By Sarah Trotto, Arizona Daily Star
The Tucson Toros, a minor league baseball team in Arizona, unveiled its roster for 2010 along with an unusual fan promotion: a free airplane. One fan will win a Cessna 150 plus flying lessons, the team announced at a news conference at Tucson International Airport. The airplane will go to the fan who makes the most accurate throw of a baseball on Sept. 4, 2010, at the last regular season game, according to team owner Jay Zucker. Additionally, every Fireworks Friday, one fan will be chosen to fly over Hi Corbett Field stadium to view the fireworks from aloft, according to a report in the Arizona Daily Star.
