Kudos to the Sacramento River Cats for creativity. After seeing a number of minor league teams opting for the played out Star Wars and Ghost Busters jersey tropes, the Oakland Athletics Triple-A affiliate is raising the novelty jersey bar by wearing the players’ Twitter handles on the back of their jerseys.
As part of Social Media night, the River Cats will don these Twitter-themed jerseys for their August 13 game against the Colorado Springs. The team is also asking fans to Tweet, Instagram and Facebook pictures and videos of them going to ballpark which they will then repost on the scoreboard and their own social media platforms. After the game, the jerseys will be auctioned off for charity. Here’s to hoping that this becomes a trending topic.
