Somebody Please Stop Jim Terry. Soon.

You might think this (CURRENTLY ON SALE!) T-shirt would be the work of a prankster on CafePress, the type of guy who does stupid knockoff T-shirts any one's whim.

But it's not. It's in fact, the featured item on the Mahoning Valley Hitmen homepage, which is pretty much final official proof that "commissioner" Jim Terry is an opportunistic windbag who will do anything to make people believe his pretend league is real. Honestly, if you buy "tickets" to these "games," you deserve to lose your money. It's just Darwinism, really.


Meanwhile, Terry was advertising open tryouts for the team at a high school field in Warren, Ohio. Problem is, nobody at JFK High School gave him permission, and when the female principal came out to kick him off the field, "it got ugly," she says. "It was not a pleasant conversation."

The site now says tryouts are still on ... though with no date or location. Might we suggest jail?
