Only in the Appalachian League

As reported in this Johnson City Press story, a while back, City Council member and then mayor Pete Paduch tried and failed to get into a Johnson City Cardinals game without paying, and later confessed that he did not have the $3 for a ticket. Now, the Cardinals are planning a promotion based on this story:

"Foundation President Jeff Banyas said the JCSF officials figured they might be able to turn all of that negative attention into a plus this year by promoting the Aug. 8 game against the Bluefield Orioles as Mayor’s Night, during which all fans may enter free if they tell ticket booth workers, 'I don’t have $3.'"
