A minor league baseball team in Virginia intends to poke fun at New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and other celebrities with a "Salute to Scandal Night."
RICHMOND, Va. -- A minor league baseball team in Virginia intends to poke fun at New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and other celebrities with a "Salute to Scandal Night."
The Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels of the Eastern League intend to sell hot dogs for $1 on Thursday. The team says fans also can enter a contest by tweeting photos during the game showing how they are enjoying their hot dogs.
Weiner has acknowledged sending lewd photos and messages to women online.
Flying Squirrels vice president and chief operation officer Todd Parnell says the promotion is "meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek night."
Other contests will poke fun at scandals involving athletes, including a "Brett Favre football throw" and "Tiger Woods closest to the pin challenge."
The team is an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
