Huntsville Baseball Team Cancels Gun Giveaway

Posted: Updated:
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -

An Alabama minor league baseball team has canceled a gun raffle that was supposed to be featured during its Second Amendment Night promotion.

Huntsville Stars spokeswoman Nicole Colonis said Monday that the raffle during the team's Wednesday night game against the Chattanooga Lookouts was canceled after Minor League Baseball officials said the promotion was likely not in the franchise's best interest.

Colonis says Second Amendment Night will still feature free admission for members of the National Rifle Association who present their membership card.

The Huntsville Stars are a Class-AA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers.
