For minor league teams, one of their main objectives is to come up with interesting ways to bring fans to the games.
That's where promotional nights come in. Some are weird, but some celebrate what's recently happened in the world of sports. As such, the San Jose Giants want baseball fans to enjoy ... Mason Saunders Night.
This ain’t our first rodeo!— San Jose Giants (@SJGiants) February 25, 2020
Saddle up and join us Friday, June 5 as we celebrate #SJGiants alum, Madison Bumgarner, and his rodeo alias Mason Saunders...complete with a shirsey giveaway, roping promotions and special Turkey Mike’s BBQ menu items. ⚾️🐎https://t.co/XWE9DdgDt1 pic.twitter.com/rdXUXgatfL
Mason Saunders is, of course, former Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner's alter ego/alias he goes by when he's participating in rodeo events.
The Giants' Single-A affiliate will have a shirsey giveaway and encourage fans to dress up as their alias or alter egos.
MadBum was signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the offseason, but still remains a big part of Giants fans' hearts.

His former manager Bruce Bochy recently stopped by D-backs camp to see Bumgarner and it was the first time he had heard about this Mr. Saunders.
"Mason Saunders Night" will take place on Friday, June 5 at Excite Ballpark in San Jose where all aliases are welcome.
