Game Postponed - MDA Jersey Off the Back Rescheduled

Due to the weather, the August 16th game against the Washington Wild Things has been postoned. The MDA Jersey Off The Back has been rescheduled for August 30th. Last season the MDA was able to raise some outstanding funds for the non-profit organization and we look forward to raising more money for this great cause. 

The game starts at 6:05PM. Gates will open at 5PM. The ThunderBolts will be wearing customized 1982 St. Louis Cardinals throwback style baby blue pullover jerseys with white and black trim.  The design features the ThunderBolts lettering in script with two images of Boomer sitting atop the baseball bat.  One Boomer is showing a number 1 and the other a number 2 for the championships the ThunderBolts have won over the last two seasons.  These jerseys will be auctioned off immediately following the game versus the Evansville Otters. 

When asked about this annual event, MDA Fundraising Coordinator Marcy Brandis stated, " "We are honored to be partnering again with the Windy City ThunderBolts as we auction off special "Jerseys Off Their Backs" with the company of some of our local client families.  We cannot express enough gratitude for the support the fans show for this exciting event and are proud to tell them that the funds raised over the past 3 years has helped send 38 kids to MDA Summer Camp!  The partnership that has grown between the MDA and the ThunderBolts is very genuine and their strong support helps us continue our Quest for a Cure.  With the ThunderBolts being Back-to-Back Champions, it is very exciting to reflect their success on this unique version of the '82 Cardinals jersey! " 

Fans can purchase the jerseys using cash, check or charge card and we ask that you sit behind the ThunderBolts dugout to participate in the live auction following the game.
