RBFF Hispanic sweepstakes features AL Rookie of the Year

From now until Sept. 5, social media users are encouraged to share their fishing and boating photos and videos on Twitter and Instagram.

To inspire more families to boat and fish and share their experiences with others, Houston shortstop and reigning American League Rookie of the Year Carlos Correa and the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation's Vamos A Pescar campaign are announcing the Así Vamos A Pescar sweepstakes.

From now until Sept. 5, social media users are encouraged to share their fishing and boating photos and videos on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #VamosAPescarSweeps for a chance to win daily and weekly prizes, and a chance to win the grand prize of a vacation for four to the Walt Disney World Resort.

"Growing up near the ocean, some of my favorite experiences have been on the water fishing with family and friends. Capturing those special moments on camera lets us relive them again and again," Correa said in a statement. "Part of the joy of fishing is creating lifelong memories of your own. We're excited to share in your special fishing and boating moments through the Vamos A Pescar sweepstakes."

All Twitter and Instagram users who post photos and videos meeting the official entry requirements and use #VamosAPescarSweeps will be entered for a chance to win great prizes from RBFF.

Daily giveaways include a $25 Visa gift card and a Vamos A Pescar-branded baseball cap.

Weekly giveaways will be announced every Monday and include a tackle box or a Carlos Correa-autographed baseball.

One grand prize winner will win a vacation for four to Walt Disney World Resort. Winners will be chosen at random and RBFF will notify the grand-prize winner in mid-September.

"We're committed to spreading the joy of fishing and boating to people of all ages and cultures, and we hope families will find a new passion after getting out on the water," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said. "We look forward to seeing all of the fun everyone is having fishing and boating this summer."
