The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy are taking on the Dutch National Fast Pitch softball team in a “Battle of The Sexes” game on Monday, July 14, at Silver Cross Field in downtown Joliet.  

One lucky fan will be able to suit up with the Slammers by bidding for a roster spot on eBay starting Friday at 8 a.m. (CST). Bidding for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will close exactly one week after it starts, providing the newest member of the Joliet Slammers with a full weekend to prepare. Slammers General Manager Chris Franklin looks forward to the Slammers newest addition.

In addition to earning a spot on the Slammers roster for this special event, the winning bidder will take home their very own Slammers jersey and hat, have their own locker for the day, take batting practice with the team, enjoy pre-game and post-game meals with the team, and have four Club tickets for friends and family included.

“We’re all excited for this event and we look forward to adding to our roster.  It will be a fun opportunity for sure, but our winner must be informed – this is not slow pitch, the Dutch are bringing the heat," Franklin said.

The first pitch is at 7:05 p.m. July 14, with gates opening one hour prior.
