Rafters holding jersey design contest
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin Rapids Rafters are holding their first home jersey design contest. The jersey design that is selected will be the inspiration for the Rafters new home jersey. This jersey will be worn by all Rafters players and coaches for all 36 home games in the 2019 season and years to come.
Rafters’ fans of all ages are encouraged to submit their designs. A blank template will be available on the Rafters website at Raftersbaseball.com. Submissions can be computer designed, painted, colored with pencils/crayons/markers, or any other means to convey concepts.
The jersey must be created using Rafters colors, the base color of the jersey must be white, and the numbers should be located on the front and back of the jersey.
The winning artist will receive their own Rafters home jersey inspired by their design. They will also have the opportunity to throw out a first pitch on Opening Day and receive six tickets.
The deadline for all jersey submissions is Jan. 2. Submissions may be sent via e-mail or mail to Hannah at Hannah@raftersbaseball.com or 521 Lincoln St., Wisconsin Rapids, WI, 54494, or dropped off at the Rafthouse.
