Because of the overwhelming fallout from the announcement last week of “Eliot Spitzer Night,” the Macon Georgia Music baseball team will conduct an online poll of fans to determine whether the promotion will be held, according to Jay Adams of The Macon Telegraph.
“The Music and the (South Coast) league have received an abundance of media attention since the announcement of Eliot Spitzer Night,” assistant GM Jason Gold said in the statement. “ ... Many fans want the promotion to be carried out and many want it to be canceled.”
Starting this week, fans can vote on the team's Web site. The event is scheduled for Friday, the 13th of June.
The team would invite the disgraced governor of New York to the game to throw out the first pitch.
A trip to New York would be given away, as well as a one-night stay in the Mayflower Hotel, in Washington.
Wire taps would be placed around the stadium.
The ninth fan – Spitzer was known as Client No. 9 in FBI documents – into the ballpark would receive a free prize pack.
Fans with the name Eliot, Spitzer or Kristen, along with any fan from New York, would receive $1 off admission. Any fan who has ever resigned from a position would also get $1 off admission.
Fans would be able to use ATMs at the ballpark for cash withdrawals not to exceed $5,000 per hour.
