The award for best promotion at the ball park goes to…the State College Spikes! On Sunday, June 29 the Class-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals will host legend Carlton Banks from “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, also known as Alfonso Ribeiro.
That’s not even the best part of this particular evening. The Spikes will host the Williamsport Crosscutters, the Phillies' Class-A affiliate, and are all set to wear spectacular “Fresh Prince”-themed jerseys. The design speaks for itself, but it stems from the opening credits of the 1990’s television hit and the designers did not miss a beat.
Fans attending the game will have the chance to snag their own fresh jersey during an auction in which the proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
