I can't wait for the first "Play Ball" of the upcoming season

I have said this before many times, the Bismarck Larks is a first-class organization...PERIOD. The way they treat their fans like their own family, it's just downright perfect.  This is what the owner and CEO John Bollinger humbly instills in his crew - from interns to paid employees - they greet each and everyone warmly and are motivated to do what they can for the community. This year a fairly new tradition is coming back!

The Bismarck Larks Will Change Their Name For One Game On May 30

*** May 1, 2024

(Bismarck, ND) - Ahead of summertime and boat launch on the mighty Missouri River, the Bismarck Larks baseball team of the Northwoods League will change their name to the Missouri River Motorboaters for one game on Thursday, May 30. This is the second straight season in which the rebrand for one singular game will take place.

The original promotion and rebrand was given the 2023 Northwoods League Promotion of the Year and was featured on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Barstool Sports’ BFF Podcast, Jomboy’s Talkin’ Baseball, Sir Yacht and several other notable social media accounts. It garnered millions of social media impressions, sold merchandise in all 50 states in less than four hours, and sold out of all inventory before the initial unveil day was over. The brand even made its way into the popular video game MLB The Show.

For Season 2, the players and coaches will wear new specialty-designed hats and jerseys for the game against the Duluth Huskies at Dakota Community Bank & Trust Field. Jerseys will be auctioned off during the game with all net proceeds benefiting a local charity. The team also has a variety of new summer-themed t-shirts, tank tops hats, and other merchandise available for sale now at mrmotorboaters.com.
