How 'bout a Brat and a Beer for Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there, especially The Dugout's.

Those who saw that Sioux Falls won the Promo of the Day award probably also noticed The Dugout mentioned that there are several other Mothers Day promos across the country.

Connecticut, for instance, is doing a diamond ring dig. In this popular promo, the Defenders bury a diamond ring in their infield then allow all women in attendance onto the field to try to dig for it. What happens if two women simultaneously find the diamond? Talk about your blood diamonds.

Pawtucket is giving away a rose to the first 3,000 mothers who walk through the gates. Clinton is giving away two tickets on American Airlines. Savannah’s celebration is sponsored in part by The Lady and Sons, whose founder, Paula Dean, has a show on the Food Network.

Albuquerque, however, might have the oddest giveaway. The Isotopes are giving women 15 years and older a copy of the Isotopes Cookbook. Now, The Dugout likes the idea of a cookbook giveaway, but isn’t it a little too old school to give women cookbooks on Mothers Day? Why not give them a matching broom and dust rag?

That being said, The Dugout respects any mother who would spend her special day at the ballpark. Fellas, if you find a women willing to go to a baseball game on her special day, you’ve found a keeper.
