PRESS RELEASE – Traditionally, the state of Florida’s 29 electoral votes are coveted amongst presidential candidates, but on Thursday, August 25, Hammond Stadium will be the third stop of BOBBLECTION 2016 presented by Jelly Beadz, WJBX News, Talk & More and Beasley Media.
The nationally recognized promotion will include results from eight minor league ballparks over six dates and the results for Fort Myers will be tweeted out during a 7:05 p.m. game against the Palm Beach Cardinals.
Joining the Miracle in the national BOBBLECTION will be the Lincoln Salt Dogs, Charleston RiverDogs, St. Paul Saints, Hudson Valley Renegades, Mahoning Valley Scrappers, Lakewood Blue Claws and the Hickory Crawdads.
The gates and polls will open at 6 p.m. 1,000 total bobbleheads will be available; 500 with the likeness of Donald Trump and 500 of Hillary Clinton. The first candidate to run out of bobbleheads will be declared the winner of the coveted swing state of Florida.
Now, with the popularity of the two major party candidates varying from voter to voter, the Miracle want to provide other options for the public of Southwest Florida. The Miracle will give out an alternate bobblehead for voters that select the “other” box on the ballot. Fans that vote “other” can choose between a bobblehead of local radio legends Stan or Haney from 96 KROCK.
Additionally, the Miracle are offering a Third Party Party to fans that vote “other”. Third party voters will receive a voucher for a $10 All You Can Eat wristband with a food platform of international and domestic flavor. The Third Party Party will have unlimited green tea (for the green and the tea party supporters) tacos, fried rice, egg rolls, biscuits and gravy, peas and carrots, mashed potatoes and pork from 6:30-8:30 p.m. And, because this is America, the Third Party Party will have $2 domestic draft beers.
Not just for third party voters, Miracle mascot Sway will be at the front of the Third Party Party to help “sway” fans to join the All You Can Eat fun, but voters for Hillary or Donald have to pay $14.
At the Third Party Party, the Miracle will give away two Jill Stein steins, a Miracle mug with Stein sporting a Miracle jersey. Also, in honor of Gary Johnson, the Miracle will bestow one lucky fan with a Johnson’s gift package featuring: bubble bath for a third party voter to sooth themselves after November’s election results; Tylenol to ease the inevitable headaches of the next four years; No-More-Tears to try and prevent weeping; and children’s products to take care of your kids now for fear of how their future may be affected.
The Department of Lee County Elections will be on-site to educate, inform and encourage people to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming elections.
The Miracle want to welcome all to Hammond Stadium to celebrate democracy, the right to vote, drink beer and watch baseball. For tickets and information, call the Miracle offices at (239) 768-4210 or visit http://www.miraclebaseball.com.
