One of the greatest promotions in Minor League Baseball history took place on August 18th 2000 when the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings put speedy outfielder Jose Herrera in a race against famously winless race horse Zippy Chippy. A decade later Herrera revisits the famous night with Harrisburg PA’s CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol who is a must follow on twitter @JasonBristol. If you’ve never heard the story or seen the race, check out the video below. It’s awesome.
