PRESS RELEASE – Jackals fans, prepare to jump to lightspeed! On Sunday, August 2nd the New Jersey Jackals will host their first ever “Star Wars™ Day” as they take on the Galactic Empire to the north, otherwise known as the Rockland Boulders.
As fans enter the gates of Yogi Berra Stadium, they will enjoy appearances by fully costumed Star Wars™ characters. All throughout the main concourse, these characters will engage with & take photos with our fans.
The Jackals players and coaches will take the field wearing commemorative Stormtrooper-themed jerseys, to be held at silent auction throughout the game until the middle of the 7th inning. All proceeds from the jersey auction will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Clifton.
Fans are encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite Star Wars™ characters to add to the overall atmosphere of this special event. Any props resembling weapons or firearms or any kind will not be permitted.
There are plenty more surprises in store for our first ever “Star Wars™ Day”, so stay tuned to our website, as well as our Facebook (New Jersey Jackals), Twitter (@JackalsBaseball) & Instagram (@JackalsBaseball) for updates and more information!
As Darth Vader once said “We would be honored if you would join us.”
Don’t forget, since this will be a Family Funday Sunday, children can run the bases and play catch on the field after the game. Players will also be located on the main concourse post-game to sign autographs for fans!
