Fan to play with Slammers during 'Battle of Sexes' game
7/3/2014, 12:20 p.m.
The Joliet Slammers are taking on the Dutch National Fast Pitch softball team in a “Battle of The Sexes” game on July 14 at Silver Cross Field. One lucky fan will be able to suit up with the Slammers by bidding for a roster spot on eBay.
In addition to earning a spot on the Slammers roster for this special event, the winning bidder will take home their very own Slammers jersey and hat, have their own locker for the day, take batting practice with the team, enjoy pre-game and post-game meals with the team, and receive four club tickets for friends and family.
Bidding for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will close exactly one week after it starts, providing the newest member of the Joliet Slammers with a full weekend to prepare. Slammers General Manager Chris Franklin looks forward to the Slammers newest addition.
“We’re all excited for this event and we look forward to adding to our roster. It will be a fun opportunity for sure, but our winner must be informed – this is not slow pitch, the Dutch are bringing the heat!”
The game will start at 7:05 p.m.
