Brett Favre Night

So the regular season is winding down and the GreenJackets once again are one of the top teams in all of Minor League Baseball. As of today (Aug 4) Augusta has the third best winning percentage among all full season Minor League teams.

Tonight is Brett Favre night at the park and one of the reasons why I have so much fun in Minor League baseball. This promotion has gained national attention. It basically was the brain child of our GM Nick Brown and I wrote the press release for it and sent it to everyone I could. Luckly I got to know some people (darren rovell) in high places that helped get this release blown up and the national attention it deserved.

As I sit here and look at people in Brett Favre jersey's, cheese heads in the stands, and $1 brats and PBR beer being offered today, I can't help but to laugh at some of the crazy promotions that happen in Minor League baseball.
One Brett Favre Jersey....$90

One Cheese Head.....$15

Catching a GreenJackets baseball game when they retire Brett Favre's number and hand out flip-flops....priceless.

There are some things money can't buy....for everything else there is Minor League Baseball.
