In a unique step, the Sugar Land Skeeters (independent; Atlantic League) have unveiled a specialty uniform that will be worn by the team during the postseason.
The Skeeters, winners of the 2018 Atlantic League Championship, clinched a 2019 postseason berth after winning the First-Half Freedom Division Championship. They’ll be hosting Games 1 and 2 of the Freedom Division Championship Series on Sept. 24 and 25 at Constellation Field.
T-shirts modeled after the Skeeters special-edition “Come and Take It” uniforms will be available for purchase at the Buzzz Stop at Constellation Field or by visiting sugarlandskeeters.com/shop.
The Skeeters chose the “Come and Take It” theme as a tribute to the 1835 Battle of Gonzales, which was the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution. As part of the “Come and Take It” theme, the Skeeters will have a replica cannon on site that will be shot off before each game, as well as Battle of Gonzales reenactors available for photos and meet-and-greets throughout the game.
There will be several ticketing and promotional specials based off significant dates from the Battle of Gonzales. Each playoff game at Constellation Field will begin at 6:35 p.m. as a tribute to the year 1835 when the Battle of Gonzales occurred. Fans can also purchase all-you-can-eat tickets for the HEB Picnic Plaza for $18.35.
If the Skeeters advance to the Atlantic League Championship Series, they would host Game 3, along with Games 4 and 5, if necessary, which would occur from Oct. 4-6. Packages that include tickets for all potential playoff games are available for purchase at sugarlandskeeters.com/playoffs.
