Jersey Auction, Red Bulls, Sky Blue FC at Soccer Night

May 24, 2010 10:01 AM

LAKEWOOD, NJ - BlueClaws Soccer Night on June 17th will feature a BlueClaws World Cup Jersey Auction and an autograph signing by the New York Red Bulls, a Major League Soccer team based in Harrison, New Jersey, and a pre-game clinic with members of Sky Blue FC of Women's Professional Soccer.

The BlueClaws World Cup jersey auction comes one day before Team USA's second World Cup game, on June 18th against Slovenia.

Members of the Red Bulls will be signing autographs on the concourse during the game after participating in ceremonial first "kicks." Red Bulls players will also take part in several between-innings promotions at that night's game.

Sky Blue FC will offer a pre-game clinic for local teams in front of the ballpark beginning at 5 pm. The clinic is open to teams that come out to the game as a group.

All soccer teams that come on this night will get to take part in a pre-game parade on the field and will receive special BlueClaws Soccer Patches that will only be given out at this game.

Tasha Kai and Danielle Johnson will represent Sky Blue FC at the game and will each throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Kai, a forward, scored the game-winning goal in the 2009 Women's Pro Soccer Championship for Sky Blue FC and is a member of the Women's National Team. Johnson, a defensive back, was a 4th round pick from Ole Miss in 2010.

Additional team representatives will take part in the clinic.
