Scrappers scrap Traficant Release Night promotion



Published: Wed, August 12, 2009 @ 1:00 p.m.

NILES — The Mahoning Valley Scrappers are scrapping its “Traficant Release Night” promotion.

The team will make an official statement Thursday. But Dave Smith, the Class A short-season minor league baseball team’s general manager, confirmed today that the event is canceled.

The event was scheduled for Sept. 2, the day ex-U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. is to be released from federal prison after serving seven years for racketeering, bribery, obstruction of justice and tax evasion.

After the event was included in a Sunday article in The Vindicator, the Scrappers were “flooded with e-mails and phone calls” objecting to the promotion, Smith said.
