The SeaWolves are pleased to announce that the team will be honored as the champions of the BUSH'S Home Run Recipes national contest at UPMC Park on Friday, August 11.
Jay Bush, BUSH's Brand Ambassador and great-grandson of BUSH's founder A.J. Bush, and Duke, the BUSH's Beans spokesdog, will be at UPMC Park to greet fans and honor the SeaWolves for their championship recipe.
On July 18, it was announced that the Mojo & AC Rocket Dog, named after the Rocket 101 morning crew hosts, beat out 64 other food items from across Minor League Baseball in a national voting contest and was named the top concession item in all of Minor League Baseball. The winning recipe features a freshly grilled Jumbo Smith's Hot Dog, locally made in Erie, Pennsylvania, topped with in-house smoked pulled pork, homemade macaroni & cheese, grilled bacon and dressed with rocket fuel (BBQ sauce). It can be purchased nightly at the Smith's Sausage Shack located on the left field concourse of UPMC Park.
Fans will be able to meet and take a photo with Duke before the SeaWolves game against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at 7:05 p.m. Duke will then take the field during the ceremonial first pitches and award presentation before returning to take photos during the first two innings of the game.
The first 1,000 fans (15 & older) will receive a replica SeaWolves Fauxback Friday jersey. Fans can also take advantage of Happy Hour specials featuring $2 Budweiser and Bud Light drafts, as well as Pepsi fountain drinks, exclusively in the Bud Light Beer Garden until first pitch.
