Crustacean Nation can help create a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp T-shirt for the upcoming 2019 season. The club’s contest and fan vote will determine the winning design to be featured on T-shirts as the free giveaway, courtesy of 121 Financial Credit Union and Atlantic Self Storage, to the first 2,000 fans at the Jumbo Shrimp’s home game on Saturday, April 6.
Fans may submit designs via email to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20. The Jumbo Shrimp will select five finalists from the submissions to be posted on the Jumbo Shrimp Facebook page (www.facebook.com/jaxshrimp), where a Crustacean Nation fan vote will take place from Jan. 22-27. The winner, who will be announced on Monday, Jan. 28, will receive 10 tickets to the April 6 game, 15 of the winning shirts and a ceremonial first pitch that evening.
All T-shirt designs must be based on the club’s four colors: St. Johns Navy (Pantone 282 C), American Red (Pantone 185 C), Patriotic Blue (Pantone 285 C), Shrimp (Pantone 1625 C) and white. Designs may be altered to fit the colors listed.
Yulee resident Josh Reavis’ “Shrimply The Best” was the winning design of more than 80 entries in last year’s contest. Reavis’ design received more than two-thirds of the more than 1,200 votes from Jumbo Shrimp fans.
Opening Day for the Jumbo Shrimp’s 2019 season is Thursday, April 4, against the Jackson (Tennessee) Generals at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. Visit www.jaxshrimp.com or call (904) 358-2846 for tickets or more information.
