Wilmore native Joshua Descoteaux is one of 50 finalists to be a contestant in the 2012 Major Leauge Baseball Fan Cave, a concept that started last year and mixes baseball with music, popular culture, media, interactive technology and art. More than 22,000 people enterd the contest.
Through Wednesday, Feb. 22, fans can view video submissions from all 50 applicants on MLBFanCave.com and vote for their favorites.
Major League Baseball will select 30 finalists based on fan voting, quality of the original submissions, and the ability of the contestants to generate buzz and interest in their campaigns. The 30 finalists will earn a trip to spring training in Arizona at the end of February, where they will compete in a variety of challenges to determine the final group of contestants. These winners will begin the season in the MLB Fan Cave with the goal of watching all 2,430 MLB games on a large wall of big-screen Sony televisions while chronicling their experiences online through videos, blogs and social media. Along the way, they will compete with one another over the course of the season in a series of challenges, with fans online helping decide who gets to stay in the Fan Cave and who gets eliminated with one eventual winner crowned before the end of the World Series.
