Baseball Team Holds Contests For Kids, Interior Design Students

NEWARK – The Newark Bears professional baseball team will hold tryouts to pick nine children, ages 4-12, to appear in the team’s holiday photo and promote the Newark Bears Kids’ Club.

The tryouts will be held on Nov. 27 from 10 a.m. – noon at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium, 450 Broad Street. Parents should bring two recent photos of their children to the tryouts (the photos do not need to be professional.)


The nine children who are selected will win Bears paraphernalia and four sets of season tickets so they can watch the Bears with their family.

Interior design students are invited to participate in another contest to re-design a portion of the stadium into “a fun, creative and visually stunning Bear’s den.”

Registration and a walk-through of the design area will take place this afternoon, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. Final judging will take place on Monday, Nov. 29 at 3 p.m. The winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship, a 10-person VIP party and an award plaque.
