The Ogden Raptors, a single-A level club that is a farm team for the Los Angeles Dodgers, appears to have scrubbed their website of a controversial posting alerting fans to the August 11 promotion sometime early Tuesday after the Salt Lake Tribune covered the story Monday evening.

The Dodgers' rookie ball affiliate, the Ogden Raptors, is holding "Hourglass Appreciation Night" on August 11 later this season.

It was dubbed "Hourglass Appreciation Night", and it has been scrapped after the Utah baseball team behind the idea took on some enormous flack.

He said the release wasn't authorized by managers or owners and the team has taken steps to make sure it wouldn't happen again.

And here's a blow-by-blow transcript of how it went down starting with Heinrich questioning Acting FBI Director McCabe . Coats , who was preparing for his confirmation hearing, felt blindsided, officials said.

Baggott said the team would not be taking phone calls or giving interviews about the event.

Raptors have apparently had second thoughts about its "Hourglass Appreciation Night", a promotion that offended everyone but the knucklehead who conceived it.

Ogden Raptors managers says in a statement handed out to reporters Tuesday that the news release referencing women's bodies was sent without management approval and the event would not take place.

The release featured a cartoon image of three women in bikinis, referred to the women as "thoroughbreds" and said their "curves rival those of any stud pitching prospect".

The "hourglass" models were to be provided by Stars Talent Studio, a Salt Lake City-based agency that bills itself on its website as the "largest talent agency in the Intermountain West representing actors, models, voice talent, singers, bands, musicians, dancers, pro-athletes and more!"

There was no immediate comment from Dodgers officials.

Minor league baseball has hosted its share of amusing promotions, like the Brooklyn Cyclones' "Salute to Seinfeld Night" (complete with a second-spitter Roger McDowell bobblehead doll), and the Lowell Spinners' "50th Anniversary Salute to Bubble Wrap".
