Spotlight on AA Ball – 4/23/2008

Lots of great promotions coming up in AA ball. The Reading Phillies have the most charming this week, as they celebrate local legend Joey Bago Donuts, a longtime employee of the team who has grown into a cult favorite between-innings entertainer. [MiLB]

The Huntsville Stars (Brewers) are encouraging people to skip work and come out to the ballpark on the 28th. And you have to love language like this in an official press release: “Naturally, it’d be a great idea to invite the boss, however, if he or she is a complete tool, c’mon out and work on your savage tan and get your drink on with your co-workers instead.” [Huntsville Stars]

Harrisburg Senators (Nationals) catcher Luke Montz is flashing some serious offense (.432) and defense (10 of 15 attempted steals snuffed out). What’s a guy got to do to be called “catcher of the future” around here? [MiLB]

John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Jon Jay is a Springfield Cardinals OF who went 4 of 4 to help Mark Mulder win his second rehab start on his way back to the Bigs. [Wikipedia][SpringfieldCardinals.com]

You hear a lot about the great promotions in the minors, but I don’t think we’ll ever see a better draw than the Midland RockHounds’ (A’s) Trauma Awareness Day, coming your way in May. [Midland RockHounds]
