“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.”
Headlining the night will be $1 hot dogs available at all of the Flying Squirrels concession stands.
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
The Flying Squirrels will host the Portland Sea Dogs (Boston Red Sox) in the finale of a three-game series. Last night, Richmond (52-58) defeated the Sea Dogs (54-56), 3-2.
