Fans Have Opportunity to Manage Team

June 19th 2006

Did you hear about the Schaumburg Flyers, an independent baseball team near Chicago, agreeing to allow fans to manage and make team decisions during the second half of the season?

The promotion is very similar to Bill Veeck’s Grandstand Managers’ Day promotion he implemented in 1951.

Since Veeck’s innovative promotion, many high school and college sports teams have allowed fans to “make the call” at various sporting events, but I haven’t heard of fans managing a team.

You can check out the Flyers “Fan Club: Reality Baseball” promotion here.
