“Sweep The Series Challenge” entrants can begin submitting their predictions of Series game scores and the Series MVP following the conclusion of the League Championships Series round on October 22 (or earlier). Entrants can make their selections and predictions until 3pm EDT/Noon PDT on October 24, prior to Game 1 of the World Series. Entrants taking advantage of the pre-registration period will be notified by e-mail once the World Series matchup is set and selections and predictions can be made.
"We're excited to give fans a chance to win $1 million through this challenge,” said Curtis Granderson of the Los Angeles Dodgers. “We've had a blast interacting on Infield Chatter so far this season, and we are pumped to be able to bring fans this incredible challenge for the postseason.
