A baseball team in Portland, Oregon has a rather peculiar promotion planned for this weekend: 'D.B. Cooper Night.' The unique event comes by way of the delightfully-named collegiate summer baseball team the Portland Pickles and will be held this coming Sunday in conjunction with a game against the Victoria HarbourCats. As for what the evening will entail, the team says that they are "asking all fans to come forward with all information related" to the infamous skyjacking case.
After collecting these insights from attendees, the Pickles boldly promise that they will "put together all the clues throughout the evening and finally solve the only unsolved case of air piracy in commercial aviation history." While we have our doubts that the team will be able to best the FBI when it comes to unraveling the notorious caper, the clever event is something of a testament to how D.B. Cooper has seemingly transformed into a modern-day folk hero akin to famous outlaws like Billy the Kid.
