Celebrating the Championship
All in all 2010 was a magical season, culminated by our organizations first New York-Penn League title. Currently in the planning phases is a championship trophy tour that will coincide with the MLB Playoffs. Right now we are working with the Recovery Sports Grill and will have a date picked out very soon.
A shipment of championship t-shirts came in last week and have been flying off the shelves. We have ordered a new shipment, which will include different types of items such as hats, sweatshirts and pennants. So stay tuned at tcvalleycats.com, and we’ll let you know as soon as those items arrive. We’re also open to any ideas you might have on other items. Let us know on our ValleyCats Facebook page.
Check out the logo which will be featured on the sweatshirts and hats:

On Monday night, members of the ValleyCats front office went out to the grand opening of Buffalo Wild Wings in Clifton Park Center. We handed out championship t-shirts and said hello to all the sports fans. The atmosphere is awesome!
Our waitress Jennifer was great! (recommending the nachos and potato fries with cheese).
We even witnessed a wing eating contest where you need to eat 12 of their hottest wings in 6 minutes. This gentleman did it with ease and won a free t-shirt and a photo on the wall..Maybe an idea for our 2011 Wingfest at The Joe?
This is just a few of their famous wing sauces:
