A Minor League Manager Got a Prostate Exam While Singing 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' Because That's Showbiz, Baby

I have some questions. As a matter of fact, I don't know that I've ever had more questions than I do right now.

Why? Whose idea was this? How many people heard this idea before it was put into action? Was this billed as a promotion to get people to the ballpark or was this sprung on an unsuspecting crowd?

I'm sure it was some sort of sponsored thing promoting men's health, which is great — a quick Google search has informed me that June is Men's Health Month, so at least this wasn't completely out of the blue. But that's gotta be a tough day for the manager of a Single-A baseball team when someone comes to you and says you're getting a prostate exam in the middle of the 7th inning next Thursday. That guy is trying to get to the big leagues just like the players are and nobody is pulling them off the field to sing while getting fingered.

The road to the Major Leagues and million-dollar contracts ain't all sunshine and rainbows, kids. You're going to take some lubed fingers up the pooper before you ever put on a big league uniform.
