When it comes to promotions at minor league baseball games, everything is on the table.
Everything that doesn’t have to do with Alex Rodriguez, that is.
The Charlotte Stone Crabs, Single-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, had a hilarious promotion planned for Friday’s game against the Tampa Yankees. Ladies and gentlemen, we present “Juice Box Night.” [tweet https://twitter.com/JoshVitale/status/601786810998599680 align=’center’]
Hey, it’s just a juice box, right? There’s no way it’s a reference to a certain Yankees designated hitter’s steroid use, right? Well, here’s the caption on the box:
“The Sports Drink. 100% Juiced. “Side Affects include: tainted records, inflated ego, omission from the Hall of Fame, and more!”
OK, that’s definitely about A-Rod, and that’s definitely pretty funny. Apparently someone in New York wasn’t too amused, though, as the Stone Crabs canceled the event before the game — a 4-1 Charlotte win — and even issued an apology.

Our advice? Just think outside the box.
