One year they played William Shatner singing

Awful Night, July 31, 2007, Altoona Curve
Usually bush-league teams aim to please, but not on this night.
On its annual Awful Night, the creative Altoona front office strives to make the Blair County Stadium experience as unpleasant as possible.
In past years the team has handed out giveaways such as squares of bubble wrap and color photos of a removed gall bladder. Between innings the video board has featured clips of Ben Affleck movies and David Hasselhoff videos. Meanwhile, non-celebrities have signed autographs and fans have munched on Spam and Cheese sandwiches.
The players are treated poorly, too, as their failing averages are posted whenever they come to bat, instead of their batting averages.

Can they possibly sign Ken Hill to a minor-league contract to start the game?
