When someone hears the name "Louisville," there are typically two major things that come to mind... bourbon & horse-racing. We're paying tribute to both when we take the field rebranded as the Derby City Mint Juleps. Join us at Louisville Slugger Field on two special dates in April 2019 as we celebrate the city we all love and call our home!
The Mint Juleps logo is vibrant, fun, and friendly—a perfect representation of Louisvillians during Derby season. The nickname "Derby City" is widely used to describe Louisville, making it the perfect pairing with Mint Juleps, Louisville's specialty bourbon drink.
The Juleps color scheme celebrates the festivities that have taken place every May in Louisville since 1875. Two shades of mint are complemented with hot pink and purple and rounded out with gold accents and a silver julep cup.
Argyle sleeves on the jersey pay homage to jockey silks—a stand-out visual of horse racing. From head to toe, everything comes together with a two-toned mint and purple cap featuring the Mint Julep mascot.
Proceeds from the Derby City Mint Juleps jersey auction will benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The jersey auction will start on May 1 at 10:00 AM and end on May 15 at 10:00 PM.
The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity providing financial assistance to 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries. Founded in 2006, the PDJF has disbursed approximately $10 million dollars to permanently disabled jockeys, most of whom have sustained paralysis or traumatic brain injuries. The Fund receives no guaranteed funding from within the horse racing industry and appreciates the support of individuals and organizations to assist these brave men and women.
