In Port Charlotte, Rocco moustache night
Oh, those wacky Stone Crabs.
The Rays Class A affiliate is hosting Rocco Baldelli Moustache Night on Wednesday at the Charlotte Sports Park.
Noting that Baldelli "arrived in Port Charlotte with a respectable moustache that has since transformed into arguably the best moustache in the Minor Leagues if not all of professional baseball," the Stone Crabs are making the following offer "in tribute to the sheer awesomeness" of Baldelli’s facial hair:
All fans with a naturally-grown moustache who purchase a ticket to Wednesday's game receive a free team hat and a free ticket to Saturday’s game against Lakeland that features a post-game fireworks show.
Also, they will hold a “Best in Class” moustache contest in several categories, and play clips of Tom Selleck and songs by Frank Zappa and stage "a variety of additional moustache-oriented games and activities.''
Tickets to Wednesday's game are $6-$11, and to take advantage of the moustache offer must be purchased in person at the stadium box office. For other info, see stonecrabsbaseball.com or call call 941-206-HITS (4487).
