Promo Of The Month Nominee: ValleyCats Roll Out Prom Night

Minor League Baseball Golden Bobblehead

The Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar released the five finalists for its top promotion for the month of June. The winner, to be announced next week, will receive an automatic berth into the coveted Golden Bobblehead competition at the Promo Seminar this September in Des Moines, Iowa. This month’s finalists include . . . 

Going to prom is a rite of passage for any teenager—good, bad or indifferent. Since the Tri-City ValleyCats turned 17 this year, they decided it was time to bring prom to Bruno Stadium.

The team decorated the ballpark, created a prom court and invited all teachers and educators out for Teacher Appreciation Night. They even had an on-field “promposal” back in April, when a staff member asked his girlfriend to prom with a special scoreboard message. The ValleyCats also organized a dress drive, offering any fan who donated a lightly used prom dress, bridesmaid dress, formal or semi-formal dress or suit a ticket to Prom Night.
