Baseball Team Trolls Brian Williams with ‘Pants-on-Fire Night’

Minor-league baseball team The Akron RubberDucks is engaging in some next-level trolling with its announced “Brian Williams‘ Pants-on-Fire Night”:

The event is being held on April 27th (National Tell a Story Day), and general manager Jim Pfander explained, “We thought this would be a fun, tongue-in-cheek night for our fans.”

And as for the list of activities… well, just look (emphasis theirs):

  • First 100 fans will receive a pair of suspenders upon entering Canal Park
  • On-field contests, including “To Tell the Truth” and “Two Truths & a Brian Williams,” also known as “Two Truths and a Lie”
  • In honor of National Tell a Story Day, a fan named Brian Williams will read tall tales
  • A between-inning chance for fans to audition to be the next television news anchor on the video board, with the fan-voted winner’s video sent to NBC
  • A pair of pants from Brian Williams will be burned in a “pants on fire” ceremony
  • Any fan in attendance named Brian Williams will have a chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch
