Another Veeck stunt. (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news/ap/20020707/ap-nobodynight.html)

Nobody -- not even the die-hard fans -- will be allowed to watch the Charleston Riverdogs' game against the Columbus Redstixx on Monday night. The Riverdogs will continue their tradition of outlandish promotions when they padlock the gates and hold a party, including discounted food and beer, outside the ballpark in an attempt to set the record for the lowest attendance at a professional baseball game on ``Nobody Night.''

During the first five innings, the game will proceed as usual and include contests between innings. Concession workers and ticket takers will be waiting for customers.

That sounds too stupid to be true

It would be nice if that could actually happen at New Comiskey Park.

What if they played a game and NOBODY showed up.

Went to school with the two younger Veeck children. Chris was cool, Lisa was a stone fox and very down to earth. Never met the one who owns the baseball team, but he definitely inherited his Dad's sense of showmenship. Whether it works or not, look at all the press they are getting. I bet the party is free to boot - after all, you better give something back to the fans who paid for a seat...
