MLB Beat the Streak
Some streaks are meant to be broken, but apparently that cannot be said for Joe DiMaggio’s 56 game hit streak which he accomplished in 1941. MLB introduced the “Beat the Streak®” game 13 years ago (it has since turned into an app) where you choose one player a day to get a hit and if you are skilled enough to break the streak of 56, you get paid ($5.6 million to be exact).
This may seem like an easy task, but nobody has accomplished it in the 14 seasons this game has been taking place. The tricky thing is that if the player you choose does not get a hit your streak goes back to 0. This year MLB and Dunkin’ Donuts are teaming up to help someone Beat the Streak and win the money by adding a helpful twist. If your streak is in the 10-15 day range and you do not get a hit, MLB and Dunkin’ will give you a mulligan. Be sure to download the app on Google Play or the App Store and play along!
