The Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA; Southern League) will donate their team bus to charity, and choose a local non-profit organization through a social media giveaway. The Blue Wahoos have used the bus since their inaugural season in 2012 to bring players and staff members throughout the Pensacola community.
Local non-profits interested in entering their organization as a candidate to receive the bus should record a 30-second video explaining how they would use the bus and upload it to Facebook with the Blue Wahoos tagged (@bluewahoosbaseball). Organizations without video capabilities can submit a written letter explaining why they should be selected by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The team will accept submissions until Thursday, February 28.
The Blue Wahoos bus is a 1999 Champion Freightliner that was used both by the Blue Wahoos and their predecessor, the Pensacola Pelicans. Due to its age, some repairs are necessary.
