Figgins batting average affects beer prices at local bar

Patrons at Norm's Eatery and Ale House in Seattle might be rooting for the Mariners, but they might be rooting against M's third baseman Chone Figgins.

That's because Figgins' batting average helps determine the price of beer.

Every Monday night, Norm's hosts "Gettin' Figgy With It," in which the price of a pint of draft Widmer beer is based on Figgins' floundering batting average. Last Monday, Figgins was hitting .202, which meant each pint of Widmer was $2.02.

Norm's has been known for their Monday night promotions based on Mariners struggles. They held a similar promotion a few years ago, in which beer prices were based on former Mariner Richie Sexson's batting average. Last year, they held a food and beer special called "Milton's Meltdowns," which were based on Milton Bradley's headlines on and off the field.
