Benny the Bull Visits for First Mascot Monday

PRESS RELEASE –  The Joliet Slammers are proud to present Benny the Bull as their guest for the first Mascot Monday of 2011 on June 13 against the Washington Wild Things.

“We can’t think of a better way to kick-off Mascot Mondays than having the incomparable Benny the Bull at our ballpark,” Slammers Director of Marketing Sarah H. Eichenberger said. “We’re all looking forward to what crazy skits he’ll bring to Silver Cross Field on Monday.

Known for his dancing and acrobatic moves, Benny the Bull has long been a favorite among Chicago sports fans. He was the first NBA mascot as Benny has been entertaining Bulls fans since the late 1960’s.

Fans can expect lots of surprises from Benny and the Slammers’ own Spikes throughout the game as you never know what tricks they have up their sleeves.

In addition, the first 1000 fans through the gate will get a growth chart featuring former major leaguer and current Slammer Billy Petrick. Gates open at 6:05 p.m. CST and the first pitch is at 7:05 p.m.
