Pelicans, Odor to give fans a whiff of baseball’s aromas

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans were rained out Monday night, forcing a doubleheader with the Winston-Salem Dash on Tuesday. But that is just the warm-up act for the madness the minor-league team has lined up for Wednesday.

One of the best parts of going to a baseball game is enjoying the sweet smells of a baseball stadium – funnel cakes, hot dogs, fresh cut grass and the smell of a filthy, sweaty uniform at the conclusion of a three-hour baseball game.

On Wednesday, fans will have a chance to win an autographed, game-worn Rougned Odor jersey as well as an autographed Rougned Odor scratch-and-sniff baseball card as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans celebrate “The Smells of Baseball.”

During the game the Pelicans will be celebrating some of the greatest odors baseball has to offer – everything from the sweet aroma of stale beer to a wet bullpen baseball. Ten smelling stations will be set up around the park and fans will have an opportunity to guess the mystery aromas.

Fans who correctly name at least 8 of 10 aromas will receive a Pelicans baseball card set that might include an autographed Rougned Odor scratch-and-sniff baseball card. Those who get all 10 correct will be entered into a contest to win Odor’s game-worn uniform.  The team sets are limited to the first 200 winners, but every fan in attendance wins as the team will provide a complimentary Kleenex tissue to each guest in attendance.

“In addition to being one of the most talented young talents in the game, Rougned Odor (pronounced O-dure) has one of the most unique names in all of baseball,” said Andy Milovich, the Pelicans Vice President and General Manager. “We thought his last name, “Odor,” provided the perfect opportunity for a scratch-and-sniff baseball card.   It’s also a great opportunity to celebrate some of the best baseball aromas – like pine tar and sunflower seeds.”

This great night would not be possible without the nose, so we will be celebrating some of the great noses around. Fans will have a chance to identify some of best noses in baseball. Voting will take place to find the most nasally actor and actresses. All the while fans will be put in the mood with some of the best songs about noses, including Gene Autry’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and video clips featuring Pepe LePew, Dudley “Booger” Dawson from Revenge of the Nerds, Pinnochio and many others.

The 2013 Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball card sets are also available in the Pelicans Merchandise Store at TicketReturn.com Field. The decks sell for $12 with Odor scratch-and-sniff bubble gum cards randomly inserted into many of the decks.
