Here's Your Chance To See Barry Simmons Live And In Person

DelinO already broke the news that Matt Kemp is spending his off-day today doing some appearances. But here's the oddly-worded press release on his tour:


Appearances Part of Bank’s National Program to Say Thank You to Customers Through its Major League Baseball® Sponsorships

To thank customers for their business in unexpected ways, Bank of America has invited Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp to surprise customers at select banking centers around the city on May 26. During his unannounced visits, Kemp will give away tickets to upcoming Dodgers games along with other baseball-themed items. His appearances are part of a larger, national program that uses Bank of America’s sponsorship of Major League Baseball to demonstrate its gratitude to customers who also share bank’s passion for America’s National Pastime.

As the Official Bank of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Major League Baseball, Bank of America has engaged with fans by bringing some of the most exciting and celebrated players in the game today into select banking centers across the country. In addition to Kemp’s appearance in Los Angeles, New York Yankee Nick Swisher, Boston Red Sox Clay Buchholz, Chicago Cub Ryan Dempster and San Francisco Giant Buster Posey made surprise visits at banking centers in their teams’ towns earlier this season.

Kemp, the Dodgers’ starting center fielder, is one of the team’s most popular players. Now in his sixth season with the team, Kemp won the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards in 2009 and finished tenth in the voting for the National League Most Valuable Player award that season. He led the team in home runs, runs and RBI last season.
