PRESS RELEASE – When choosing the name of Pensacola’s new Double-A club in 2012, more than 3,200 votes were cast for six final choices. The Blue Wahoos won over the possibilities of the Aviators, Mullets, Redbones, Salty Dogs and Loggerheads.
On Thursday, May 26, fans will be able to see What If as Pensacola will play as the Mullets as part of our Throwback Thursday night presented by Seville Quarter at Mullets Stadium.
The team will wear special Pensacola Mullets jerseys featuring our primary Pensacola Mullets logo. These game worn jerseys will be auctioned off in the sixth inning with the proceeds benefiting Chain Reaction. Chain Reaction is a local Pensacola teen leadership institute with a character education program that uses volunteerism as a teaching tool.
The team will also sport a New Era 59FIFTY cap with the secondary Pensacola Mullets logo. These hats, along with Pensacola Mullets t-shirts, will be available to purchase at the Bait & Tackle Team Store. The t-shirts are available in three different designs and come in both adult and youth sizes.
Plenty of activities will be held on gameday to celebrate What If Night:
Mullet Measurement Contest: From 3:00-5:00 we will be measuring mullets (fish) in front of the stadium. The person with the longest mullet will receive four (4) tickets and a first pitch for the game.
Mullet Toss: There will be a mullet toss in front of the stadium from 4:30-5:30. The top three throwers will throw their final tosses during the game between innings.
Mullet Haircuts: Do you want business in the front and a party in the back? Stop by the concourse when gates open to get a mullet hair cut from Sports Clips!
Mullet Competition: Do you have the best mullet (hairstyle)? Be sure to check-in at Fan Assistance by the end of the second inning to enter our Mullet Competition.
Mullet Hall of Fame: Submit your favorite mullet hairstyles on Twitter and Instagram with #MulletsLife and you might see it in our Mullet Hall of Fame Thursday night.
Mulligget Basket: A Mullet nuggets basket will be served along with our tradition mullet basket in Port Side Grille.
