New era: BlueClaws undergo makeover, with new name, logo and uniforms
The BlueClaws are getting a makeover ahead of the 2021 baseball season, and will no longer be called the Lakewood BlueClaws, but the Jersey Shore BlueClaws.
The announcement was made Wednesday in Asbury Park, and with the new name comes a new logo and uniforms.
The BlueClaws are the single A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillie Phanatic was on hand for the change.
“The idea of the Jersey Shore at this entity finally having its own hometown baseball team and that's what resonated strongly with us, that's what got us most excited is to say, finally the Jersey Shore has its own hometown team,” says Joe Ricciutti, Jersey Shore BlueClaws president and general manager.
The BlueClaws also signed another 10-year lease and will remain at First Energy Park in Lakewood through 2031.
