It was Military Appreciation Night last night in Mequon, Wisconsin where the home team Lakeshore Chinooks faced the Lacrosse Loggers in a collegiate summer league game. How do you get people into the seats to watch college all-star teams play baseball in July? You bring in Sgt. Slaughter and let him perform – between innings. Here he is during the 2nd inning putting some punk in a sleeper.
Sure, this is exactly when Slaughter looks in the mirror and figures his career is nearly over. Is there anything lower than being a circus act at a college summer baseball game? Not really.

Premise of Video: From the Chinooks intern PR team: Fans will also have the opportunity to meet wrestling legend, Sgt. Slaughter. Sgt. Slaughter will have a meet and greet on the concourse before and during the game where fans can get autographs and pictures with the former pro wrestling star.
Climax of Video: Again, this is between innings as a college baseball player is trying to warm up on the mound.
Conclusion: There are like 500 fans in the stands. How much exactly could they have paid Slaughter? $500? $750 and a gas card?
