12 de julio de 2018
T-Mobile lleva #HatsOff4Heroes al siguiente nivel para el Home Run Derby de este año. El Un-carrier donará $5 mil por cada home run y $10 mil por cada home run con una bola magenta a Team Rubicon, una organización de ayuda en casos de catástrofe conducida por veteranos

Fans can help take that donation over $1M using #HatsOff4Heroes, and the Un-carrier will deliver fan perks throughout MLB All-Star Week with chances to win tickets to the Home Run Derby, free custom hats and more.

The Un-carrier's going to bat for baseball fans and our nation's military - again! As the official wireless provider of Major League Baseball, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is taking #HatsOff4Heroes to the next level at this year's Home Run Derby. The Un-carrier will donate $5k per home run and $10k per home run off a magenta ball to Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization.

Fans score big too during All-Star Week, July 13–17, with a Home Run Derby bracket challenge, free custom hats, behind the scenes access, and chances to meet MLB players and win tickets to the Derby.

"Last year's T-Mobile Home Run Derby was the most watched in the last decade and the most streamed MLB ESPN event EVER. This year, we're going all-in with #HatsOff4Heroes in support of our nation's military and veterans at the Derby," said John Legere, T-Mobile president and CEO. "And at the Un-carrier, we take 'we won't stop' seriously - we're dialing it up this year with an Armed Services Classic, free custom hats for fans, Derby ticket giveaways and more - we're gonna make All-Star Week one for the record books!"

 

#HatsOff4Heroes at the 2018 T-Mobile Home Run Derby

T-Mobile has been expanding its extensive military support all year, first launching T-Mobile ONE para militares and its companywide military initiative. Then, earlier this year, T-Mobile launched a campaña pledging to donate at least $1 million to Team Rubicon, starting with $1 per every #HatsOff4Heroes tweet and Instagram post through the regular MLB season. Leading up to and throughout the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, the Un-carrier is taking its military support to new levels:

#HatsOff4Heroes

During the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, the Un-carrier will donate $5k for every home run and $10k every time players hit a magenta ball outta the park during bonus time! Fans can participate by posting their #HatsOff4Heroes support messages on Twitter and Instagram - each post is worth $1, so start hashtaggin' to help drive the donation total over one million!

All-Star Armed Services Classic, Presented by T-Mobile

Following the championship game of the inaugural Armed Services Classic tournament on July 13, one representative from each of the five military branches will compete in a home run contest held at Nationals Park. The Un-carrier will donate another $300k total ($50k to a charity supporting each military branch) to mark the event, and the two home run contest finalists will get the chance to hit alongside the pros at the T-Mobile Home Run Derby on July 16 – with the winner getting an additional $50k donated to their branch’s respective cause.
