3. Awful Night
The Altoona Curve (Double-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates) have found a winner, or loser, depending on how you look at it, of a promotion in “Awful Night,” which has been going on every year since 2003. Awful Night features a bevy of items that are not to be enjoyed.
Music by William Shatner and Milli Vanilli. David Hasselhoff videos. Spam sandwiches. Intentional mispronunciations. Bad costumes. Instead of batting averages, players' "failure averages" are announced. Bobbing for onions. Just a taste of what goes on once a year in Altoona.
