It seems the whole “Bacon USA” theme is catching on! Even the Toledo MudHens are getting involved. On Thursday August 6, the MudHens will have a jersey auction night with an “Egg” design. Why? Well, it’s “Bacon and Eggs” night, and they’ll be hosting the IronPigs who have agreed to wear the “Saturday” Bacon ensemble for that game! If they have “remote bidding” perhaps we should get involved if we know any players on the MudHens at that time.
Also notable on the Toledo web site: They will open with a double-header on April 16. That’s kinda weird to choose to do a 2×7 inning game early in the season when you’ll already need a few of them just to make up for the weather-related problems. Perhaps it’s designed to get them an extra day off later on. They’ll have a “Beer Bash” that starts at 3PM, followed by the two games at 4PM; it does sound like fun. I also noticed that they are cross-promoting with the ECHL Toledo Walleye, who may be hosting a playoff game that night. Beer bash, baseball double-header, then hockey? Golly, don’t expect Toledo sports fans to make it to work on Friday the 17th!
With all this MudHen craziness, I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind you that Toledo is the old stomping ground of our very own GM, Kurt Landes!
See you at the park,
