Bellies & Baseball

From the lead story regarding Bellies & Baseball: A Salute to Pregnancy:
The Cyclones are expecting one of the most unique nights of the season on July 19th. Moms-to-be, in particular, are due to have lots of fun.
OK, I admit, a little cheesy...but Bellies & Baseball is just too much fun, and there are just so many word plays that you really have to labor through the temptation to overuse puns. (Sorry. I'm like an addict. I can't stop.)

In case you hadn't heard, Bellies & Baseball will feature unique and humorous pregnancy-themed entertainment, activities, and prizes. (It does not have anything to do with this.)

Among my personal favorite events of the night are:
  • Barefoot & Pregnant: Expectant moms can run (or, more likely, walk) the bases with no shoes on before the game
  • Craving Station: A table on the Concourse level will offer pickles, ice cream, anchovy pizza, etc. for pregnant women who crave more than the usual ballpark fare
  • Special Delivery: Any woman who gives birth at the ballpark before the end of the game gets free Cyclones Season Tickets for life for each member of her new family
And the best one of all...
  • 7th Inning Stretch Marks: Pregnant women will be allowed onto the field in the 7th inning to sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame
And really, that's just some of what's in store. You can read the entire official press release here.

So if you're pregnant -- or, ahem, working on it -- make your plans now to gather with others who are also knocked up carrying a bun in the oven sporting a baby bump in the same boat on July 19th for a night of labor-related laughs.
