Skeeters to Wear Special-Edition Uniforms Throughout Playoffs as Tribute to Battle of Gonzales
(Sugar Land, Texas, Sept. 12, 2019) - The Sugar Land Skeeters today unveiled their special-edition “Come and Take It” uniforms that will be worn during the 2019 Atlantic League postseason.

They’ll be hosting Games 1 and 2 of the Freedom Division Championship Series on Sept. 24 and 25 at Constellation Field. The Skeeters 2019 postseason is sponsored by Evolution Rx Pharmacy.

The Skeeters chose the “Come and Take It” theme as a tribute to the 1835 Battle of Gonzales, which was the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution. As part of the “Come and Take It” theme, the Skeeters will have a replica cannon on site that will be shot off before each game, as well as Battle of Gonzales reenactors available for photos and meet-and-greets throughout the game.
There will be several ticketing and promotional specials based off significant dates from the Battle of Gonzales. Each playoff game at Constellation Field will begin at 6:35 p.m. as a tribute to the year 1835 when the Battle of Gonzales occurred. Fans can also purchase all-you-can-eat tickets for the HEB Picnic Plaza for $18.35.
