A Call for Ideas

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

I can think of few baseball gimmicks that are more wonderful than the Miller Park sausage races (as well as the Nationals Park presidents races). The sausage race has everything you would want from in-game entertainment: brevity, simplicity, and relevance to the home city. Both races put the Marlins' own offering, an animated airboat race featuring Billy the Marlin and his "family" on the jumbotron, to shame.

But it doesn't have to be that way. With the new Marlins stadium opening in 2012, we should be able to think of a few good ideas for a live-action mascot race at the park. Consider this an open call for suggestions, leave yours in the comments.

A race between the Mermaids... Baywatch-style, preferably in slow motion.
