Do Minor League Fans Have More Fun?

The Quad Cities River Bandits, a Cardinals Class A Affiliate, recently ran a fan contest for a crazy promotion idea.  The 1st place winner, Bandit Wedding, will involve a couple getting married at the park. But my favorite is the 2nd place winner, Van Down By The River, in which an old beat-up van is placed just beyond the stadium’s friendly confines. Fans will win the chance to sit in the van and watch the game, and if a home run ball strikes the van, they’ll share a jackpot.  Check out this sketch in case you aren’t familiar with the origins of the “van down by the river” phrase.
