Come one, come all, and let’s talk baseball.
The Larks are warming up for the 2019 season and you should be too!
What is the Winter Warm-Up?
Great Question. Here’s your answer.
The Winter Warm-Up is the Larks version of the classic Hot Stove Event held by many baseball teams throughout the country.
In the early days of baseball, the Hot Stove Season referred to an actual baseball season: Hot Stove Leagues, in which MLB players would stay in shape by playing baseball in their hometowns while staying warm with actual hot stoves.
Eventually the Hot Stove concept turned into a social event. On a cold day prior to the season, fans would gather around the hot stove to discuss their favorite team.
This winter, we want YOU to talk about your favorite team — THE LARKS!
The Larks Winter-Warm Up is your one-stop spot to hear about the Larks upcoming season, players and much more. Fans will have the opportunity to hear from Larks Head Coach, Sean Repay and General Manager, John Bollinger. Headlining the event is three-time MLB All-Star and former Minnesota Twins pitcher, Glen Perkins.
Fans will also get the chance to meet the team’s new female mascot presented by H.A. Thompson & Sons.
Earlier this year, the Larks and H.A. Thompson & Sons gave fans the opportunity to help choose the new mascot’s name. The final four names selected from over 500 submissions were Louise, Mary Lou, Meadow and Merifeather Lewis. You can vote for your favorite name by clicking here.
“Fans and Clark are really excited to meet our new mascot,” Larks general manager John Bollinger said. “We received so many great, fun submissions and we can’t wait to officially introduce her to the community.
The event is open to the public and fans of all ages are welcome to attend!
Inflatables. Music. FUN. And more!
