MLB Offering $5.6M to Fan Who Can 'Beat the Streak' on iPhone App

Do you own an iPhone? OK, do you think you can successfully pick a Major League Baseball Player who will get a hit today? OK, now how about for 57 straight games—or one more than Joe DiMaggio‘s iconic streak, which was accomplished 70 years? If so, you will win $5.6 million in MLB’s “Beat the Streak Game.”

Beat the Streak always has been a fun and easy way for fans to wade into fantasy baseball and the iPhone App expands fans’ participatory opportunities,” said Gregg Klayman, Vice President, Product Development for MLB.com and “Beat The Streak” creator. “The game provides a lively and engaging platform, putting fans into the figurative shoes of players chasing this hallowed baseball record, while also vying against friends, colleagues, and millions of others in pursuit of the $5.6 million grand prize.”

The app can be downloaded for free right here. Good luck.
