New York-based comedy troupe Improv Everywhere recently spiced up a Little League game in Hermosa Beach, Calif. between local teams the Mudcats and the Lugnuts. IE filled the bleachers with rabid fans, trotted out MLB-style refreshment and program vendors, and even brought in NBC Sports to “cover” the event. Fans were thrilled to have the game buzzed by the Goodyear Blimp, and players signed autographs and took part in a post-game press conference.
On the Improv Everywhere blog, one parent remarked:
My son was a pitcher on the Lugnuts. We had a long/tough season last year. Saturday made up for everything. I want to sincerely thank you for making Saturday so unbelievable. It was like a birthday, Christmas, and New Years Eve captured in a few amazing hours. Thanks a million for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
