MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Tampa Bay Rays’ Double A affiliate is trying a new promotion to get younger fans to the ballpark.
The Montgomery Biscuits will host “Millennial Night” on Saturday, July 21.
“Want free things without doing much work? Well you're in luck!” the team’s tweet reads. “Riverwalk Stadium will be Millennial friendly on Saturday, July 21st with a participation ribbon giveaway just for showing up, napping and selfie stations, along with lots of avocados.”
Three people are seen posing while taking a selfie in the tweet.
Several people on Twitter expressed their dissatisfaction of the promo.
The team responded with a follow-up tweet after the initial uproar.
“Offended? Feel free to fight your battles IRL and visit us at Riverwalk Stadium,” the tweet reads. “Any millennials that actually come by during office hours before next Saturday and submits a valid complaint in person to our ‘Millennial Night Thinktank’ may get a free ticket or two!”
Saturday’s game against the Mississippi Braves is set for a 6:05 p.m. CT first pitch.
