If you're looking to retire early, or seize upon that soft Brooklyn real estate market, and you can hit a baseball with tremendous accuracy, then you should head down to Pier 61 in Chelsea tomorrow. From 10am to 1pm, vitaminwater is giving the first 200 people who show up a chance to hit a home run in their Homers in the Hudson promotion.
Those participating should wear their luckiest accessories because to win the $1 million prize, they're going to have to accomplish the near impossible - hit a baseball off a tee on the pier into a hole 150 feet away. And that hole will be in an inflatable glove atop a inflatable vitaminwater bottle floating on a barge on the Hudson River!
If a swing at a $1 million isn't enough incentive to head down, there will also be some Major League talent on hand: Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain will be on hand as well as Tampa Bay Rays All-Star Evan Longoria... and vitaminwater spokesperson and Mets third baseman David Wright.
