The Fresno Grizzlies is the hippest team in minor league baseball.
This is a personal judgment, obviously. I don’t know about every minor league team. I do know the Grizzlies consistently put out creative, innovative events and marketing strategies. The team (they had some help from the Beehive) was on the leading edge of the Twitterverse with its Tweetup events. We all know how successful the Taco Truck Throwdown has become. There’s also the team’s off-season web video series, which follows the exploits of its mascot Parker.
It’s no shock that the team has been nominated for two MiLBY Awards this year. The Fresno Mini Maker Faire, which we attended and wrote about and loved, is up for best promo, while a kiss-cam video (shown here with commentary) is up for best blooper (some people must still think the thing is real, even though it was pretty assuredly faked).
The Grizzlies have done (and are doing) great things down at the stadium and deserve any and all praise for it. Show your support by logging on to vote for the team. Voting ends today, so do it now.
