Petco Park now has a Paul Bunyan-sized r11 driver

with one comment

Major League ballparks are plastered with advertisements. A couple of years ago, the Ballpark in Arlington renamed the place, for a couple of years, to Ameriquest Field, who had a giant replica Liberty Bell put out in left field — the company’s logo — to show ownership of the stadium.

It was a crazy idea that lasted for only a couple of seasons. While the bell was memorable, I’m pretty sure TaylorMade’s 80-foot tall club is going to make a bigger impression from a marketing standpoint. Just look at the thing! I guess if Paul Bunyan ever puts out an APB for a missing driver, you know where it ended up … attached to Petco’s foul pole.

Hey, with the way the Padres are swinging the bats this season, maybe they should consider using the driver in a real game. It looks like a can’t-miss stick to me.
