Will Smith must have been booked. Alfonso Ribeiro, a.k.a. Carlton Banks of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" fame, is appearing at the Diamond tomorrow to mark the Richmond Flying Squirrel’s “Peanut Tribute Night,” which, naturally, is presented by the Virginia Association of Peanut Farmers.

It gets better: For $25 fans can meet Riberio before the game and enjoy an all you can eat buffet. It also happens to be the night the Squirrels sell $2 beers. Lucky.

In the realm of Minor League Baseball promotions, this is nearly as brilliant as the Pennsylvania team that's offering a free funeral giveaway tonight for its "Celebration of Life" night.
