PAGE B—JfAUGATPCK NEWS (CONN.), TPESDAY, APRIL 3, 1951 Minor League Uses Gimmick Come-On To Get Audiences Geo. Trantman By JIM HART NBA Staff Correspondent New York—(NBA)—Golden base balls for fans, lavish pre-game shows, flowers, jewelry, dishes—al the gate gimmicks imaginable — are going into the_ inost grandiose t i c ket - selling campaign minor league' baseball ever saw. ' The National Association o f P r o f e s nionai Baseball Leagues, headed ,.by. George., TraUtman, has prepared a booklet of park- filling schemes K- « for-fbwners ter- L • rlfie'd by major- 1 e ajj u e radio and-television. This being Golden Anniversary year; for example, much is "ado about seeing that the' fan takes an active—i.e. paying—part In the celebration. • Trautman -suggests' a gold-colored baseball for opening 1 day, a lucky fan'to get it as a souvenir. Old-time stars and umpires- should be given "nights." Special parades, ladies' night, dads'..night,- sons' night, family night, Lou' Gehrig night and sandlot night are designed to increase receipts. There's reference' to 1 a veterans' organizations night with' the" caution .'"Jo plan carefully "so that not top many veterans become nonpaying guests/' On orchids; night, orchids wholesaling for -IS cents apiece, should be presented to the first 500 women who purchase tickets. Jeweled sea tier-pins depicting players in action cost owners; 20 cents each, last season drew 3058 fair ones to a game in Topeka, sold out other stadia. Drinking glasses are suggested as .gifts — • especially ones with scenes of "Casey at the Bat," designed by cartoonist Willard Mullin of the Scripps-Howard Newspapers. Although the price of these : is high, the return on an investment of $468 is a minimum of 8640 paid admissions. The T-shirt gag is a dilly. The ball club makes and sells a bunch of T-shirts in kids' sizes, each bearing tho team's insignia. Every kid wearing one belongs to a quasi-official club, the members' of which gain free admission when accompanied by their fathers. Pop pays! Hi, Neighbor! night is pointed out as ,a sure-fire park filler: The entrepreneur has two towns to draw from, but must depend upon the mayor for help. Mayor A asks Mayor B to bring along the town .band and 'enough people for a jubilee the next.time his town's team visits A. Later in the season, it's the other way around. APPLE PIE NIGHT, TOO bring pies. The champion bakeress is selected by a panel of businessmen, a la county fair, or by the players. . . \ On candid-camera night, amateur photographers have free run of the field during pre-game batting practice, which is extended an hour. One serious note of caution is sounded by Trautman. Pointing out that May 20 is Armed Forces Day, the NAPBL, chief advises free admission for all men in uniform and all disabled veterans, but magnates should not try to capitalize on the observance for publicity. Nor should recognition of service men stop there, the booklet says. It should keep up all season long. The most hilarious spot in the book involves si script for a sort of play concerning .the history of baseball. It suggests that "A former professional-actress will jump at the chance to help you organize an evening of pageantry." It ends with the sharp reminder"NOTE: Plan this as a late- season climax." The later the better. ; N.Y.
