I can’t believe that Major League Baseball hasn’t thought to do this yet:

VIERA, Fla. — In lieu of recent events regarding the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill of the Gulf Coast of the United States, the Brevard County Manatees have announced that the club will be officially changing the name of “batting practice” or “BP” for short to “hitting rehearsal”.

“As an organization we feel that changing the term ‘batting practice’ and ‘BP’ to ‘hitting rehearsal’ shows that we are deeply concerned and hurt by the disaster on the Gulf Coast,” Manatees General Manager Kyle Smith said.

I’ll give them credit for finding a way to get their team some national exposure, but “hitting rehearsal”? Do they plan on drafting Tommy Tune?
