Proving once again that Minor League Baseball can get away with anything when it comes to gameday promotions, on June 18 the Eugene Emeralds, Class-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, hosted the Boise Hawks on “Blue Balls” night. For those of you who might not know, blue balls is a somewhat serious affliction suffered by men when they engage in sexual activity but fail to release, as it were, causing their testicles to swell up and become painful.
Yes, blue balls is a real thing…don’t ask me again.
The festivities on “Blue Balls” night included a spirited game of musical chairs that took place between a pair of mascots and a couple of bat boys. One of the mascots, Doug Fir, cheats his way to victory in the finals, only to receive his comeuppance from the ball boy he so callously tossed aside in the most appropriate way manner befitting “Blue Balls” night.
With a swift kick to the balls.
Video follows the jump…
I’m pretty sure that wasn’t in the script.
