With LA trailing 6-2 in the ninth inning to the Cleveland Indians, Upton'south 444-foot solo shot easily cleared the fence before it bounced on the grass, right in front of the "Angels Residence Running In The Can" sign, before falling into the familiar 10-foot tall Sherwin Williams paint can.

Justin Upton'south homer doesn't count for $1 million paint can promotion

A ninth-inning residence running by LA Angels slugger Justin Upton on Tuesday night appeared to be on the tag for a $1 million stadium promotion when it bounced interior the oversized paint can behind the left-center field fence at Angel Stadium, but the Angels said after the game that the homer wouldn't count for the promotion because it didn't land on the fly.

With LA trailing 6-2 in the ninth inning to the Cleveland Indians, Upton'south 444-foot solo shot easily cleared the fence before it bounced on the grass, right in front of the "Angels Residence Running In The Can" sign, before falling into the familiar 10-foot tall Sherwin Williams paint can.

The homer drew a loud reaction, and not just because it was Upton'south career-high thirty-second of the season. The paint company has a been running a promotion this season in which it'll donate $1 million to the Angels Baseball Foundation if an Angels player hits a residence running that lands in the can.

However, the Angels said Upton'south homer wouldn't count for the $1 million donation because it bounced before it went interior the paint can. To count, the homer would've had to land interior the can without bouncing, the team said.

The Angels went on to lose 6-3.
