Minor League Promos Are Nothing 'Short' of Wacky in '08

On May 16, 2008 the Arkansas Traveles of the Texas League (I know, how can a team from Arkansas be in a league from Texas?!?) will hold "Midget Wrestling Night" at 6:45pm prior to the team's game that evening. This won't be the first time the fans in Little Rock enjoy the strange marriage of midget wrestling and baseball. The event has been a staple of the Travelers' promo schedule for years, owing to the vision of former team owner Bill Valentine, who took a page out of major-league promoter Bill Veeck's publicity-stunt handbook and sent a midget to bat for the Travelers. This should be a very successful and fun event for baseball and midget wrestling fans worldwide.
