LAFAYETTE, INDIANA – March 1, 2023 – The Aviators beloved mascot Ace is finally being
immortalized with his own bobblehead – and even better – he will be handing out his
bobblehead to the first 250 kids on Saturday, July 8.
“In our two seasons at the new Loeb Stadium, fans have made multiple requests for an Ace
bobblehead,” stated Aviators General Manager David Krakower. “When we developed our
promotional schedule for this summer, an Ace bobblehead was at the top of our list. Thanks to
First Farmer’s Bank & Trust we were able to make it happen.”
In addition to Ace bobbleheads being distributed free to kids on July 8, a limited number of
bobbleheads will also be available for purchase in the Aviators store beginning in June.
Former Aviator, and 2021 New York Yankees first round pick, Trey Sweeney was recently
rated as the #7 prospect in the Yankees organization by Pinstripe Alley. Sweeney is currently
participating in spring training with the Yankees in Florida.
Brandon Daniels, an Aviator in 2022 and who is returning to Lafayette this summer, is leading
his college team – Lee University, D2, Cleveland, TN – in hitting with a .377 average after 15
games played and 15 starts.
