Gordy Makes Debut Appearance at Thunderbolts Opening Day Game

gordy-picBridgeview, IL – Lifting Gear Hire’s prehistoric mascot, Gordy, made his debut appearance at the opening day game of local baseball team, the Windy City Thunderbolts, on Thursday, May 12, 2016.


During the bottom of the 7th inning, Gordy stepped out into the field in all of his Jurassic glory to give away t-shirts and take pictures with the fans. Gordy’s presence at the sporting event was in part of a sponsorship campaign between LGH and the Thunderbolts.


As part of the sponsorship, the Thunderbolts will execute an on-field promotion at each regular season home game during 2016. This includes installing a 7’ x 16’ Gordy sign above the outfield wall in left center field, a Gordy game appearing on the video board of “Gordy’s Hard Hat Challenge,” and a static image of LGH’s logo appearing during the games along with a public address announcement.


As prime sponsors of the Thunderbolts, LGH and Gordy simply love baseball and want to show their support for local sport teams.
