OxiClean looks to hit home run with new contest

PRINCETON, N.J. — Stain remover OxiClean has teamed up with Laura Posada, wife of Major League Baseball star Jorge Posada, to give hometown sports leagues the chance to win $10,000 for their organization.

OxiClean is promoting its "Brighten Up Your Ball Game" contest on the brand's recently launched Facebook page. Consumers can enter their own story and photo on the page to explain why their child's softball or baseball organization needs help from OxiClean to brighten up their game. The contest will run through May 31.

"We're excited to announce the OxiClean Brighten Up Your Ball Game contest, and even more excited to see the stories and photos that parents submit on Facebook," said Craig Sheehan, OxiClean brand director at Church & Dwight. "OxiClean has been a trusted stain fighter for sports parents in helping them with their cleaning needs, and now we want to help little athletes too by giving them the opportunity to play a cleaner ball game."
