Ted Williams popsicle night is on tonight
Originally published on:
BISBEE -- The much anticipated "Ted Williams Popsicle Night" finally happens tonight at Warren Ballpark.
Once gates open at 5:30 p.m. for the final game of a four-game series between the Bisbee-Douglas Copper Kings and the Cananea Mineros, the first 500 fans will receive a free popsicle.
The media attention the promotion -- which was the inspiration of Copper Kings General Manager John Guy -- has been astounding. There have been mentions of the promotion in the New York Daily News, Sports Illustrated, a variety of Internet news sites, and it is reported that ESPN will be sending a camera crew down from Tucson to tape tonight's festivities.
A thousand popsicles have been ordered for tonight's game. The other 500 will be sold at the concession stand.
