Minor-League Baseball Team to Host 'Billy Donovan Night'

For once in my life, I'll actually be rooting against the Yankees.

The Fort Myers Miracle, a minor-league baseball team, announced on its website that it will host Billy Donovan Night on Wednesday, June 20th for its game against the Tampa Yankees. Here's an excerpt from the announcement on the website:

Fans that purchase a ticket, at the box office, for the 7:05 p.m. game against the Tampa Yankees, will see if they experience a seesaw of emotions like Billy Donovan encountered. If anytime during the game, they are not so sure they want to be at Hammond Stadium they can leave and negotiate a release from their ticket purchase.

Patrons that experience a "Billy Donovan" moment will have the option to sit down with a local attorney and strike a deal for an out-clause from their ticket purchase. Part of the negotiating process will involve making a free throw into our on-site basketball hoop.

Fans that make the easy decision to stay will be entered into a drawing for four tickets to a Florida basketball game in Gainesville this upcoming season. We guarantee Billy Donovan will be there!

Fort Myers own Billy Donovan [not THE Billy Donovan; BQR] will throw out the first pitch and waffles will be available at the concession stand.

I wish I could be at that game, but I have to work that afternoon and couldn't possibly make it down to Fort Myers in time. Are there any 3QC readers out there who are interested in attending? If so, let me know. I'd love to post your pictures and/or your account of the event!
