“We wanted to take this opportunity to give Jackson’s fans an outlet to gather and remember a man who changed the landscape of music over the last 40 years,” said Golden Baseball League CEO Dave Kaval. “When you look at how many people want to attend the memorial at Staples Center, we felt the need to give people who don’t win these lottery tickets a chance to come out and honor Jackson along with other fans.”Talk about shameless promotion.
Fans who dress up like Michael Jackson in any fashion will receive free admission to Tuesday’s game. It doesn’t matter if you’re “Black or White” just as long as the “Man in the Mirror” looks like Michael Jackson, you get in for free.
The game will feature Jackson’s music all-night long, and several appropriate-themed between-inning contests such as a moon-walking contest, a Michael Jackson dance off, as well as great prizes for the winner of a Michael Jackson look-alike contest. And considering the Armada won its last home game in walk-off fashion in the 11th inning in front of more than 2100 fans, you can bet the baseball game itself will be a “Thriller.”That is so "Bad."
