Staten Island Throwing Flames

Staten Island Yankees throw flames and get an early promotion win in January.

The first red hot poker promotional night has been seared into the 2020 Baseball Season.

Its the Staten Island Yankees who skirted the overt jab opting for clever. Baseball is reeling from the Astros sign-stealing scandal fallout but these Yankees were poised to strike and capitalize on the buzz.  The team is giving away 500 mini garbage cans, perhaps allowing their fans to signal appreciation for their team.

Twitter (and everyone) is talking about this promotion, which is really what teams seek out of promotions like this.

Great media-buzzing promotion, which could be an afterthought next September. But on this January day the Staten Island Yankees have a winner, because everyone is talking about it.
