First Baseball Bucks Contestant of the Game Claims Prize

 COTG Winner

Stephen Bowley from Gwynn Oak said he was delighted to be picked as the Contestant of the Game. Being selected for the team’s first game of the season made it even more special. He watched the game with his wife, daughter (2) and son (6).

He said he was never a big fan baseball, but began getting into it when his son (6) developed an interest for the hometown team. Stephen Bowley II’s favorite player is Chris Davis, while his dad can’t decide between Manny Machado and Adam Jones.

Stephen’s excitement was building throughout the game, but reached a fever pitch when De Aza’s bat cracked to launch the first of three team home runs, he jumped right off the couch in celebration.

In total, Bowley’s win amounted to $2,000 — $500 for being selected and an additional $500 for each home run hit. The three home runs batted in by Ryan Flaherty, Steve Pearce and Alejandro De Aza helped the Orioles put a “W” up for the team and this lucky Lottery player.

Bowley is an avid Lottery player and has been collecting My Lottery Rewards points for some time. Entering many of the second-chance contests but never winning. He’s used his reward points for Points for Prize contests and also received a fishing rod through the rewards program.
