The winning hospital staff will receive a prize package from the BlueClaws including a "Field Day" outing at the ballpark.

The three BlueClaws staff members will participate with each representing one RWJBarnabas Health local hospital are as follows:

  • Jim McNamara represents Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.
  • Bob McLane represents Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood.
  • Rob McGillick represents Community Medical Center in Toms River.

The game will take place indoors using a children's hoop.

"While we don't have baseball games to play at this time, this game of CLAWS should be both fun for our fans to watch and, most importantly, benefit the true heroes of this pandemic and one of our premier BlueClaws Corporate Partners," said BlueClaws Team President Joe Ricciutti.

"We thank the BlueClaws for putting this game together and recognizing our doctors, nurses, and hospital staff putting their lives on the line each day," said Justin Edelman, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for RWJBarnabas Health. "This should be a fun event. We can't wait to see and our team truly appreciates the support!"

The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable, family entertainment and have drawn 7.7 million fans to FirstEnergy Park since their 2001 inception.
