First 10,000 fans in attendance to receive a piece of promotions director’s mind

After several of his recent promotional events and giveaways failed to pull in a big crowd, Cincinnati Reds promotions director Dale Patton says that the first 10,000 fans who come through the gates for tonight's game are going to get a piece of his mind. "Dammit! How can these people not come out for a Joey Votto bobblehead night?" Patton ranted. "Joey Votto is a star! A star! And Ladies Night? I don't think I saw any more ladies here than are here any other night? What the f—k, people?! And don't get me started on Hispanic Heritage Night. We had more Latinos on the field than in the stands." If Reds fans don't soon start showing more appreciation for his hard work, Patton says he is just going to quit and tell the team's management to use his salary to sign better players. "Let's see how they like watching a winning team without a free t-shirt. Then they'll be sorry."
