When the Okotoks Dawgs decided to find a new jersey for their “5 o’clock Somewhere Saturdays” the big Dawg, John Ircandia went to Pablo Forno seeking help.
Forno runs Grand Slam Sports and is one of the best merchandiser’s in the country. Ircandia challenged him to come up with a suitable jersey, considering the “Jimmy Buffett styled Margaritaville” imagery.
Angelina Cox, the renowned Kentucky decorator, was also involved. Forno, Ircandia and Cox settled on the tie dye style.
The unique uniforms were on display as the Dawgs blanked the Brooks Bombers 12-0.
CJ Lewington (UAPB - Calgary, Alta.) made sure Okotoks won the President’s Trophy, tied a season-high in strikeouts, fanning seven over six innings of shutout baseball.
