Join Bridgewater Commons for an exciting afternoon of fun and a special meet and greet with Central Jersey’s most lovable mascot, Somerset Patriots’ very own Sparkee! Receive fun Patriots giveaways, free photo opportunity with Sparkee and a chance to win tickets to the Patriots’ special game on July 25th featuring Paw Patrol.
Making his debut in July of 1998, Sparkee has since gone on to become one of the most popular characters in the Central New Jersey area. Sparkee received his name in a contest run to help the team name the mascot before the Somerset Patriots even played a game. He is named after New York Yankees legend and then Somerset Patriots manager Sparky Lyle. His named was spelled S-p-a-r-k-e-e to give him his own identity, though he does have Sparky’s handlebar mustache worked into his look.
