Like the San Diego Padres (here) and the Washington Nationals (here) before them, the Texas Rangers are giving fans an opportunity to win free season tickets with a swing of the bat.

All the fan has to do is hit a home run, and the tickets are free. Sure, no problem.

This Saturday, the Rangers will be holding their Select-a-Seat event at Globe Life Park for season-ticket holders.

According to the Rangers’ official website, any fan who is at least 18 years old and places a 25 percent deposit on their season-ticket packages of at least a half-season will get three swings to win free tickets. The fan is not allowed to be a current or former college/professional player, however. 

Hitting a home run at a major league ballpark is a tall task for the ordinary fan. Heck, many big leaguers struggle to blast dingers on a consistent basis. As a way to make it easier for fans to win something, Texas will have targets set up at the ballpark that will allow fans a chance to win autographed prizes.

And luckily for them, Globe Life Park is known to be a hitter’s park. According to ESPN’s Home Run Tracker, only eight of the 29 other ballparks in baseball gave up more home runs per game than Globe Life Park (2.19) in 2015.

Better hit the cages, Rangers fans.
