Field of Dreams: New Hampshire Lottery to Award $650,000 During Live Drawing at New Hampshire Fisher Cats Baseball Game


CONCORD, N.H. – With thousands of fans watching at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, the New Hampshire Lottery will award one lucky winner $650,000 in a live drawing on Monday, August 29, right on the infield in the middle of a New Hampshire Fisher Cats baseball game. During the sixth inning, 11 finalists will be called onto the field to take part in the live $500 a Week For Life drawing. The grand prize winner will have the option of taking home $500 per week for 25 years, which equates to $650,000, or accepting a one-time cash payout of $250,000. (Prize amounts are calculated before taxes.)

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to award $650,000 to a lucky player right on the infield during a New Hampshire Fisher Cats game,” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission. “It is such a big thrill for our finalists to be standing down on the infield with thousands of fans watching. And the excitement only grows when we reveal the winner. We cannot wait to host this live drawing!”

The New Hampshire Lottery selected the 11 finalists during a preliminary drawing earlier this summer from non-winning $500 a Week For Life scratch tickets. During the sixth inning, finalists will be invited onto the field and will choose one of 11 prize envelopes. Finalists will be instructed to open their envelopes at once to reveal their prizes.

Finalists include:

  • Roland & Brenda Adam of Berlin
  • Scott Wentworth of Barrington
  • Thomas French of Charlestown
  • Eugene Martin of Manchester
  • Frances Stevens of Bellows Falls, VT
  • Charles Nelson of Bath
  • Elicia Dowd of Hooksett
  • Gloria Ley of Rutland, VT
  • June Beattie of Franklin
  • Sally Scott of Manchester
  • Roosevelt Rivers Jr. of Manchester

In addition to the grand prize of $650,000, the following prizes will be up for grabs Monday: one prize of $10,000; one prize of $2,500; and eight prizes of $1,000. All finalists will watch the game from the first base deck with food and beverages, and each will have the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial “first pitch.”

Earlier this summer, Loudon resident Teresa Tetrault won $1.3 million during the live, $1,000 a Week For Life drawing held similarly at a New Hampshire Fisher Cats game. Teresa opted for the one-time lump sum payout of $500,000 before taxes.
