the Lakewood Pine Barons.  Would you cheer for the Pine Barons as loud as you cheer for the BlueClaws.  Lakewood BlueClaws has that ring to it.

According to a statement from the team, the BlueClaws played their first game in 2001 and unveiled their team name in 2000. At that time, hundreds of names had been sent in as nominations before the name "BlueClaws" was selected, but what might the name have been if BlueClaws was not selected?  Yep, the Lakewood Pine Barons was going to be the name!

This Sunday, June 22nd 2014 the BlueClaws will become the "Pine Barons".  Sounds like so much fun!  The team will wear special jerseys and hats just for this one game.  The jerseys will be auctioned off and they'll have Pine Baron merchandise at the Stadium this Sunday only while supplies last.

The game starts at 1:05 pm with the gates opening at 12 pm. Since it's a Sunday, kids Eat Free thanks to ShopRite and members of the BlueClaws (Pine Barons) Kids Club presented by Jenkinson's and NJ Best will get in for free.
