Northwoods League Celebrating 25th Season in 2018
Logo release kicks off the Northwoods League’s 25th Season Celebration; commemorative content, graphics and charitable initiatives to be implemented throughout the year.
Rochester, Minn. – The Northwoods League is turning 25 this summer. To commemorate this quarter century milestone, the League has unveiled a “25 Seasons” logo that will be featured on-field and across its digital platforms throughout the 2018 campaign.
Visitors to Northwoodsleague.com and its network of team websites will see the celebratory theme prominently displayed across site headers and background graphics. League social media accounts, the Northwoods League mobile app, and its extensive webcasting and video platform will also showcase 25th Season-themed graphics and content this summer.
On the field, 25th Season patches will be featured on all team home, road and alternate uniforms, along with umpire uniforms. Team batting practice tops will be adorned with a 25th Season design, and a commemorative baseball that includes the 25th Season logo will be used.
Through social media and website content to be released starting in March and continuing through Opening Day, fans will be able to revisit 25 Memorable Moments from the Northwoods League’s first 25 years.
“The celebration of 25 seasons is an exciting milestone we share with our affiliates, fans, alumni and community partners that have been an integral part of our history,” said Gary Hoover, President of the Northwoods League. “We look forward to the opportunity to recognize and honor important benchmarks from our first 25 years, while continuing to provide unparalleled experiences for our players and fans, this season and well into the future.”
The 2018 season, which opens on May 29th, is sure to be filled with memory-making moments of its own. Look for details coming soon about the 2018 Northwoods League All-Star Game and an initiative out of the Northwoods League Foundation that will be part of the 25th Season Celebration.
