MACON, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia minor league team is hoping to turn Eliot Spitzer's scandal into a packed stadium.

The Macon Music is capitalizing on the outgoing New York governor's prostitution-related downfall, by serving up a "Eliot Spitzer Night."

The man once known as "Mr. Clean" is invited to throw out the first pitch at the June 13 game, although he hasn't RSVP'd.

A South Coast League official said anybody named Eliot, Spitzer or Kristen, the alleged call girl, will get $1 off admission.

The team also plans to give out a one-night stay at Washington, D.C.'s swanky Mayflower hotel, where Spitzer's alleged misdeeds are said to have happened.

And since Spitzer was described as "Client No. 9" in FBI documents, the ninth fan will get a prize. So will the 871st fan to buy a ticket, because that's supposed to have been Spitzer's Mayflower Hotel room number.
