The team will have new hats and uniforms for made for the special “Crab Night” game against the West Virginia Black Bears at Ripken Stadium.
Mascot Kalvin the Krab will be featured on the uniform “to acknowledge the long and arduous process Maryland crabbers experience every day to deliver the world’s best blue crabs,” the team said in a news release.
The IronBirds are offering a promotion for the game including a $6 oz crab cake. Food vendors at the stadium will offer crab-themed menu options, including steamed crabs, crab cakes, crab macaroni and cheese, and soft-shell crab sandwiches.
