Trenton Thunder want you to trade in your old Riversharks gear for tix

The Trenton Thunder are hoping to take advantage of the demise of the Camden Riversharks to recruit new fans.

If you’ve got hats, shirts, jerseys, pants, shorts, socks or shoes of the Camden Riversharks, (or the Atlantic City Surf or Newark Bears), you may exchange your items at the Thunder ticket office and receive a $13 ticket to a 2016 Thunder game (based upon availability), a food voucher, and 20% off at the Thunder company store. There’s a limit of one item of clothing per person per transaction.

“We’re proud to put together a program of this nature,” said Thunder GM/COO Jeff Hurley in a team-issued press release. “The Thunder play the highest level of professional baseball in the state of New Jersey and we are here to stay!”

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not planning to trade in my Bears or Riversharks caps for Thunder tix. But then again, I’ve still got a NJ Cardinals cap too.

The Trenton Thunder released some information about their 2016 promotional schedule today. Yankees fans will be looking forward to Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird bobblehead giveaways this season.

I’m not positive, but it looks like the annual baseball card team set giveaway might not be happening this year. Instead, there’s a Hometown Heroes card set giveaway scheduled for June 30th.

There’s a Star Wars Night on May 25th… and that’s really about it for things that might get me to make a special effort to go to a particular Trenton Thunder game this year.
