The Daily News pays $1,000 for a home run hit in the Payoff inning and $10,000 for a grand slam. To celebrate the 500th home run in the contest's history, those numbers will rise to $5,000 and $15,000, respectively, for that milestone home run only. (There have been 494 so far.)
Contestants whose batter fails to hit a home run receive a gift pack, which includes a variety of Phillies-related items.
