FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - The Fort Myers Miracle of the Florida State League are having a "Rest the Vest" Night on Monday, giving Ohio State fans a place to unload their sweater vests in the wake of Jim Tressel's resignation.
Known for wearing sweater vests, Tressel was forced to step down as football coach Monday after it was revealed his players traded autographed memorabilia and championship rings for cash and discounted tattoos. The NCAA also is looking into car deals involving Ohio State athletes.
The Miracle are encouraging fans to place their sweater vests in a "retirement bin" for a chance to test drive a sports car.
Those showing a tattoo before the game against the Jupiter Hammerheads will receive "a piece of Miracle memorabilia to keep or sell."
