According to the freight company, over 51,000 fans guessed the amount of baseballs in the trailer, with Haas coming closest to the correct amount at a guess of 178, 595 balls.

Haas reports that he played baseball in his youth and previously had plans to go to the 2016 World Series.

“I played baseball my entire childhood, from t-ball through college,” said Haas. “My wife and I hoped to go to the series last year to cheer on the Rangers, but when the Rangers lost during the Postseason, I didn’t think we’d get another chance.”

Haas’ wife, Abbey, reports that upon seeing the clear trailer filled with baseballs at Globe Life Park in Arlington this past July, she urged her husband to enter the guessing contest.

“We both guessed, and since my sister is a math teacher and I work with engineers, I loved the technical challenge and using research and logic to determine a number,” said Abbey.

Old Dominion reports that after the baseball-filled trailer saw its debut at All-Star week in Miami in July, the trailer saw 8,782 miles, 146.37 hours of road time and stops in 29 states over the course of visiting 7 MLB stadiums

As the official freight carrier of the MLB, Old Dominion reports that it will continue to see greater brand recognition and ultimately engage Old Dominion employees across all sectors of the company in order to continue to provide for an enriching company culture.

“Through our connection with America’s pastime, we’re excited to introduce OD to new fans and share the premium service we deliver for our customers every day,” said Carter.
