OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 24, 2004--U.S. Bancorp
Malcolm Rasmussen of San Carlos was awarded $5,000 through the
U.S. Bank Back-2-Back Cash Back Sweepstakes on June 16, after A's
players Jermaine Dye and Scott Hatteberg hit back-to-back home runs
during the A's game at St. Louis. Both home runs were hit in the sixth
inning off Cardinals' pitcher Jason Marquis.
The U.S. Bank Back-2-Back Cash Back Sweepstakes gives A's fans the
opportunity to win $5,000, courtesy of U.S. Bank, if the A's hit
back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning. Entry forms for this
season-long promotion can be picked up at any of 80 Bay Area U.S. Bank
branches and then mailed in to KFRC 610 AM. A new contestant is
selected and announced on KFRC 610 AM prior to the sixth inning of
every A's game.
"The Back-2-Back contest is generating a lot of attention, even
more now thanks to Malcolm's win last Wednesday," said Ole Larsen,
U.S. Bank region manager for Northern California. "We couldn't be
happier for him and hope many more fans get to experience Back-2-Back
wins as the A's sluggers lead the team through another great season."
