Minor league baseball added to its reputation for creative promotions Sunday as the Brooklyn Cyclones offered a pre-game Lamaze class in center field. It was part of a salute to pregnancy that the team called "Bellies and Baseball."

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Minor league baseball added to its reputation for creative promotions. Before last night's game the Brooklyn Cyclones offered a Lamaze class in center field, part of a salute to pregnancy that the team called Bellies and Baseball. Expectant mothers were invited to run or walk the bases before the game. And they sang on the field during a ritual that seemed to take on a whole new meaning - the Seventh Inning Stretch.

It's MORNING EDITION.
