ROCKFORD FORESTERS ANNOUNCE SENATORIST NIGHT
Wisconsin Senators who were once tourists in Rockford are invited back on Saturday, July 16
ROCKFORD, IL – March 16, 2011 – The Rockford Foresters Baseball Team, a summer collegiate wood bat team in Rockford, announced this morning “Senatorist Night” where once missing Wisconsin State Senators are invited back to Rockford to once again be tourists on Saturday, July 16 at 6pm at historic Marinelli Field.
As part of Senatorist Night all 14 Wisconsin State Senators, who were once missing, will be invited to each throw out the first pitch at the Rockford Foresters baseball game.
Also part of the festivities, all fans with the first names of the missing Senators (see names below) will get in the game for free.
All union members (teachers, contractors, etc) will also get into the game for free if they present their union card.
Fans who first or last name is Walker, will be asked to pay their “fair share” of the Senator’s ticket prices, which is $86 ($6 average ticket price multiplied by 14 tickets).
“Hosting Senatorist Night on July 16 is a humorous way to invite the once missing Wisconsin State Senators back to Rockford, where most found themselves curious tourists in Rockford visiting such places as the Clock Tower Resort,” said Majority Owner/President Joe Stefani.
An open letter was sent this morning to all once missing Wisconsin State Senators to their offices throughout Wisconsin.
First Names of Missing Wisconsin State Senators:
- Robert (2 named Robert)
