A novel promotion

Phil recently noted the lawsuit which followed the Angels' refusal to give a handbag to Michael Cohn (a man), during a ladies-only promotion, Tote Bag Night.

The Altoona Curve, a minor league team, is responding with their own promotion, "Frivolous Lawsuit Night." On July 2, among other humorous gimmicks, they will give a pink totebag to the first 137 men who enter the ballpark, lukewarm coffee to the first 137 ladies, and to the first 137 kids, a beach ball with a warning not to ingest it. I wonder if that would pass muster under California law....

Thanks to webdoyenne for the link, and I second Kevin Quinn's response in the comments to Phil's post: "God bless the spirit of Bill Veeck."
