TEAM Coalition traveled to TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska for the 2017 NCAA Men’s College World Series on June 16 – June 20, 2016. More than 1,900 responsible fans participated in the activation while enjoying the pre-game festivities at MCWS Fan Fest. Over the course of the five-day event, 564 photos were taken in front of a larger-than-life baseball that each fan autographed as their pledge never to drive drunk.
Fans from all over the country gathered to watch eight teams – Florida Gators, Oregon State Beavers, TCU Horned Frogs, Florida State Seminoles, Texas A&M Aggies, Cal State Fullerton Titans, Louisville Cardinals and LSU Tigers – compete for the national championship. The winner will be determined by June 28. 2017.
Each day one lucky fan, who took the pledge to be a responsible college baseball fan, was selected to win two tickets to a game the following day.
US DOT / NHTSA 2015 NATIONAL DATA:
• In 2015, 10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.
• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol, and fail to buckle up.
