Fresno Grizzlies Wear Harry Potter Jerseys

One of the best parts of Minor League Baseball games are the cool promotions teams hold. We saw one team give away Anthony Weiner boxers for a game. Another minor league team held a Jim Tressel rest the vest night. But one of the most distinguished promotions was the Fresno Grizzlies wearing these Harry Potter jerseys on Saturday night:

Not only was it Harry Potter night for the Grizzlies, but they also gave away Buster Posey bobbleheads to fans. Making the night even more special was the Triple-A squad gained a 4-3 walk-off win. Best of all, the jerseys will be available in auctions according to the Fresno Bee, so fear not, Harry Potter fans.

The best part of all was after the baseball game ended, they broke out an impromptu game of quidditch.

OK, that didn’t really happen, but it would have been awesome if it did.

    Quittage? Don’t you mean Quidditch? Unless it’s a joke I’m not getting…
    Regardless, I wish I had known about this. I never heard a single thing advertising HP night. I’m a huge HP fan, and I would’ve gone had I known. Will the jersey auction be held soon or did it immediately follow the game?

    I can answer that question! The live auction was held after the game and all but 6 jerseys went home with happy bidders. The auction was a benefit for Junior Achievement of Northern California, and we now have the last 6 jerseys. If anyone is interested, they are $325.00. For more details, call 559-224-1046. Thank you!
