The Mahoning Valley Scrappers are hosting a contest for children 12 and under to design a Scrappers jersey. On Saturday, August 5, the Scrappers will wear the winning designed jersey for the game. The jerseys will be available for auction with proceeds benefiting Akron Children's Hospital Mahoning Valley.
The child with the winning design will receive a jersey, the opportunity to throw out a first pitch on August 5 and time in the dugout with the Scrappers players pre-game. Five honorable mention designs will be chosen and acknowledged at the August 5 game on the video board. The children with the honorable mention designs will also receive free Lil' Scrappers Kids Club memberships.
