What I Like About Insurance Salesman – Charleston RiverDogs

Wednesday, May 31, 2006

Charleston will help insurance salesman by offering a continuing education class before the game. Then, the RiverDogs will make fun insurance salesmen by dressing in hats and trench coats and selling bogus insurance policies. Staff members will walk the stands offing such things as “bunt insurance” for five dollars. If a player bunts, the holder can redeem the policy for $10 worth of hot dogs and sodas.

NASCAR Night – Southwest Michigan Devil Rays

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

We here at MinorLeagueDugout.com love a good race. Southwest Michigan is bringing in actual race cars and simulators, and will give away tickets to races at near-by Michigan International Speedway. Think the players’ uniforms will sport Tide, Bud and Office Depot logos?

Tribute to the Hot Dog – Reading Phillies

Monday, May 29, 2006

On Memorial Day, Reading will pay homage to the ultimate baseball food: the hot dog. The Phillies will give away a coupon for a free hot dog to all fans in attendance. They are also bringing in a 75 foot long hot dog. It’s so big, the bun will be assembled in eight foot sections, prompting Reading director of media relations Rob Hackash to surmise that they probably couldn’t find a 75-foot long bread oven.

Free fireworks in: Kinston, Long Island, Lexington, Mobile, Tennessee and Sussex

Friday, May 26, 2006

You’re Outta Here Night – Palm Beach Cardinals

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

Palm Beach celebrates cantankerous former New York Yankees manager Billy Martin’s birthday with a night that honors great baseball ejections. If either team’s manager is ejected, all fans receive a free ticket to an upcoming game. That should be enough incentive for one of the skippers to toss a cap and kick some dirt.

New Year’s Celebration – St. Paul Saints

Monday, May 15, 2006

Happy New Year! OK, so the Ides of May isn’t traditionally considered the start of any year, but this is St. Paul - a team whose ownership group includes promoter extraordinaire Mike Veeck. It’s not that much of a stretch. The Saints open the independent American Association’s inaugural season today. We bet the Saints know how to throw a New Year’s ball.

Sea Dogs Mother’s Day Road Race – Portland Sea Dogs

Sunday, May 14, 2006

Portland has found a way to get fans to stay in their seats. They hope to make them too tired to leave. For the sixth consecutive year, the Portland Sea Dogs host a 5K race on Mother’s Day. Entrants in the race don’t have to be mothers. That’s a shame. The mother-running-while-pushing-a-stroller division is something they should consider adding for next year.

Feel like Shakin’ your booty? You’re not the only one. The Altoona Curve and the Connecticut Destroyers had the same idea. Put on your platform shoes, long gold chains and Bee Gees t-shirts and head to the ballpark. Add it all up, that’s a lot of YMCA.

Renaissance Night - Somerset Patriots
Thursday, May 11, 2006

Hey there knights, grab your wenches and head to Commerce Bank Ballpark for a trip back in time. The Somerset Patriots are bringing in actors from a local renaissance fair to entertain the crowd. There will be a mock battle complete with sword fighting on the field before the game, along with pre-game singing and dancing. Fans dressed in costumes from the middle ages receive reduced ticket prices. We here at MinorLeagueDugout.com think admission should be based on the middle-age custom of barter. Admission and four hot dogs for a family of four: one rabbit.

Thirsty Thursdays: Charlotte, Columbus (Ga.), Delmarva, Hagerstown, Jacksonville, Kannapolis, Modesto, Myrtle Beach, New Orleans, Southwest Michigan, Stockton and Tucson.

You can listen to the pre-game festivities on WEEU 830 AM

Tuesday, May 9, 2006

The Durham Bulls, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays’ Triple-A affiliate, are celebrating National Teacher Appreciation Day by giving free tickets to any member of the North Carolina Association of Educators for the nights’ International League contest against the Louisville Bats. No word on whether one of the requirements for the free ticket was having never taught a lacrosse player.

Heads or Tails for Free Admission – Vero Beach
Monday, May 8

Ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? OK, it doesn’t really reach Clint Eastwood level, but you get the idea. Head to Dodgertown’s gates and call a coin flip in the air. Call it right, earn free admission to Vero Beach’s Florida State League game against Dunedin.

Bisons Special Announcement Night – Buffalo Bisons
Sunday, May 7, 2006

The Buffalo Bisons are doing a pretty good job of keeping this promotion under wraps. All the Buffalo front office would say is that they are adding a member to the Bisons’ family. So let’s speculate. A live Bison? A stuffed Bison head? A new mascot that looks like a snow shovel? A plane to shuttle patrons to Florida in the winter? MinorLeagueDugout is on pins and needles.

Cinco de Estrada – Altoona Curve
Friday, May 5, 2006

Many clubs are holding Cinco de Mayo celebrations, but only the Altoona Curve are bringing in Erik Estrada. So the former “CHiPS” star was actually born in New York. He did act in a Mexican soap opera in the early 90s. Estrada will throw out the opening pitch, sing Take Me Out To The Ballgame and sign autographs. Concession stands will sell Mexican Food, piñatas will hang in the stadium and the Altoona Curve staff will wear sombreros.

Free fireworks in: Atlantic City, Albuquerque, Binghamton, Birmingham, Bowie, Bridgeport, Carolina, Charleston, Chattanooga, Colorado Springs, Connecticut, Delmarva, Durham, Frederick, Frisco, Harrisburg, Hickory, Kinston, Lake County, Memphis, Nashville, New Britain, Salt Lake, Springfield, Toledo, Trenton, West Tennessee, West Virginia, and Winston Salem.

National Day Of Prayer – Clearwater Threshers
Thursday, May 4, 2006

The Clearwater Threshers will take part in National Prayer Day by holding a prayer service following their Florida State League game. Usually religious events don’t scream “outrageous fun.” But you have to hand it to the folks in Clearwater for not allowing the expected 100 church groups to interfere with their Thirsty Thursday promotion. Two-for-one cocktails is probably the answer to someone’s prayer.

Other Thirsty Thursday participants: Brevard County, Carolina, Charleston, Charlotte, Daytona, Delmarva, Fort Myers, Fresno, Greensboro, Midland, Nashville, Savannah and West Tennessee.
