“SmellyCats” Name Change Highlights 2017 Specialty Jerseys



The Tri-City ValleyCats announced all four 2017 specialty jerseys this afternoon, which
include a “Christmas in July” jersey, Harry Potter Quidditch jersey, Make-a-Wish jersey, and a “Friends”-
themed jersey.

The ‘Cats will temporarily change their name to the “Tri-City SmellyCats” for “The One with the Friends
Theme” promotion, a 7:00 p.m. game against the Aberdeen Ironbirds on Friday, September 1 at Joseph
L. Bruno Stadium. The jerseys will be auctioned during the game to benefit the Upstate New York MS Society, which hosted a walk at “The Joe” in May.

“The MS Society has had tremendous success in the Capital Region, thanks to the generous people who
live here,” said Kyla Manny, an MS Society representative. “We are thankful for the opportunity to
continue to work with the ValleyCats to raise money and defeat a terrible disease.”

The ‘Christmas in July’ tops will benefit the Salvation Army with a jersey auction on July 12, when the
‘Cats take on the defending New York-Penn League champion State College Spikes.

When the ValleyCats host the Vermont Lake Monsters on Sunday, July 30, the team will don retro
Houston Astros blue jerseys in celebration of Make-a-Wish Northeastern New York’s ‘30 Years of
Wishes’ celebration. The jerseys, which feature a tile portrait of Capital Region wish kids, will be also be
distributed via an auction during the game.

On Monday, August 7, the ‘Cats will wear Harry Potter-themed jerseys and host a raffle during the game
to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
