Too Tall up next

TooTallCard.jpgAfter visits this week by Adam Sandler’s Lunch Lady on Tuesday and professional golfer Caroline Larsson on Wednesday, former Cowboys defensive end Ed “Too Tall” Jones will stop by the ballpark on Thursday.

Jones, a two-time All-Pro, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Thursday’s game.  All fans in attendance on Thursday will be able to register for a free raffle drawing to win a football autographed by Jones.
Jones is in town to participate in the Boxing Hall of Fame’s induction weekend and is being brought to Alliance Bank Stadium thanks to Champions 4 Champions and Spadora on Sports.  Too Tall took a year off from playing for the Cowboys to try his hands as a professional boxer in 1979.  He won all of his professional bouts, but went back to the football field the following year.

The Lunch Lady makes a surprise visit

Fans throughout the game answered Adam Sandler trivia questions to win passes to a special screening of “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan,” but the real fun came in the middle of the fifth inning when the Lunch Lady joined the customer service staff on the field for the Dunkin’ Donuts t-shirt toss.  The Lunch Lady didn’t throw t-shirt, of course, she threw sloppy joes to fans!
The Lunch Lady also rode the train on top of the dugout at the end of the 7th inning.
We hope you all enjoyed Adam Sandler Night.
