The Tampa Bay Rays AA affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits, have been whoring out a chunk of the organization’s farm system this season with a series of “Win a Date” promotions. Most recently, the Biscuits offered up third baseman Henry Wrigley’s gravy when the team had women register and compete on-field to win an evening with the 24-year old slugger last Thursday night against Chattanooga. And while the Biscuits lost that game 3-2, some lucky lady took home a hunky prize. I assume she took him home because minor league ballplayers will sleep with anything.
The Wrigley date was the second such pimping that the team had announced in recent months, as the Biscuits hosted a speed dating night on May 27. During that promotion, female fans were able to sign up for four minute “dates” with the entire Biscuits roster, which is pretty cool because that means they got to do it at least twice. Right? That’s average, from what I’ve been told.

As for Ol’ Hank, it seems that maybe slinging splatter hasn’t been good for the batter. Wrigley is 0-for-15 since his team violated his innocence, and he’s hitting just .075 over the past 10 games. Meanwhile, Joe Maddon sent him a homemade Imogen Heap box set and a new 10-speed bike along with a note that read: “Chillax, broseph! Light some candles and wax poetic with some vinyl records. Maybe take a wine tour and read some Bronte. Doesn’t matter which one, they’re both totally rocking my striped socks right now.”
