Minor league team plans "Eliot Spitzer Night"

Proof that anything goes when it comes to minor league team promotions, Macon Music of the independent South Coast League is planning an “Eliot Spitzer Night” to capitalize on the latest transgressions of the now former New York Governor. 

The club plans to invite Spitzer to throw out the first pitch and attend the game.  Other plans for the promotion include:

    • The Music will give away a trip to New York and a one-night stay at the Mayflower Hotel.
    • The ninth fan – or Client No. 9, as Spitzer was known in the prostitution ring – into the ballpark will receive a free Music prize pack.
    • Fans with the name Eliot, Spitzer or Kristen, along with any fan from New York, will receive $1 off admission. Any fan who has ever resigned a position will also receive $1 off admission.
    • The Music will play Frank Sinatra songs throughout the night.
    • Wire taps will be placed around the stadium.
    • Fans will be able to use ATMs in the ballpark available for cash withdrawals not to exceed $5,000 per hour.

The Spitzer promo won’t take place till June 13 so time will tell if this scandal will still be front and center in the public’s minds.
