, and his mother’s letter and photos touched our hearts. We wanted to share them will all of you!

Win a Chance to Visit the Yankees Dugout and See a Game from P.C. Richard & Son!

Attention, Yankees fans! Your child can win a once-in-a-lifetime experience to visit the Yankees dugout during batting practice before the game on June 11, 2010 from P.C. Richard & Son! A Yankees representative will meet your child and escort him/her to the dugout for a tour, take pictures, and potentially meet some of the team. They will receive baseballs and pens and wait for the players to come in and out of the dugout for autographs. Bring your camera, as the representative will capture the entire dugout experience in photos. Once the dugout visit is over, you, your child, and 2 friends or family members will receive tickets to the game against Houston!

Entering is easy:

  1. Record a video of your child talking about why they want to see the Yankees dugout and what their favorite product is at P.C. Richard & Son and why (video game, music player, cell phone, etc.)
  2. Upload it onto YouTube
  3. Comment on this post with a link to the video by Monday, May 31, 2010 at midnight.

And that’s it! A random drawing of all qualified entrants will be held on June 1, 2010 and the winner will be contacted the same day. Good luck!

Rules & Restrictions
The parent or guardian of the child must be 18 years of age or older and be present during the entire experience at Yankee Stadium. Winners MUST first come to the P.C. Richard & Son headquarters in Farmingdale to sign a waiver that will allow them to attend the dugout visit. Your child cannot attend without this waiver.

Only ONE child will be allowed in the Yankees dugout and must be between the ages of 7 and 14. They will receive a 30 minute supervised dugout visit during the time when batting/infield practice is generally scheduled to take place. Parents must take their child to meet their Yankees representative inside the New York Yankees Offices lobby and MUST arrive at 4:45PM sharp. If you arrive late, there are no guarantees that the Yankees representative will be able to accommodate your child and allow him/her into the dugout. You will be notified if your arrival time changes. No parents or guardians will be permitted to the dugout. No exceptions. Parents or guardians must wait in the lobby until the child’s dugout visit is over.

Your child can bring the following memorabilia (within reason) to be signed: player photographs, baseballs, player trading cards, and shirts or jerseys. Bats are prohibited. There are no guarantees that the players will sign autographs. There is a chance that they can meet the players and coaches and potentially get memorabilia signed, but it is not guaranteed.

Should the parents/guardians fail to respond by midnight EST on June 3, 2010, their prize will be forfeited and the next winner will be chosen.

Note: All comments must be approved by an administrator before they are posted, so they may not show up right away. Please only submit your link ONCE to be considered.

Edit: This contest is now closed and the winner was chosen via the Random Thingy Chooser. Congratulations to Enzo Cupani! In the event that he does not respond by June 3 at midnight, our next winner will be chosen. Thank you to everyone who entered! We enjoyed watching your videos and appreciate the work put into them :)
