Cubs Minor League Affiliate Goes Viral With ‘Beer Bat’ Giveaway
Will the Cubs bring this hot prospect from the minors up to the big leagues?
This was absolutely everywhere on social media over the weekend and you can see why. These are incredible and quite practical.
There is no good reason why these can't be standard at all ballparks. We're already paying 12 bucks for a beer at Wrigley. You're telling me that people wouldn't pony up at least 30 dollars for one of these in the first inning and then just fill it up with the rest of your beers as you buy them. These would be HUGE in the bleachers. They're perfect for drinking in big crowds. They're hard to spill and easy to hold. The only downside is that you can't really set them down, but the bleacher creatures rarely ever put a beer down until it's finished so it shouldn't be a problem.
This is the first year the Myrtle Beach Pelicans have been an affiliate of the Cubs and this is a wonderful way to introduce yourself to a fan base.
The Pelicans had a lot of fun with it as well. They were inundated with requests for beer bats. They couldn't sell them directly to fans for their GM apparently found a loophole.
Not really sure how they got around licensing rules with this but I'm not their lawyer so I don't really care.
Want one of your own? I know you do. You might have to wait a few weeks because they're, unsurprisingly after this weekend, on backorder. But if you order one now, you can probably have one by the Fourth of July. For 20 bucks that's a pretty good deal.
Your move Cubs. These need to be in the bleachers ASAP.
P.S. They also have incredible specialty jerseys. The Pelicans are so hot right now.
