This final game of the season for the Mallards tonight also marks their last promotion, Quench Gum Fan Appreciation Night, through which the team promises "great giveaways all night long." One of the most memorable promotional stunts of the season took place only last Monday, August 6, when the team played host to the first World Frogleg Eating Championship on the infield after the defeat of the Green Bay Bullfrogs. Of the ten contestants, including three professional eaters, it was a Madisonian who took home the honors last week. The "Mad City Masticator" Matt Allen ate one pound and ten-point-eight ounces of frog legs to win the championship, defeating his closest competitor by just over two ounces.
This festival of gluttony was shot on video and published online, capturing every moment of the five-minute competition from the stands behind home base. This video clip follows below.
