       A professional baseball team in Kentucky is using the Manti Te'o hoax has an opportunity to bring fans to their games.

      The Florence Freedom of the Independent League (Boone County), says they're going to hold an 'imaginary friend' night for their May 23rd game.

      The organization says the first one-thousand fans to attend the game will get free 'Manti Te'o girlfriend' bobble head dolls.

     The box the bobble head comes in will be empty.

     The organization says they'll also reserve a section of the stadium for fans to sit with their 'imaginary friends and spouses.'

     An air guitar contest and imaginary food fight will also take place during the game, along with mock 'kiss cam.'

     The Lexington Legends organization says they liked the idea and says they were waiting for a minor league to come up with such an idea.

    They say the whole point of such promotions is to 'push the envelope' to gain media attention and and fans to games.
