Courtesy of Toledo Mud HensToledo, Ohio, has a well-known minor league baseball team named the Mud Hens, but on June 16 you may want to call them “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts ball club.”

That night, the team is planning to mark the 50th anniversary of The BeatlesSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album by wearing jerseys designed to resemble the colorful jackets that the Fab Four donned on the 1967 album’s cover.

It’s all part of a special promotion that not only will pay tribute to The Beatles, but will also raise money for charity. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on the jerseys that the team members will wear at the game, which will be sold during a silent auction held that same evening. Proceeds raised will benefit the Northwest Ohio Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Mud Hens’ Helping Hens fund.

The special theme night at Toledo’s Hensville Park also will feature a performance by a Beatles cover group called Hard Day’s Night and a fireworks display. In addition, the Mud Hens are encouraging fans attending the game to dress up as their favorite Beatle. The team will be playing North Carolina’s Durham Bulls that night.
