The Maine Red Snappers logo features an outline of the state of Maine in the background, with a red hot dog in a split top New England style bun holding a baseball bat and wearing a Maine trapper hat. This logo will be featured on the hat, which is navy with a red brim. The jerseys will be white with “Red Snappers” spelled across the front. The Red Snapper font features hot dog-shaped lettering with grill marks. The logo will also be featured on the sleeve of the jerseys. The sleeves also feature a red cross hatch pattern which resembles the traditional paper tray in which hot dogs are frequently served. The piping around the neck, buttons, and sleeves features red hot dog links.
In celebration of National Hot Dog Month (July), the Portland Sea Dogs will become the Maine Red Snappers, presented by Kayem, on Saturday, July 24th when the Sea Dogs host the Harrisburg Senators at 6:00 PM.
The name change pays homage to Maine’s iconic red hot dog. Known for their bright red color and snap from the natural casing, Maine’s red snapper hot dogs are traditionally served in a split top New England style hot dog bun. The red hot dogs have been the go-to hot dog for many Mainers for over 100 years.
As part of the night the team will wear specially designed Red Snapper jerseys and hats.
The game will feature red snapper/ hot dog themed promotions. Of course, there will be plenty of red snappers for fans to enjoy at the game.
