T-Bones to hold Vick promotion

April 18, 2008


— The Kansas City T-Bones of the Northern League will hold Michael Vick "Welcome to the Neighborhood" night on May 28 in an effort to raise awareness about animal abuse and pet adoption.

Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback, is serving a 23-month sentence at the U.S. Penitentiary in Leavenworth after pleading guilty to federal charges related to dogfighting.

The event will include the typical zaniness that goes with a minor-league baseball promotion, including spotlights, escape sirens and "Who Let the Dogs Out" blaring from stadium speakers. The T-Bones' game jerseys will be designed with old black-and-white prison stripes.
