Man, do we remember the days of green slime — and so do the Brooklyn Cyclones (short season A; NY-Penn League), who are joining forces with Nickelodeon on a ‘90s Are All That Night promo, with Kel Mitchell (of Kenan & Kel) throwing out the first pitch.
Prior to the game, 100 fans will be given the opportunity to purchase a special Double Dare LIVE! ticket package. For just $25, each fan will receive a field box seat to the game, a Nickelodeon ‘90s-themed t-shirt, sunglasses, a headband and exclusive admission into the pretaping of Double Dare LIVE! at MCU Park. Select fans will be chosen at random to compete in the Double Dare games and activities — complete with their signature green slime, whipped cream and more — to be aired in-between innings during that night’s game.
In addition, all seats are just $10 — for a throwback ‘90s price. The first 3,000 fans to enter the ballpark will receive a ‘90s Are All That branded sweatband courtesy of TeenNick, Nickelodeon’s 24-hour TV network exclusively for and about teens and tweens. The evening will also feature appearances by Angelica Pickles, Tommy Pickles and Chuckie Finster from the Nickelodeon animated classic, Rugrats, who will be on hand for photo ops. Fans can also immortalize the night’s festivities at the ‘90s Are All That photo booth, complete with throwback props, including the Aggro Crag trophy from Nick’s hit game show Guts. Lastly, all 150 concession stand employees will be wearing Good Burger hats.
The Brooklyn Cyclones players will be wearing one-of-a-kind orange, Nickelodeon, Double Dare themed jerseys—complete with slime. The jerseys will be raffled off, on-field at the conclusion of the game. All proceeds will benefit the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA). Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
The fun doesn’t just stop there. Prizes will be given out throughout the night to lucky fans — including Fun Dip, slap bracelets, Nickelodeon memorabilia and more. Some in-between inning contests and concourse games will include, playing Pogs on the concourse, a Pokemon “Gotta Catch Em All” on-field contest and a Mario Kart push cart race on field.
