Very good idea, and im doing it as well! Dont get to put a catchy line on it, but the company name is on it, as well as a banner on the fence!

Always a lesson, never a failure.

We've done this for years, and still do it just to be a good member of the community. Do not expect a single account from it though. As I said we've done it for years, banners on the fences, uniforms etc. not the first call related to any sponorship

Good idea for advertising.

Yup, that's what I'm looking to do, Just get the name out a little more.

We did that last year. They used grass-green shirts and I know that I got three new customers from people seeing the team. I'm definitely doing it again!

Hey blue, that was an awful call!!!
Your close, your close. What the players remembered was how I was able to project my voice, i.e. make it heard all over the field. A trick I learned calling cadence for young trainees when I was in the Army - back when they were issued flintlocks.
Actually I was known for being a fair umpire - and that my black Lab would lie down directly behind the home plate fence and watch me while I was on the field. She sure barks loud when someone tried to "help" themselves to a beer out of my cooler.
Nice Try = You Suck Spelled Differently
