Boston Red Sox invite fans to join them for Social Media Appreciation night

Maybe other professional sports teams have already done this, but thought the Boston Red Sox invitation to attend Tuesday's game this week for Social Media Appreciation night sounded pretty clever. Here's the pitch, as the team looks to attract fans and keep its "sellout streak" alive despite having a less than stellar start to the season:

Social Media Night

Tigers vs. Red Sox

Tuesday, May 29 - 7:10 p.m.
