Blue Rocks Partner With Nick Jr. to Celebrate Paw Patrol at Frawley Stadium

Wilmington is First Minor League Club to Bring the Popular Kids Characters to Ballpark
June 20, 2016

Wilmington, DE -- The Wilmington Blue Rocks are pleased to announce they are the first Minor League Baseball team to celebrate Nick Jr. Night Featuring PAW Patrol, which is coming to Frawley Stadium on Sunday, August 21. The afternoon will include special customized PAW Patrol jerseys and appearances by popular characters from Nickelodeon's hit preschool show, which is produced by Spin Master Entertainment.

Chase and Marshall will be on hand to meet and greet their fans. The Blue Rocks will set up an area at the stadium allowing patrons the opportunity to interact with the characters, and have their picture taken with each. On the field, both teams will wear special customized uniforms representing both Chase and Marshall. The design of the uniforms will almost make the players look like the PAW Patrol characters themselves. After the contest, the jerseys will be auctioned to benefit the Grayson Saves Foundation. The full design will be unveiled during a special Nick Jr. Social Media Experience later this summer.

"This is an incredible honor for our organization to partner with Nickelodeon. and bring characters as overwhelmingly popular as Chase and Marshal from PAW Patrol to our fans at Frawley Stadium," said Blue Rocks director of advertising sales Brian Radle. "This type of promotion fits perfectly with our brand of family friendly entertainment, and provides Blue Rocks fans with the rare opportunity to meet the characters they watch constantly on television. I know as a parent, my children watch Paw Patrol all the time and are excited for the chance to interact with two of their favorites in Chase and Marshall.

"Then when you add to it the opportunity to raise money for such a worthy local cause like the Grayson Saves Foundation, we think this has the prospect to be one of, if not our most popular games of the season. We thank Nickelodeon. for their willingness to share their characters and resources with our excited fans."

The Grayson Saves Foundation raises money and awareness in the fight against pediatric brain cancer. The foundation is named in honor of Grayson Savery, a Delaware native who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at age two in 2012, and has been receiving treatment since at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. To date, the foundation has raised, roughly, $65,000 for CHOP.

The Rocks and Nick Jr. will also partner to provide fans with an opportunity to receive plenty of great giveaway items throughout the game, including: temporary tattoos, stickers, pictures and much more. Thanks to our friends at Target, the Blue Rocks will also offer a limited edition Blue Rocks PAW Patrol t-shirt for purchase at the Quarry Team Store, and will have special PAW Patrol ticket packages available for the game.
