In an update to yesterday's post about the suspended bat boy, the Fort Myers Miracle (the Twins' single-A affiliate) have offered the batboy an honorary spot for their next game, which happens to be a day they are having dairy products promotions.
All kids 14 and under will receive a pint of milk upon entering the stadium. The Miracle will also have a cow at the front gates and literature will be passed out on the importance of drinking milk. Empty milk cartons will be placed around the ballpark, so fans can donate money to the out-of-work batboy.
"Similar to a rehab stint, we want to help this kid stay on top of his game," Miracle GM Steve Gliner said. "Instead of crying over spilt milk, we decided to offer him the honorary post."
