A Minor League team in Cleveland had a Major League promo night

Thursday August 7th, 2014

The movie Major League is one of the best sports movies of all time, and it's particularly embraced in Cleveland (the city where the movie is set). To celebrate this year, the Lake County Captains (the local minor league team) hosted a Major League night, with special fan giveaways and appearances from famous Cleveland athletes.

According to MiLB's press release, there was "a life-sized cutout of Skipper with 32 removable pieces like the cutout of Indians' owner Rachel Phelps from movie. Each piece [was] sold for $10 with proceeds to Captains Charities." They also handed out Jobu bobbleheads (Major League fans will remember Jobu as Pedro Cerrano's good luck charm/spiritual leader).

Appearances included Austin Carr, Campy Russell, Jessica "Evil" Eye, Jock Callander, and more. Check out some photos from the event:
