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.

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
