ROCKFORD — If you haven’t been down to the BMO Harris Bank Center this year to check out the Rockford IceHogs, well what are you waiting for?

The Hogs are gearing up for the playoffs and could use your support. The best part about the IceHogs is that they are a very fan-friendly team and catching a game is such a great experience. They also have great giveaways for the fans, and this Sunday is Garret Mitchell Hat Day. The Hogs are taking on the Grand Rapids Griffins and the first 1,500 fans will receive a hat designed by team captain Garrett Mitchell, inspired by first responders in the Rockford area.

“This is the second year where we’ve done a player hat design. Garret designed the hat for Sunday,” said IceHogs General Manager Mike Peck. “It’s a first responders hat. It turned out awesome and the first 1,500 fans will pick up one of those. It’s really cool to see the players personality come out in these hat designs.”

So make sure you get there early to grab a one of a kind hat designed by Garrett. Game time is 4 p.m. Sunday at the BMO. Get your hat and cheer on the Hogs!
