Braves Hall of Famer David Justice has no idea why the Johnson City Cardinals included him in a promotion that he's apparently not a part of.

The J.C. Cardinals, the rookie league affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, tagged Justice as part of a promotion for designated drivers Wednesday.

A couple hours later, a confused Justice responded.

When clicking on the link for the website, the home page asks you to take a pledge for the opportunity at a VIP experience in Cooperstown with legendary reliever, Goose Gossage. On the next slide, the site says you can earn a shot to meet David Justice by pledging.

When clicking on the picture with Justice, the form to make your pledge then says, "make the pledge to be a designated driver and you will be entered to win a night with Baseball Legend Dale Murphy."

Murphy and Justice played together for two seasons in Atlanta – 1989 and 1990 – before Murphy was traded to the Phillies.
