Upcoming promotions highlight an important week of baseball in the South Bay


The four-time defending Cecil Cup champion South Bay Scorpions are pleased to announce that Ricky Peppers Bobblehead Night is scheduled for this Wednesday's critical game against River Cities.

"This is pretty cool," Peppers said as he was presented with a sneak preview of the bobblehead doll. "They even got my eye color right."

Ricky Peppers Bobblehead Night is the focal point of a week of Scorpion fan celebrations. "This is our first season in Southern California, and our attendance is up from our seasons in Florida," owner/GM Michael Weintraub stated. "We finally have some competition in the Zotti League again, and our fans have been superb. We wanted to reward them for their faith."

South Bay, currently three games behind the River City Paddlewheelers in the Zotti League standings, have nine games remaining against their foes, including seven at the beautiful new Scorpion Pit, in Redondo Beach, CA.

"Monday night will be Baseball Cap Night at the Pit, and we're giving out Bill Turek autographed bats to all youngsters on Thursday night, in honor of my own son's birthday on 5 September," Weintraub explained.

Early word around the South Bay is that this week's series against the Paddle Wheelers, which kicked off with a bang with last night's thrilling come-from-behind victory, has electrified the nascent fanbase. "We were at 89% full last night, and we're hearing about sell-outs for the rest of the week. Our market is huge, and our fan interest is 100%, and our shirts and caps are flying off the shelves. We love our fans and can't wait to honor them and fight for the league. It's been a while since we had some competition in the league, and, while I don't want to make it a habit, it's a nice change of pace," Weintraub said.

"This is just too cool," Peppers agreed, not taking his eye off his bobblehead doll. Across the clubhouse, ace closer Junior Cuomo was heard calling his agent, asking when his bobblehead night will be.

"Umm, if you'll excuse me," Weintraub said. "I have to call the manufacturer. We're going to have Junior Cuomo Bobblehead Night, umm, next month on our final home game before the playoffs."

You know, connecting the promotions with a player would be a great idea for the game.
Now just watch the AI manager give Peppers a day off on his night.

(Which reminds me: I need to set my 7-day lineups.)
