Minor League Mix-up: Detroit Minor League Teams Set To Swap Uniforms
Detroit sports teams have a great network of minor league farm teams and a majority are close by in the Midwest region. Take the city of Toledo, Ohio for example, home to the Toledo Walleye (Detroit Red Wings ECHL affiliate) and the Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers AAA affiliate).
On April 8th these two teams will be switching uniforms and color schemes in a night celebrating sports in the city of Toledo.
The Toledo Mud Hens will wear hockey inspired jerseys based on the Walleye for their home game against the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati AAA affiliate) and the Walleye will wear baseball inspired jerseys based on the Mud Hens for their game against the Kalamazoo Wings (Columbus ECHL affiliate).
The only trouble for fans in the region or those planning to go see the mix-up is the timing of the two games. The Mud Hens have their first pitch scheduled for 6:35 P.M. while the Walleye have an 8:15 P.M. game start on Opposites Day, not enough leeway to have anybody be able to watch the entirety of both games.
