The Angels’ Class-A affiliate Orem Owlz have a number of predictable/traditional promotional dates on their 2015 Pioneer League schedule, amongst them, Bark In The Park Night, Shark Week, Cosplay/LARPing Night and the ever popular Loot The Stadium Night. Sadly, one date on said calendar that might be diplomatically called ill-advised given recent events in the land of the
stupid free is August 10’s Caucasian Heritage Night. On the off chance there’s a Quiet Company post-game concert, maybe I could believe this is some high concept satire, but as Jay Jaffe notes, “every night is already white heritage night in Orem, Utah. Groups celebrating whiteness don’t exactly have a healthy track record.”
If this does turn out to be a gag on the Owlz’ part, might I remind them the Jersey City Snakes already put this kinda thing to bed a few years ago?
