Duluth Huskies Introduce Live Like a Champ Day

Huskies introduce another promo day

Duluth Minn. – The Duluth Huskies Baseball Club is proud to announce another promotional day for 2018. The 6:35pm game on June 19th will be Live Like a Champ Day. On this day, Champ will be in attendance to sign autographs and meet the fans.

Champ Pederson is the older brother of the Huskies Field Manager, Tyger Pederson. Champ has Down Syndrome, but he doesn’t let that define him. He has become an advocate for people with Down Syndrome and others with disabilities. He strives to be an inspiration to others as a motivational speaker and writer. Sports has always been his passion and he is quite competitive. Champ used to compete in Little League and the Special Olympics as well. Having a family full of athletes has made him very fortunate.

This is also a special game because the Huskies will be playing the La Crosse Loggers. The Lac Crosse Loggers’ Hitting Coach is Stu Pederson, the father of Champ and Tyger. This will be a fun game to watch as the Pederson family has always been competitive. You won’t want to miss it!

The Huskies open the 2018 season with five road games, but open at Wade Stadium Sunday, June 3rd against the Eau Claire Express. Season tickets, punch cards, and other ticket packages are still available. For more information, contact the Duluth Huskies front office at 218-786-9909 or huskies@duluthhuskies.com.
