So during last night's American League Championship Series game between the Indians and the Boston Red Sox, the first game back at Jacobs Field since Midgegate, United Industries, the maker of Cutter insect repellent products, had someone outside the stadium dressed as a bee handing out bug repellent wipes. "We’re keeping the midges on the mound," said Stephanie Strawbridge, the bee outside the stadium. "That’s our secret weapon."
During the seventh inning of last night's game Fox, who was broadcasting the game, showed footage of Strawbridge handing out the wipes and then had one of its on-field correspondents hold up one of the packets and talk about what it was. TVWeek recently reported that Fox was asking $200,000 per spot for those games.
As a side note the Indians did win the game taking a two games to one lead in the series. And there were no midges in sight.
