The Eugene Emeralds (Class-A Northwest League), a Padres affiliate, actually had a promotion called “Blue Balls Night” last month. (Don’t ask). And the festivities would not have been complete I guess without their mascot, Doug Fir, getting kicked below the tree line by a Little Leaguer during a game of musical chairs.
So unfortunate. Just be glad it wasn’t Getting Hit In the Head With an Ax Night.
