To bring the night to life, the team will wear specialty hats and jerseys, featuring the Maine Whoopie Pies logo: a fierce Whoopie Pie character at-bat. This primary logo adorns the front of the hats and the left sleeves of the jerseys. The alternate logo depicts a whoopie pie in the shape of the state of Maine and is highlighted on the side of the caps and the left sleeves of the jerseys. Sandwiched chocolate brown and white panels on the hats create a whoopie pie effect. The jerseys echo this wearable-whoopie effect with brown front and backs, with white panels sandwiched on the sides. "Whoopie Pies" is spelled loud and proud across the front of each jersey, in creamy white lettering.
The Maine Whoopie Pies will return to action in 2024, presented by Trademark Federal Credit Union.
The Maine Whoopie Pies made their debut at Hadlock Field in 2019. This will mark the fifth time the team has taken the field as the Whoopie Pies. The name change is in celebration of the official state treat of Maine: the whoopie pie!
Whoopie Pies from Wicked Whoopies will be served at the game. Rising Tide will also be serving their Wicked Whoopie beer, which is a whoopie pie stout, made in collaboration with Wicked Whoopies. It will be available at the portable bar inside the concourse at Hadlock Field. Slugger will also be joined by “Sweetie Pie”, the official mascot of the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival.
The Maine Whoopie Pie Festival will occur in Dover-Foxcroft on Saturday, June 22nd. For more information on the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival visit MaineWhoopiePieFestival.com.
A whoopie pie is two round chocolate cake-like cookies with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them. Many places claim to be the birthplace of the whoopie pie including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The whoopie pie has been a favorite of Mainer's for nearly a century, with the first whoopie pie in Maine being served by Labadie's Bakery in Lewiston in 1925. The Maine State Legislature named the whoopie pie the official state treat in 2011. The world's largest whoopie pie, weighing over 1,000 pounds, was made in South Portland in 2011 by Wicked Whoopies.
In 2023, the Sea Dogs created a World Record by lining up 2,129 whoopie pies side-by-side in front of Hadlock Field for an uninterrupted block stretching 665 feet.
