The Grizzlies go Twilight

The same day the “Eclipse” trailer hit the ‘Net, the Fresno Grizzlies have announced their theme nights, and one of them will be of interest to Twilight fans. The team is having a “Twilight” night, and will wear either vampire or werewolf jerseys, depending on what fans vote for more. Which do you prefer?


Per the Griz:

Saturday, June 26th, the Grizzlies will celebrate a pop culture phenomenon by hosting “Twilight Night” on the evening of a lunar eclipse. At the core of the Twilight craze is one of the most hotly debated topics in recent memory, which can be summed up succinctly in one question: Team Edward or Team Jacob? In advance of the highly anticipated third installment of the movie series, fans will be able to decide the outcome of that debate by voting on the team’s Facebook Fan Page between a customized vampire (Team Edward) or werewolf (Team Jacob) jersey. The winning jersey will be worn by the Grizzlies during Twilight Night, with proceeds of a jersey auction aptly benefiting the Central California Blood Center.

For the complete list of Grizzlies theme nights and jerseys — including a Giants jersey night, kids-created jerseys, Man Night, Friday the 13th Night, Mascot Wrestling Night and more — read the entire announcement at

Neither. Real vampires don’t sparkle.

How about an Underworld Night where they wear leather jerseys? Now that’s something I’d pay to see.

I am not ashamed to admit I love the Twilight series (yes, I’m 25)- but even more so, I’m a baseball fan and these hidious jersey ideas are just ridiculous. I would be humiliated to wear that as a player- all for what? To get teenyboppers into the stands?
Sorry Grizzlies- love you guys but this is embarassing..

Heather says:

It’s to raise money for the blood center.

HildaChester says:

understood that- but point being- the jerseys sketches are just tacky..

Thousands of teenybopper twilight fans = more revenue. I don’t attend many games, but this night seems interesting. What a great way to attract more fans in the stands!

Katrina says:

Someone must really know their twilight stuff: Grizzly bears are a favorite of a Cullen, they enjoy playing baseball. Now someone has come up with a way to parlay that into getting fans in the stands. Interesting….
