The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (High A; Carolina League) have unveiled a new alternate Palmetto State logo, along with the weekly promotion Palmetto State Saturdays.
On all Saturday games for the remainder of the 2019 campaign, with the exclusion of June 15, the Pelicans will sport specialty themed Palmetto State jerseys and hats. The design features a Pelicans spin on the South Carolina state flag emblem. Additionally, Palmetto State Saturdays, previously known as Locals Appreciation Saturdays, will now expand to allow all residents of the state of South Carolina to receive $3 off their game ticket when they show their South Carolina ID at the Anderson Brothers Bank Box Office.
“We are proud to represent this great state by wearing the brand-new Palmetto State Pelicans uniform every Saturday night,” stated Pelicans General Manager Ryan Moore. “Myrtle Beach is a home away from home for so many across South Carolina. To show our appreciation for all Palmetto State residents, we are excited to not only launch this new collection but also to expand our locals appreciation ticket offer to include everyone who calls South Carolina home.”
When planning a trip to Myrtle Beach, Pelicans fans from across the state are encouraged to go online to visitmyrtlebeach.com for great hotel options. Palmetto State Saturdays are presented by Food Lion, HTC, Sparks Toyota, WMBF, The Sun News and 106.5 NASH FM.
