SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — The San Rafael Pacifics independent minor-league baseball team is offering a personal "Salute to Indoor Plumbing" on Friday, July 26, courtesy of Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Marin County. Echoing the Pacifics’ retro theme of “Baseball...Like it Used To Be,” the team is celebrating some of the historic moments that occurred during the early days of baseball.
On the Fourth of July, the Pacifics hosted an exhibition of 1880's era baseball and now will doff their caps for the great 19th century invention of indoor plumbing. The first 500 fans through the gates at Albert Park will receive a free Pacifics toilet plunger.
"In our continuing effort to recognize the positive cultural contributions that correspond with the growth of the game of baseball, the Pacifics are pleased to offer a salute to the indispensability of indoor plumbing," said Pacifics President and General Manager Mike Shapiro. "We're giving our fans who like to go deep a very special toilet plunger to remember us by when bases are juiced, so to speak.”
Additionally, while first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., the game has now been declared a "Bidet Game" with one very lucky fan winning his or her very own bidet, also courtesy of Roto-Rooter. Other in-game entertainment, such as “Musical Toilet Seats,” will further highlight this unique promotion.
The Pacifics hope to have the stands overflowing on Friday, July 26 for this special event. Tickets are available here.
