Complete with a Fruity Pebbles-inspired jersey, the Battle Creek Bombers (summer collegiate; Northwoods League) will celebrate Cereal Night on July 9.
The promotion is a nod to Battle Creek, which is known as Cereal City U.S.A. Highlighting Cereal Night is the Fruity Pebbles-inspired jersey, a colorful uniform top that is sure to catch the eye. The jersey is the result of a partnership between the Bombers and Post Foods.
In addition to an auction for the game-worn jerseys, the Bombers will also host a cereal bowl giveaway and feature live entertainment from The Amazing Christopher.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Post Cereals on this groundbreaking and eye-catching Fruity Pebbles jersey,” said Tony Iovieno, general manager of the Battle Creek Bombers. “Battle Creek truly is the cereal capital of the world and this is a fantastic way to celebrate our heritage along with a first-class community partner in Post Cereals. We cannot thank Post Cereals enough for believing and investing in this community, our franchise, and this unique idea.”
