My favorite experience at minor league baseball

I saw a Class A game played by the Salinas Spurs who hosted the Bakersfield Dodgers. It was on a cold Tuesday night and the attendance was under 600. The Spurs were an independent team at that point. The Bakersfield Dodgers pitcher walked a batter on four pitches, then threw three balls to the next guy. The pitching coach came out to talk with him.

The PA system played the Final Jeopardy theme music and someone shouted out “What is a strike? The pitcher clearly didn’t know. I’m sure he heard it since there were so few people there and little crowd noise.
