The Lakewood BlueClaws (Low A; Sally League) are taking pet night at the ballpark to another level, as they will sport cat jerseys this Saturday at FirstEnergy Park.
In the past, teams around the minors have worn limited edition dog jerseys, but this promotion is fairly unique. As part of CATurday, a salute to cats, the BlueClaws will wear limited edition jerseys (shown above). Jerseys will be auctioned off after the game–a limited number will be made available online at a later date–with proceeds benefiting BlueClaws Charities.
Fans are encouraged to bring their cats to the game (will need to sign a waiver and be in a case or on a leash and cats are admitted with a $2 Paw Pass). There will be songs, movie clips, promotions, memes, and more fun as well!
There will be a special guest appearance by Miss Kitty. The speciality drink “The Black Cat Cocktail” will be available in the Coors Light WRAT Trap. There will be a special rendition of Take MEOW Out to the Ballgame, and a special CATurday T-Shirt will be available in the Claws Cove.
SAVE Rescue Shelter of Toms River will be here as well. They will be collecting donations of products for a Cat supply drive and they will have cats here for adoption.
