Another Ridiculous Minor League Baseball Promotion Gone Bad


Apparently there is nothing a minor league baseball team won’t try in order to draw fans to their games. But this latest promotion by the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp is probably not the best way to go about it. The Jumbo Shrimp are doing their normal Thirsty Thursday promotions but on top of that they are also doing a promotion called ‘You Might Be the Father’s Day’ where they will be handing out free pregnancy tests. Yes you read that right. Pregnancy tests. Why you ask? Well to quote the Jumbo Shrimps from their website “So you’ll know if you need to return for Sunday’s Father’s Day game. It will be an evening filled with suspense, intrigue and manila envelopes.” Not sure how this is going to go over. Let’s see what people were saying about this latest minor league team promotion.

And we thought that the Ogden Raptors ‘Hourglass Appreciation Night’ was bad. What’s the follow up to this? Are they going to have people go on Maury to make sure that they are indeed the father? They must really be hurting for fans or can’t afford to actually pay people that have the common sense to come up with legit promotions that aren’t marketing ploys. Can’t wait to see what these minor league teams come up with next.
