In advance of their silver anniversary, the Sioux City Explorers (independent; American Association) have unveiled a commemorative 25th season logo. The logo will be featured on the right sleeve of the jerseys that will be worn during the 2017 season.
Along with the logo, the Explorers unveiled some other promotions relating to their 25th season.
“We are excited to celebrate 25 great seasons in Siouxland,” said Shane Tritz, Sioux City Explorers Vice President and General Manager. “Our fans will get to enjoy several fun promotions and planned giveaway nights throughout the year as we commemorate our Silver Anniversary season as a proud member of the Siouxland community.”
Fans will have their first opportunity to purchase 25th Anniversary season t-shirts and hats by visiting the X’s booth at the 2017 KKMA Outdoor Show, which will take place at the Sioux City Convention Center on January 28 and 29.
In February, the X’s will be inviting fans to vote on a Sioux City Explorers 25th Anniversary Team, featuring the best players who have donned a X’s uniform since the inaugural season in 1993. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for players on a position-by-position basis on the Explorers website (www.xsbaseball.com).
