As you know, we love promotions that are deep and wide, full of fun details and thought. Great example from the PawSox this weekend.

After a feisty and spirited series at Fenway Park last week between the best-in-baseball Boston Red Sox and the third-place New York Yankees, the Pawtucket Red Sox plan to host an “Evil Empire Weekend” at McCoy Stadium when the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the Triple-A Yankees, make their first visit of the season to McCoy Stadium on Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6.
To start, any fans named Joe or Kelly will be admitted for free to that weekend’s games, while any fans self-identifying as Tylers or Austins will be banned from the premises. In addition, fans who confess to being named Aaron, Gary, Aroldis, Didi, CC, Jacoby, Masahiro, Giancarlo (or Mike)
will be charged double the price of a regular ticket. All Yankee fans will, of course, be warmly welcomed.Out on Mondor Way, PawSox fans will be able to test their “Kelly-esque” accuracy throughout the weekend, with a pitiable Yankee fan appearing in a dunk tank for fans of all ages to submerge with pinpoint command. The dunk tank comes compl
iments of Absolute Fun Party Rentals in Cranston, RI.There will also be a costume contest at Saturday’s game, where one lucky fan dressed in his or her best (but tasteful) “anti-Yankee” apparel will win a free pair of
2018 season tickets at McCoy. The winner will be chosen by crowd vote immediately after the Saturday game and shortly before that evening’s “Pixar-The Incredibles Fireworks Show.”Highlights from the Red Sox’s historic 2004 ALCS comeback vs. the Yankees will also be shown on the video board throughout the weekend, along with other dramatic Boston conquests from history (of which there are many).
