In the Minors, Strasburg’s an Opening Act for the Monkeys
Bill Veeck would love the way the Harrisburg Senators are promoting tomorrow night's home game.
Here's the email, misspellings and all, that the Senators blasted to fans last night:
"Mark your calenders! Back by popular demand, the cowboy monkeys are at Metro Bank Park on Thursday, Sept. 1 (7:00)! They were so popular the first time around we thought we'd give you another chance to see them! Get your tickets today! Oh, and we'll have Strasburg pitching!"
Stephen Strasburg in a cozy ballpark? That's OK.
But monkeys on dogback?
Now THAT's entertainment.
