Minor league team apologizes for promotion mocking player’s defense

Monday April 25th, 2016

Minor league baseball teams always come up with unique and creative promotional ideas, but is it possible to go too far?

Broxton isn’t exactly a great fielder. In 757 career minor league games in left and center, he’s got 37 errors. Maybe that’s why the Storm Chasers decided to scrap the promotion and issue an apology.

Maybe Broxton will prove them all wrong and snag some web gems instead.
