On 24 June 2017 the Bulgarian Baseball League hosted a unique event at baseball field ‘Oktomvri’ (October) in Sofia, Bulgaria.
This is Throwback Saturday 2017!
The regular season game between Sofia Blues and Athletic Sofia will see both teams hit the field wearing throwback uniforms in a tribute to previous generations of Bulgarian baseball players.
In 2017 the Blues and Athletic are in a fearlessly battle for the top spot in the League (a few games before the end of the regular phase and the start of the Playoffs, the Blues sit atop the league while Athletic are a game behind), but all players will sport vintage pants, shirts, facial hair and attributes.
The vintage atmosphere on the field will further be buyoed by a performance from one of the hottest dancing studios in Sofia who will show off their Lindy Hop, Charleston and Boogie Woogie Swing moves prior to the first pitch.
All of the action from the pre-game performance and the game itself was streamed live via Bulgarian Baseball League’s FB page and the broadcast will feature live comentary (in Bulgarian).
