Big League Stew - MLB

Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! The Memphis Redbirds, the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, are holding an "Organ Donor Night" at AutoZone Park on Aug. 13 and these are the jerseys that they are planning to wear:

Must-see: Memphis Redbirds will wear ‘organ-themed’ uniforms

Man, it's too bad Bo Hart isn't in the Cards' system any more. The night is designed to get more people to sign the back of their driver's license and commit to being a future organ donor.

So, no, you can't exchange a kidney for free admission at the gate.

And, yes, this might cause you to rethink multiple visits between your liver and your favorite beer vendor.

From the team's press release:  

More than 111,000 people are waiting for organ transplants, and a new name is added to the waiting list every 11 minutes. Ninety percent of Americans say they support organ donation, but only 38 percent have actually registered as donors while only 26 percent of Shelby County residents have registered. In Tennessee there are 2,504 people currently waiting for transplants.

It's a worthwhile promotion, though as @kevin_reiss remarked, we can only consider the night a complete success if Slim Goodbody is invited to throw out the first pitch. Let's make this happen, Redbirds.
