For the third year in a row the Medicine Hat Mavericks baseball team is helping the Alberta Children’s Hospital and promoting our charity efforts by holding Superhero Night next Saturday, July 20.
We are honoured to be able to reveal this year’s special jerseys! After going with a comic book theme last year, this time it’s back to dressing the guys up as if they are the superheroes - which to many kids in the community, they certainly are.
In 2017 the jerseys featured a generic cape on the back. This time, you’ll recognize them as super-soldiers... the design is an homage to Captain America, with a star on the front and stripes. I love the fact they’ve kept the Mavs colours however, lots of red, grey and back.
Want one? They’ll be on sale after the third inning July 20, though you can certainly call the Mavs early (403-580-5811) to reserve one.
I won’t have as much to do with the game this year, as Mavs promotions director Janessa Robinson has stepped up in a big way with exciting ideas. There will be even more characters roaming Athletic Park this year, and fans are encouraged to dress up as superheroes themselves.
Game time July 20 is 7:05 p.m. Hope to see you there!
