Manatees to the Rescue

In the wake of the FWBL leaving ticket holders and advertisers holding the proverbial bag, the Brevard County Manatees have come to the rescue.

Manatees General Manager Kyle Smith issued this press release yesterday:

Manatees Announce “For the Love of the Game” Promotion

Viera, FL – The Brevard County Manatees, advanced-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, announced Monday a special “For the Love of the Game” offer.

While the Manatees share your disappointment with the suspension of the Surge’s inaugural season, we want to assure that you can still see baseball right here on the Space Coast! Simply bring any unused Surge tickets for games dated November 27 and later to the Space Coast Stadium box office, and we’ll give you an equal amount of tickets good for any 2010 Manatees’ home game (excludes FSL All-Star Game)!

“We want to make sure that no baseball fan in Brevard is left out in the cold,” offered Kyle Smith, Manatees’ general manager. “By opening our doors to Surge ticket holders and sponsors, we hope to ease the blow of a shortened season.”

FWBL and Surge corporate sponsors are also invited to contact the Manatees to discuss sponsorship opportunities at exclusive discounted rates.

Opening Night for Manatees is April 8th at Space Coast Stadium. More information on the Brevard County Manatees is available at or by phone at (321) 633-9200.

A very wise business decision by the Manatees. They might pick up some customers and advertisers they didn’t have before, and they show how a legitimate baseball business is run.
