SOUTH BEND — If you’ve got power — and money — you might be able to compete in a home run contest against Jose Canseco.
Three fans who submit winning bids will be given a chance to go up against the ex-Major League slugger in a home run derby on Sunday, July 6, at Four Winds Field.
Bidding starts at $250 for the contest being organized by the South Bend Silver Hawks.
The winning bidders receive their spot in the 1:15 p.m.contest, four tickets to the Hawks’ game that follows at 2:05, inclusion in a private meet-and-greet autograph session with Canseco and an all-you-can-eat buffet.
Another autograph session that day is open to all fans. The private meet-and-greet is $60 and includes a game ticket and the buffet. That event is limited to 100 people.
Bidding for the home run contest begins June 16 at on the Silver Hawks website.
