Marry at Fresno Grizzlies promotion

This is hilarious. One of those silly promotions that you will only see in a minor league ballpark. Perhaps this is the best of the year.

The Fresno Grizzlies (AAA Pacific Coast League affiliate of the Houston Astros) will have a marriage promotion coming Thursday. Special about this promotion is that their mascot, Parker T. Bear, will serve as minister. The promotion is called My Big Fat Fresno Wedding. The fun part about the way how Fresno is written below is that it doesn’t correspond with the Greek alphabet. The Greek letter S (Σ = Sigma) is used as the E and the Greek letter P (Π = Pi) is used as N. But all this is a nod to the movie My big fat Greek wedding.

Anyhow, the Grizzlies now have an officially ordained mascot-minister. He got his licence through the internet….
The team is really making a lot of work of this promotion, as Chukchansi Park will be filled with wedding vendors who will help out with mascot and non-mascot weddings. But the biggest attention will go to Parker, who will legit marry anyone interested during the game and will also officiate vow renewal for already-married couples.

Sam Hanson, Grizzlies Marketing Director stated: “People get married without a big wedding all the time, we’re just providing the most colorful backdrop for it.  Getting hitched by Parker at a Grizzlies game will be a memory that lasts a lifetime.”

It can be a cheap wedding: couples looking to marry can pick up two tickets to the game for just 20 bucks with a marriage license, a 50 percent discount off field box prices day of game.  (A marriage license will be needed for a Parker-officiated wedding.) And for those who don’t arrive at the ballpark engaged, there’s always the potential to meet a new mate as it will also be Ladies Night at Chukchansi Park.
