Home Run By Angels' Upton Does Not Trigger $1M Promotion

A ninth-inning home run by Angels LF Justin Upton in last night's loss to the Indians "appeared to be on the mark" for a $1M promotion when it "bounced inside the oversized paint can behind the left-center field fence at Angel Stadium." However, the Angels said that the "homer would not count for the promotion because it did not land on the fly" in the Sherwin Williams paint can. The company this season has offered to donate $1M to the Angels Baseball Foundation if an Angels player "hits a home run that lands in the can" (ESPN.com, 9/20).
