Going Nuts in Modesto

The Modesto Nuts have a new toy and they are proud to show it off.

The Colorado Rockies' California League affiliate installed a new scoreboard complete with a video screen just before the start of the season. They are incorporating video into most of their promotions this season.

The Nuts, who won's Promotion of the Day award on April 6, are in the running for another award later this month for some of their other ideas.

Today they are holding Goofy Neighbor night. They will show video of some of Hollywood's goofiest neighbors (Kramer, Wilson, etc.) on the big screen throughout the game.

In the coming weeks Modesto will also pay tribute to Bond movies (April 11), horror movies (April 23), and the 80s classic, Weird Science (May 4).

They have some other interesting promotions on the schedule, making Modesto an early front runner to claim’s Promotional Organization of the Year Award.

On top of all that, the Modesto Nuts have one of the best logos (right) in sports. The Dugout encourages all readers to make their logo the background on random computer screens. We know for a fact it is already loaded on one of the Palm Beach Post's (Fl.) computers.
