A Cheer Team for a baseball club??
I asked Cheer Team leader Krystal how she thought the idea would be received by baseball fans, "The idea is very foreign, to all of us. I like to look at it as a new exciting way to attract new fans and create a fresh environment to an old game. We in no way want to change the ways of baseball but merely encourage the fans and crowd to support the team. We hope to add visual entertainment during down time in the games."
So then Krystal what are your thoughts and hopes are for the Prospects Dancers? "To have a technically strong group of young beautiful ladies attending every Prospects home game to cheer them on and entertain the crowd. I would like to grow the program into a sought after team to be a part of like other professional dance and cheer teams in the city. I hope the dancers can increase the energy at games and create a new element of entertainment at TELUS field."
General Manger Lynda Holden does not hold back her desire to see new fans at TELUS Field this summer and hopes the Cheer Team is an added wrinkle that brings in fresh faces. The GM is also very cognisant of the Prospects faithful and is rewarding them with a theme night for EVERY home game of the season starting with the City Ford Lucky Prospect Home Opener on Friday May 30st at 7:05PM.
Here's a review of what you get if buy tickets to the Home Opener,
