What do we assume a ticket to a weekday afternoon game for the Okotoks Dawgs is running people these days? Five dollars and change, give or take given that loonie exchange rate? Whatever it is, I can guarantee that all 275 fans in attendance got their money's worth once that first seat cleared the dirt. I mean, there is very little else that can happen during a minor league baseball game that's as worth the price of admission as an adult temper tantrum that furnishes the first base line, so I'm glad these folks got in at the ground floor.
Granted, I can't speak to how well Mitch Schmidt (perfect name, btw) will manage his anger going forward, but that form is undoubtedly not of a man that just threw his first or last chair. The backwards overhead toss that maximizes both lower body strength and hang time is such a veteran move that it would make Bobby Knight blush. With what I can only imagine is a limited amount of entertainment options in Alberta, I think the mere possibility of a repeat performance is enough to make the Okotoks Dawgs the hottest ticket in province. Come one, come all, to see the best seat in the house get tossed in the general direction of an underpaid umpire!
