Great Lakes Base, Mando Mercs and Ohio Garrison teamed up with the Akron Aeros for our second annual "Star Wars Night" baseball game; benefitting Akron Children's Hospital (located across the street from Canal Park). In addition to having us Star Wars characters on hand for pictures with fans and post-game SW fireworks, this years game featured the Aeros wearing custom Star Wars jerseys... that were auctioned off, with proceeds going to Akron Children's Hospital.
The jersey auction helped raise $2869 for Akron Children’s Hospital. This was by far the most money ever raised at an Aeros jersey auction.
Thanks to some “aggressive negotiations” by Snips92 -- negotiations with a pen, rather than a lightsaber -- we managed to WIN Aeros 3rd Baseman Ryan Rohlinger's "Star Wars Night" jersey. Afterwards, everyone took turns posing for pictures holding the jersey -- it was like our own championship trophy, being passed around the players to celebrate.
