Minor league baseball promotional nights are the weirdest and sometimes most glorious thing in all of North American sports. Sometimes they are amazing, like when a team of professional baseball players are forced to wear SpongeBob SquarePants or Geico hump day uniforms. Other times they can go terribly, terribly wrong, like when a team tries to roll with a “Caucasian Heritage Night” promotion.
The Albuquerque Isotopes know the right way to get fans in the building, as they will honor one of their state’s greatest television characters Saul Goodman (of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fame) this season with fantastic Saul Goodman-inspired uniforms.
Things may be beginning to unravel for Jimmy McGill in season two of Better Call Saul as he continues his descent from Slippin’ Jimmy to the corrupt, sleazeball lawyer who aided Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, but there’s no doubt that future Saul would love to see his face plastered all over the field if he could somehow sneak out of working the late shift at the Cinnabon to catch the game.
To make the whole thing even better, the actor behind Goodman, Bob Odenkirk, is a big enough minor league baseball fan that he once wrote a pilot script for FX revolving around a minor league team owner.
Huell and Kuby would be proud.
