Mascot deliveries are helping mascots show their value and generate revenue.
Slugger the mascot for the Portland Sea Dogs has his own deliveries planned this month with Trick-or-Treat Halloween Deliveries.
The special delivery from Slugger will include a bucket of candy and your choice of a t-shirt from one of the Sea Dogs alternate identities…either the Maine Whoopie Pies or Alces de Maine.
Slugger will make all of the deliveries during the day on Friday, October 30th. All deliveries will comply with social distancing guidelines. Delivery locations must be within a 30-mile radius of Hadlock Field.
Packages are available for $100.00 and can be purchased by calling the Sea Dogs Ticket Office. (team site)
Slugger’s Coordinator Tim Jorn noted this is the second year for the Halloween promotion. Demand is up from last year, perhaps due to the uncertainly of people actually being able to go Trick-or-Treating.
Slugger will make this year’s deliveries in his Halloween costume, similar to the in-season costumes he wears for Superhero Day and Star Wars Night.
Jorn added “Slugger has done Valentine’s Day deliveries for many years, which gets high demand from adults. Last year we decided to use that same concept for Halloween, which is geared more towards kids and younger fans.
In addition to the deliveries, Slugger will holding his 3rd annual Halloween costume contest online. This year the winner will get an appearance from Slugger, candy, and a Sea Dogs souvenir.
Every appearance (deliveries and costume contest winner’s) follows local social distancing guidelines.
