It's time once again for the Grand Slam contest! For each Cleveland Indians game, we will choose one contestant. If the Tribe hits a grand slam during the game, our contestant for that day will be entered into a drawing to win $500 courtesy of First Federal Community Bank. Even if the Indians don't hit a grand slam, our contestant will still receive four FREE small Peach & Passion Fruit Iced Fruit Smoothies from any McDonald's in Tuscarawas County. At the end of the season, we will draw one name from all the contestants who had grand slams during "their" games and award the $500!
Be sure to register at any First Federal Community Bank location, any of the Parkway Auto Dealerships on Commercial Parkway in Dover, or right here at WJER Radio for your chance to win. Tune in to 1450 WJER to catch all the Cleveland Indians action this season!

*Terri Bellerive of New Philadelphia (grand slam by Jerry Sands)
*Randy Notz of Dover (grand Slam by Yan Gomes)
