Now At Shortstop, Number 9, Eliot Spitzer!

And the hits just keep on coming! Like something out of Bull Durham, Minor League club the Macon Music has stepped up to the plate with this zany promotion: June 13th is Eliot Spitzer Night! Elements for the promotion include:

- The Music will give away a trip to New York and a one-night stay at the Mayflower Hotel.

- The ninth fan – or Client No. 9, as Spitzer was known in the prostitution ring – into the ballpark will receive a free Music prize pack.

- Fans with the name Eliot, Spitzer or Kristen, along with any fan from New York, will receive $1 off admission. Any fan who has ever resigned a position will also receive $1 off admission.

- The Music will play Frank Sinatra songs throughout the night.

- Wire taps will be placed around the stadium.

- Fans will be able to use ATMs in the ballpark available for cash withdrawals not to exceed $5,000 per hour.

- The 871st fan through the gates will receive a gift certificate for the team store.

I'm not sure what I should balk at more, Mister Spitzer or this promotion. Ah, schadenfreude, you're America's MVP for all seasons!
