The Sugar Land Skeeters and Sugar Land Heritage Foundation (SLHF) are pleased to announce the August 9th game with the Long Island Ducks will be a “Turn Back the Clock Night”. The SLHF has been researching old pictures in effort to help the Skeeters in designing uniforms for the game. Jerseys will have a look of the earlier eras of baseball. Old pictures and other items reminiscent from past will be a part of the evening. Also, there will be a pregame Vintage Baseball Game at 5PM featuring the Houston Babies.
There will be a silent auction of the jerseys worn by the players that night with proceeds going to support SLHF programs. More details on the auction will be at the game that evening. This is a great chance to get a one of kind jersey. Successful bidders will be able to get their pictures taken with the respective player, as well as getting the players to autograph the jerseys of the winning bidder.
This is a regular season game, so your season tickets are good for the game. Additional tickets are available for the game via the Skeeters’ website:
Dennis Parmer, SLHF Executive Director, said, “This is going to be a lot of fun, it will be a great night of baseball with an old timey theme. SLHF would like to thank the Fluor Corporation, First Southwest Company, and Bob & Carole Brown for their help in sponsoring this event.”
If you like history and baseball this night has both, including baseball history from right here in Sugar Land. The entire theme of the night will involve old school baseball; it is a night I have really been looking forward to, said Ira Liebman “Voice of the Sugar Land Skeeters.”
