Bowie Baysox introduce 1K beer run

The Bowie Baysox have decided that their promotions need more alcohol. To fix that problem, they’ve decided to hold a 1K beer run before tomorrow night’s game.

The instructions are simple. Step One, drink. Step Two, run. Repeat.

The Baltimore Sun has more details:

The run will happen at 5:45 p.m. Saturday, May 26, before the team plays the Altoona Curve.
Runners will be hoofing it around the field’s warning track beginning at 5:45 p.m. Each time they finish a lap, they’ll get a 12-ounce beer to drink while they run they next one.
The ballpark will be serving the beers in 16-ounce cups in case things get sloshy.
“We don’t want spillage out there,” [Baysox Assistant General Manager Phil] Wrye says.

One hundred people running around the field drinking three beers in a matter of minutes and a warning track soaked in alcohol by game time. I see no way that this can go wrong.

If you were one of the lucky 100 to score a ticket to this booze-a-thon, good luck. And as always, send me videos, people.

Since this is a first for Bowie, I don’t have a video to offer you of past beer runs. Please accept this video from 2007 of Dan dancing with the Baysox mascot instead.
