“CRUSHstacean Nation” wins Jumbo Shrimp fan-designed T-shirt contest

Winning design will be April 18 T-shirt giveaway presented by 121 Financial Credit Union and Atlantic Self Storage

Published Tuesday, February 18, 2020

 

Crustacean Nation’s votes have decided the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp’s annual fan-designed T-shirt contest, selecting a blueprint with the slogan “CRUSHstacean Nation” that was submitted by Stephen Spratley of Fleming Island, Fla. Spratley’s design will be on the shirts given away to the first 2,000 fans courtesy of 121 Financial Credit Union and Atlantic Self Storage at the Jumbo Shrimp’s first Saturday home game on Saturday, April 18.

 

Among a set of four finalists in a Facebook fan vote, Spratley’s “CRUSHstacean Nation” design garnered more than 57 percent of the nearly 1,100 votes.

 

“The CRUSHstacean Nation idea came to me pretty quickly,” Spratley said. “I knew that the illustration had to tell a story to make it all work. I then created custom word art that mirrors the styling of the actual logo so it looked more professional.”

 

As the winner, Spratley, who has been attending games in Jacksonville since he was a kid in the mid-1980s, will receive 10 tickets to the April 18 game, 15 of the winning shirts and a ceremonial first pitch that evening.

 

In total, the Jumbo Shrimp received more than 100 fan-submitted designs for the contest. Go Jumbo or Go Home by Will Jordan (23 percent), There’s No Place Like Home by Megan Quimby (14 percent) and It’s a Household Name by Leilani Siplon (six percent) rounded out the other finalists.

 

“We had many exceptional submissions from fans of Crustacean Nation, who impressed us with some creative designs,” said Jumbo Shrimp executive vice president/general manager Harold Craw. “We cannot wait to open the gates for our April 15 home opener, and then a few days later give away this fantastic T-shirt submitted by Stephen on our first Saturday home game.”
