RICHMOND, VA - The Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the 2012 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, have announced their plans for Salute to Scandal Night on Thursday, August 1st. Headlining the night will be $1 hot dogs available at all of the Flying Squirrels concession stands.
"Scandal night is meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek night and what hotter of a scandal right now than Anthony Weiner," said Flying Squirrels Vice President and COO Todd "Parney" Parnell. "His scandal just couldn't have come at a better time in regards to the Flying Squirrels promotional calendar."
Fans in attendance will be invited that night to tweet pictures enjoying their $1 hot dogs to @GoSquirrels for the chance to win prizes. Other select fans will be invited to participate in contests between innings that pay tribute to certain celebrities who have been in the spotlight for their scandals. Some examples include the "Brett Favre Football Throw" and the "Tiger Woods Closest to the Pin Challenge". To end the night with a bang, the Flying Squirrels will have a postgame fireworks extravaganza courtesy of Coventry Health Care and Your Local Ford Dealers.
The Flying Squirrels host the Portland Sea Dogs (Boston Red Sox) on Thursday night in the finale of a three-game series. Gates will open at 6:00PM and first pitch is scheduled for 7:05PM. Limited tickets for the upcoming homestand are available by contacting the box office at (804) 359-FUNN (3866), on-line at SquirrelsBaseball.com, or visiting the Squirrels Ticket Office at The Diamond.
