Power Plant Live! announced yesterday they will give away 1,000 orange crushes on the Friday after Orioles first baseman Chris “Crush” Davis breaks his streak of hitless games–1,500 if his first base knock is a homer.
Lee’s Pint & Shell today threw down the gauntlet.
The Canton seafood restaurant will offer free Natty Bohs and orange crushes for two hours immediately after the slugger gets off the 0-for-49 schneid.
“Lee’s Pint & Shell is hoping that Chris Davis gets a hit and they’re willing to put their money where their mouth is!!” the restaurant posted on Facebook.
As the eatery made clear in a follow-up video, participants have to be in the restaurant at the start of the game and request a wrist band. Anyone with a band gets the free hooch.
Here’s the thing, though: Davis is not in tonight’s lineup.

Barring a successful pinch-hitting appearance, the offer will extend until Davis successfully hits one where they ain’t. An employee who answered the phone at the restaurant said they are planning to open early for tomorrow’s 12:35 p.m. game against the Oakland Athletics should Davis remain on the bench tonight.
So come on, Chris! The weather is beautiful and we could all use a nice drink in the spring.
