Yale Football Day at Norwich's Dodd Stadium

Here's a release from the San Francisco Giants Class AA team, which is promoting Yale football.

Their GM, Charlie Dowd, was GM for the Ravens in New Haven.

(Norwich, Conn) - On Wednesday, August 29, the Connecticut Defenders will host Yale
Football Day at Dodd Stadium. The first 2,000 fans will receive a ticket to a 2007 Yale
football home game. Kids who wear any football shirt will receive free admission as the
Defenders host the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at 7:05 p.m.
