EL PASO – June 23, 2017 – It’s a Fireworks Spectacular! as the Chihuahuas celebrate America’s birthday with the unveiling of the Stars and Stripes jerseys and caps to be worn during the July 1st, 2nd and 3rd GECU Independence Day Celebration games.
The jerseys will accompany the best fireworks in El Paso beginning with a postgame Fireworks Spectacular presented by KVIA and KISS FM on July 1st, a special fireworks presentation on July 2nd and an extended postgame fireworks program on July 3rd. Sunday’s celebration will also feature the Bank of America Manager for the Day where the Chihuahuas will recognize a former veteran as submitted by fans.
Made by OT Sports, the jerseys showcase the patriotic red, white & blue colors. The jersey features a white color block on the top half of the bodice and blue across the bottom covered in opaque stars. Red piping separates the two halves. The sleeves are white with red and blue trim.
The Chihuahuas will auction the game-worn Stars and Stripes jerseys on July 3rd, with proceeds benefiting the El Maida Shriners and the Chihuahuas Foundation.
The New Era 59FIFTY fitted Stars and Stripes cap, which made its initial debut in 2008, can be seen across Minor and Major League Baseball during the Independence Day weekend around the country.
