Minor league baseball is traditionally known for wacky, off-the-wall, outrageous promotions and events. In the case of the Normal CornBelters, this still holds true. This season you can expect to see Reggy the Purple Party Dude (the who?), sumo wrestling, giant ears of corn running, and of course phenomenal baseball. At the same time, the team is going a little “old school” this season in terms of marketing and creatively inviting fans to the ballpark.

The 2012 season is the beginning of the “CornBelters Community Crew” which is often called the “Street Team” as well. This team is led by Denny Mohrman, long-time CornBelters fan and former usher. Denny oversees the team on a daily basis and takes the crew out to various community events to spread awareness of the CornBelters and upcoming games and events.

This past weekend, the Crew attended Heyworth HeyDays and Ride for the Cure at the Avanti’s Dome in Pekin. Be on the lookout for this crew because they will have special giveaways with them at all times! They most recently had vouchers to upcoming CornBelters games, so be sure to follow the team on Facebook ( and Twitter ( in order to get awesome prizes from the Crew!
