MILB’s Benjamin Hill joins the podcast to talk about the best promotions in 2018 in Minor League baseball, which is a great starting point for the 2018 Best of Gameops.com Awards. We are currently collecting nomination for all categories for the 2018 Best of Awards, please click here to make a nomination.
Ben notes promotions from the Daytona Tortugas, Columbia Fireflies, Frisco Rough Riders, Charlestown Riverdogs, Lansing Lugnuts, Eugene Emeralds and Fresno Grizzlies. He also notes a great sponsored contest called Beat the Roach that promotes an Exterminator in his wide-ranging interview. Ben is always a great guest and with the awards on the horizon we love to hear from him about standout promotions and teams leading into the Best of Gameops.com Awards. Cudo and Hill also discuss Copa Nights and whether or not the promotions associated with them broke through.
“Have you ever been to a minor league front office? It’s all Millennials. It’s Millennials making fun of themselves. And now they are making fun of you cause you are being an idiot.”

Before attending tonight’s Charlotte Knights game, I was able to stop by Levine Children’s Hospital. It was an honor to get a tour of the facility and do an interview at their in-house Seacrest Studios media center. A reminder, I’m raising money for Vs. Cancer this season at pledgeit.org/Bensbiz #charlotte #vscancer #levineschildrenshospital #charlotteknights
Next we have a quick interview with national touring act Cameron Hughes. Our new Entertainment Act pages highlight acts, including where they came from and what they are up to next. Cameron shares some background about his act as a great preview to his new Entertainment Act page.
