    Augusta — On Friday, Aug. 19, prior to their game against the Aberdeen IronBirds, the New Jersey Cardinals held a special ceremony in which they presented two checks of $100 each to two local charities. Birth Haven, a home for pregnant women in need, and Norwescap Food Bank of Philipsburg, were the recipients of the fine, that is, donations. The checks were the result of a fine for slow moving cattle, imposed by the NY-Penn League president, Ben Hayes. The fine levied was $100 worth of milk. The Cardinals selected two charitable organizations and decided to present each organization with a $100 check. The "Rally Cow" promotion (which consists of bringing a live cow onto the field) has been a mainstay of New Jersey Cardinals home games for two seasons. The cow was delayed in getting off of the field for two straight nights.
