BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors, ECHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, announced that the team will wear special "Puffy Shirt" jerseys on Sunday, Nov. 16 in honor of the 25th Anniversary Year of the first Seinfeld episode. These specialty jerseys are part of an entire Seinfeld-themed game night event.
About the jerseys:
The name bars will feature characters from the show instead of the players’ actual surnames. Names confirmed for the evening are:
Jerry, George, Kramer, Newman, Frank Costanza, Puddy, J. Peterman, Steinbrenner, Morty Seinfeld, Uncle Leo, Art Vandelay, Kenny Bania, Lloyd Braun, Jackie Chiles, Crazy Joe Davola, Mandelbaum, Bubble Boy, Keith Hernandez, Mickey Abbott.
Of course, these jerseys would not be possible without the support of our great sponsors, featured prominently on the backs: Vandelay Industries, Pendant Publishing, Kramerica, Del Boca Vista, and "RESTAURANT."
The jerseys will be auctioned off for the M.A.R.E. Riding Center in Bakersfield. PLUS everyone in attendance will have a chance to win one of five to be given away. M.A.R.E. stands for Mastering Abilities Riding Equines and provides therapeutic equine assisted activities for the benefit of people living with special needs and disabilities.

Condors jersey auctions have raised a remarkable $894,893 for various local charities in Bakersfield and Kern County in their history.
