The Akron RubberDucks aren't pulling punches with a promotion mocking embroiled NBC anchor Brian Williams.
The Indians' Double-A affiliate announced Wednesday that will be hosting "Brian Williams' Pants-on-Fire Night" on April 27, National Tell a Story Day.
Williams was suspended six months without pay for embellishing accounts of his time covering the Iraq war and Hurricane Katrina, so the RubberDucks are giving the first 100 fans a pair of suspenders.
The team will also have a fan named Brian Williams "read tall tales" and a pair of his pants will be burned. Any fan named Brian Williams will be allowed to throw out a ceremonial first pitch.
Fans will play the popular icebreaker game "two truths and a lie" between innings, but the RubberDucks have renamed it "two truths and a Brian Williams."
Minor-league baseball is the best.
