Baseball team making Alvin Greene figures

A minor league baseball team in South Carolina is making a reality out of U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene's idea to spur economic growth by creating action figures of himself.
The Charleston RiverDogs planned to give out statues Saturday of a male Statue of Liberty. That was based on a Georgia group's plan to build a mate for New York's Lady Liberty on the South Carolina coast.
But after hearing Greene's idea, the team decided to add a picture of the candidate's face on the figures.
The Democratic candidate says he likes the idea and hopes it looks good.
The RiverDogs are a class A affiliate of the New York Yankees known for wacky promotions. The team set a record for having no fans on Nobody Night. They tried Vasectomy Night 13 years ago, but canceled it when some fans complained.
