|Sonic Drive-In Brings Back Strikeout Socks|
After a two year hiatus the AppleSox strikeout socks are back by popular demand thanks to the new “Ten Strikeouts for a Sonic Slushy” promotion sponsored by Sonic Drive-In. Fans may remember the strikeout socks promotion that was put on hiatus after the 2008 season.
“Our fans asked about the socks the last two years,” said general manager Jim Corcoran. “Like hot dogs, bleachers and scoreboards, a clothes line with big socks hanging from it is just another important part of our baseball experience in Wenatchee”.
Every time an AppleSox pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, an AppleSox sock is hung on a clothes line between the press box and the backstop. If the AppleSox pitching staff combines to strike out ten batters in a home game, every fan in attendance will receive a coupon for a free Sonic slushy or cherry limeade.
