The MLB's minor league affiliates are known for their awesome merchandise, incredible concessions, and most of all, their fun promotional nights.
And after the latest announcement by the Staten Island Yankees, it seems fans are NOT going to want to miss the night of Sept. 3 when they face off against the Houston Astros' Single-A affiliate. This promotion is too good to turn down.
Whoever orchestrated this deserves a raise. It couldn't have come at a better time either considering the Astros were just handed down a harsh punishment from the MLB for their sign-stealing scandal that took place from 2017-2019. The reference, obviously, is to the trash cans the Astros would bang on in the dugout to notify the hitter what pitch was coming.
Clearly other teams are fans of the promotion, and why not? Minor league baseball is supposed to be fun, and the New York Yankees would never run a promotion like this, so someone had to do it. What does a Single-A baseball team have to lose here? Nothing! They'll just gain more and more publicity.
See? You can be non-Yankees fans will be attending this game just to take home a souvenir that pays homage in a comedic way to one of the biggest baseball scandals ever.
