Leinenkugel’s and Christian Yelich Are Giving Away Beer and Hats to Mark Baseball’s Return

Fans in nine states can enter via Facebook, Instagram

Entries will be accepted through July 28, and 119 winners will be chosen Leinenkugel’s

The good news is that Major League Baseball finally returns from its pandemic-forced shutdown Thursday night.

The better news is that Leinenkugel’s and Milwaukee Brewers superstar Christian Yelich are going to make 119 fans—one for each day that Opening Day was delayed—very happy with a six-pack of the brewer’s Summer Shandy and a Leinie’s baseball hat signed by Yelich.

The bad news is that only fans from the following nine states are eligible to enter: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin.

Fans must be 21 or older to enter, which they can do by going to these posts on Facebook or Instagram (they must follow Leinenkugel’s on those platforms) and explaining why they missed baseball.

Entries will be accepted through July 28, and the 119 winners who are chosen will receive $10 via Venmo to cover the cost of a six-pack of Summer Shandy, as well as the special hat described above.

Full rules are available here.
