PRESS RELEASE – The BlueClaws will celebrate their 15th season of family fun at the Jersey Shore in style this summer, with a series of promotions, giveaways, and fan memories highlighting the early-docket that was released Wednesday.
Fans are encouraged to send in any photos, stories, and memories from their time at BlueClaws games since the team’s inception in 2001. These photos will be featured in the Catch of the Day game program, scrolled on the video board during games next year, and displayed on BlueClaws.com and in BlueClaws social media channels.
If fans do not have photos, they are still encouraged to share what the BlueClaws mean to them or their favorite memories and experiences at games. These stories will also be featured throughout the year.
HOW TO SUBMIT: The BlueClaws have created a special email address for fan submissions – email@example.com. If fans have printed photos, they can scan them and email the photos to that address or bring them to the stadium where the BlueClaws will scan them. All fans are encouraged to participate.
In addition, the BlueClaws have also unveiled four (4) promotional nights that will celebrate the team’s 15th season. The following games are the first four promotional nights released for the 2015 season:
15th Season Logo Golf Ball Giveaway on May 26th (first 1,500 fans)
15th Season Commemorative Team Card Set Giveaway on June 18th (first 1,500 fans)
Piedmont Boll Weevils Day on Saturday, July 11th (see below)
15th Season Mini Bat Giveaway on Monday, July 27th (first 1,500 fans)
On July 11th, the BlueClaws will become the Piedmont Boll Weevils for one day. Prior to coming to Lakewood with the BlueClaws in 2001, the Phillies South Atlantic League affiliate was based in Kannapolis, North Carolina as the Piedmont Boll Weevils from 1995-2000. The BlueClaws will become the Boll Weevils for one night, wearing special jerseys which will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting BlueClaws Charities. Additional details about this night will be announced at a later date.
Tickets for these games and all other BlueClaws home games are currently available through a BlueClaws ticket plan. These packages, which start at seven (7) games and range up to 70-game season tickets, include a wide array of benefits, value-pricing, and special gifts. With any additional questions on a BlueClaws ticket package, please call 732-901-7000 option 3 or visit BlueClaws.com.
Finally, the BlueClaws gameday home field cap will have a special patch recognizing the team’s 15th season. NewEra fitted hats with this patch will also be available in the Claws Cove at a later date, along with additional 15th season merchandise.
The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore’s top stop for affordable, family, entertainment. They have led the South Atlantic League and New Jersey in attendance in all 14 years of existence and in August, eclipsed the 6-million fan plateau.
