In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 21st), the Erie BayHawks celebrated his life and legacy during their game against the Long Island Nets on Saturday.
The team wore the specially designed and themed uniforms featured above. The uniforms were subsequently auctioned off after the game, with all proceeds benefiting the the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center Erie. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech will be commemorated with the word “dream” printed throughout the jersey. Dr. King’s likeness is placed on the side of each uniform, with the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center Erie’s logo beneath the players’ name.
