The theme of this coming Thirsty Thursday is “You Might Be the Father’s Day,” and the team will be distributing pregnancy tests to fans so that, according to the promotion, “you'll know if you need to return for Sunday's Father's Day game.” The promotion goes on to promise, “It will be an evening filled with suspense, intrigue and manila envelopes.” Entrepreneur spoke with Harold Craw, general manager for the Jumbo Shrimp, about this -- yeah, we’ll say it -- genius idea. On the field, we’re having a rough first half of the season. Where did this idea come from? In our meetings, there’s no such thing as a bad idea. It’s freeform and we encourage everyone to take part.

How are the Jumbo Shrimp doing?

On the field, we’re having a rough first half of the season. We were eliminated from playoff contention for the first half of the season, but the second half starts anew soon. But off the field, we’ve been great. Attendance is up compared to last year and we’ve seen a lot of new fans come through the gates in the first 30 games of this season.
