Pinchy Returns - BlueClaws to Wear Original Uniforms For Each "Throwback Thursday"

Original white pin-striped uniforms to be worn at each Thursday home game in 2017; includes return of "Pinchy" cap
October 26, 2016

LAKEWOOD, NJ - This coming season, Thursdays will be Throwback Thursdays at FirstEnergy Park, with the BlueClaws throwing it back to Pinchy and their original uniforms.

Pinchy, the crab on the team's original logo, worn from 2001 through 2009, will return and the BlueClaws will wear their white pin-striped uniforms at all 12 Thursday home games.

"We have gotten a lot of great feedback over our new logo and uniforms over the last several seasons, but many fans have asked about seeing Pinchy again," said BlueClaws General Manager Chris Tafrow. "This is a great way for us to honor our past with Pinchy and we're looking forward to the Opening Day re-unveiling."

The Pinchy logo, worn on a navy blue cap with a navy blue brim, will be one of four different on-field caps worn by the BlueClaws in 2017. The team's current cap logo "Clawd," which became active in 2010, is worn on a navy blue cap with a navy blue brim in their standard home uniforms. The Clawd logo on a red cap with a navy blue brim is worn on the road. The team also uses their alternate "Crusher" logo on a navy blue cap with a light blue brim as an alternate on-field cap.

Pin-stripe jerseys with "BlueClaws" in its original font will be available in the Claws Cove, as will fitted hats with Pinchy.

PRE-ORDER JERSEYS - Adult, white, pin-striped jerseys are available for pre-order online by clicking here. Jerseys will be available in time for the holidays. Hats will not be available until the spring.
