Friday To-Do: Travs vs. Nats

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2008 at 9:37 AM


Not Lil Kato or Beautiful Bobby Dean

6:45 p.m., Dickey-Stephens Park. $6-$10.

Of course it's a manufactured rivalry. The Travs and the Naturals have only played eight times. Plus, it's the minor leagues, where rivalries don't really play out since teams often lose players as soon as they get on a roll. Still, each swept the other in the first two homestands, so you know the hometown fans — even those who come solely to drink tall beers and eat peanuts — will be whooping and hollering to keep the streak alive. The series begins Friday and stretches through Monday. On Friday, the crowd is likely to be especially frenzied as midget wrestling, long a Bill Valentine staple, makes its first appearance at Dickey-Stephens. Li'l Kato takes on his brother Beautiful Bobby Dean at 6:45 p.m. for the World's Midget Heavy Weight Wrestling Championship. Belvis the Black Elvis will be entertaining the crowd, too. The game starts at 7:45 p.m. On Saturday, the first 2,000 fans get a Travs fleece blanket, 7:10 p.m. And on Sunday, for the 2 p.m. day game, the first 2,000 get a Travs team picture.
