Carlton Banks Throws Out First Pitch On Fresh Prince Night
It’s nothing new for minor league teams to come up with creative ways to promote the team and get fans in the stands, but this may be the best one I’ve seen.
Actor Alfonso Ribeiro, better known to most of us as Carlton Banks from the hit show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, was on hand at the State College Spikes, Class-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals game to celebrate their Fresh Prince Night.

The players wore airbrushed jerseys inspired by the show, and Ribeiro even did his signature dance for the fans.
