Gotta Love Minor League Baseball

Image hosted by

So I'm at Arrowhead Credit Union Park, taking in the game between the host Inland Empire 66ers and the Visalia Oaks and then the announcement is made:
"All fans in attendance shall receive a free loaf of bread and tube of toothpaste."

No shit. I can't make this up, people.

After the game, as we flocked to the parking lot under the cover of the weekly Friday Night post game fireworks show, all fans actually received a loaf of Sara Lee white bread and a tube of toothpaste. God, I love the minor leagues.
Final score... Sixers 6, Visalia 4.

Stockton 36-24 --
