Get Rich Or Spend Nine Innings Tryin'

money.jpegTimes are tight these days, and we could all use a little extra cash. But acquiring extra cash usually requires extra work, and that’s no fun at all. Why not just head to your local Minor League stadium in order to obtain the riches you so desire? This is a much better path to potential financial salvation.

Last month, the Lake County Captains instituted their “Big Win Wednesday” promotion. Here’s how it works:

“The Captains will give away $1,000 in cash and prizes at every Wednesday night
home game


for the remainder of the season. The prizes include one (1) $500
winner, one (1) $100 winner, ten (10) $10 gas card winners, and twenty (20) $5
Captains gift card winners.

Starting Wednesday, June 25th, the first
1,000 fans through the turnstiles will receive an envelope containing anything
from a dime to a certificate for $500 cash.”

(Thanks to Lake County Promotions Manager Jonathan Levey for the info).

A similar promotion is being staged by the Connecticut Defenders on Friday, July 11th. Defenders Director of Sales Johnny Gill writes:

ConnecticutDefenders.jpg“The 1st 1000 adults get $1 and a raffle ticket, and those numbers
will be drawn throughout the night for cash prizes of $5, $25, $50, $100 and $500.”

And speaking of the aforementioned Johnny Gill, I received an email earlier this afternoon touting the fact that he recently worked his 300th consecutive game as the Defenders’ on-field MC. This email was signed “Proud Staff”, despite the fact that it came from Gill’s email account.

I would like to encourage this practice in the future. If any Minor League front office members would like to tout their accomplishments while half-heartedly pretending to be someone else, then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
