Nappanee dad lucky Disney World winner at the Cove


A Michiana man is now planning his free trip to Disney World!

He won the trip at the Silver Hawks game Saturday.

The team handed out the vacation to the 5 millionth fan to ever walk into the Cove.

When the gates opened Saturday, the Silver Hawks were only 586 fans away from that number.

The winner is a dad of two from Nappanee.

"They just pulled me aside and said I was the 5 millionth person through, 5 millionth fan.  I was trying to help my kids get through and wasn't paying any attention at all so I was just completely surprised and dumbfounded," says winner Brent Hockstetler.

The Silver Hawks passed another milestone Saturday, having 200,000 fans visit the Cove so far this season.
