Sharks Celebrate 20th Anniversary in Wilmington

The Wilmington Sharks are excited to announce that the team has officially unveiled a new logo to commemorate 20 years of baseball in Wilmington. The logo will be featured on sleeves of Sharks jerseys during the 2017 summer season, which begins on Tuesday, May 30th at Buck Hardee Field at Legion Sports Complex.


The 20th season mark was developed by Skye Design Studios, a brand identity and design firm with locations in the greater New York City area and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. “It was a pleasure to team up with the Sharks on this piece. Commemorative marks offer a unique opportunity to explore regional iconography as ways to help tell the club’s story, in the case of Wilmington, featuring the USS North Carolina battleship and Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.”


Coming off of one most productive years in team history, the Wilmington Sharks look to maintain momentum during their 28 home games throughout the course of the 2017 summer season. The upcoming season includes six Thirsty Thursdays as well as eight games on Friday or Saturday nights.


“We are excited to celebrate 20 unforgettable years in Wilmington,” said Pat Hutchins, Wilmington Sharks General Manager. “While the last 20 years have been great, we truly feel that the best is yet to come.” The Sharks have six promotional give-away nights and four post-game fireworks shows planned in order to show appreciation for 20 years of support from the Wilmington community.


A full schedule for promotional nights during 2017, as well as season ticket and mini-season ticket plans will be announced in an upcoming press release.
