Promotion Of The Day

Usually this space will be designated for a minor league club, but I thought the Blue Jays should get credit for a creative promotion worthy of the minors.

Perhaps B.J. Ryan’s $47 million shoulder going under the knife was the final straw, as the team is asking fans to help in their road to recovery with “Jays Anatomy Night” on Wednesday against the Orioles.

The spoof on the hit ABC television series, a favorite of BA college guru Aaron Fitt, asks fans to bring first aid supplies to the ballpark as a symbolic gesture “to help stop the bleeding”–the team’s DL includes Roy Halladay, Victor Zambrano, Gustavo Chacin and Reed Johnson.

The first 5,000 fans to make a donation will receive a complimentary Blue Jays baseball cap. Donations will go to the Canadian Red Cross.
