    Fans Will Be Able To Submit Their Own Designs For The New Home Jersey

    The Wisconsin Rapids Rafters are eager to announce the first home jersey design contest! The jersey design that is selected will be the inspiration for the Rafters new home jersey. This jersey will be worn by all Rafters players and coaches for all 36 home games in the 2019 season and the years to come. 

    Rafters’ fans of all ages are encouraged to submit their designs. A blank template will be available on the Rafters website at Raftersbasebal.com. Submissions can be computer designed, painted, colored with pencils/crayons/markers, or any other way to convey concepts.

    The jersey must include the following for the submission to be considered:

    ·         All colors must be Rafters brand colors

    ·         The base color of the jersey must be white

    ·         Numbers should be located on the front and back of the jersey

    The winning artist will receive their own Rafters home jersey inspired by their design. They will also have the opportunity to throw out a first pitch on Opening Day, along with up to six tickets for their friends and family.
