A minor league baseball team are encouraging fans to bring their Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus music and merchandise – only for the club to blow it up on the field.

Charleston RiverDogs – a Class A affiliate team to the New York Yankees – are promoting their event to destroy all Bieber and Cyrus-related items after their game against the Augusta GreenJackets this Saturday.

According to reports on cbssports.com, all fans who bring Cyrus or Bieber items will be allowed to the game at a reduced $1 per ticket and the promotion is hoped to attract more fans to the minor leagues and to the RiverDogs home ground Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park.

Hate 

The RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols said in a press release: “Like so many, we have taken special exception to Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus’s music along with their numerous run-ins with the law and her controversial performances.”

The destruction was inspired by the Disco Demolition 35 years ago. The event became infamous for ruining the Chicago White Sox’s playing field at Comiskey Park after they blew up disco records.

The damage was so bad that the White Sox had to forfeit their second game in a double-header against the Detroit Tigers on July 12 1979.

Good fun

Echols added: “’Disco Demolition 2’ is dedicated to the eradication of their dread musical disease, like the original Disco Demolition attempted to do. We are going to take Bieber and Cyrus’s merchandise and memorabilia, put it in a giant box, and blow it to smithereens.”

The promotion is hoped to be light-hearted after the game against the GreenJackets concludes - who are an affiliated club to the San Francisco Giants - and not as destructive as the original demolition in Chicago.

“It is all in good fun, and we guarantee there won’t be a forfeit of a game,” explained Echols.
