As fake as the naming-rights announcement may have been, Cards Against Humanity did provide the Slammers lots of publicity and gave followers of the promotional campaign vouchers that can be used to attend games in the 2018 season.
Interest has brewing since a banner was hung at the stadium's front gate on Dec. 5 with the words "The Cards Against Humanity Baseball Place."
Semaca said he's excited about the publicity and believes it will generate interest in the team and new visitors to downtown Joliet.
"We realize that there are some people who find these guys a little edgy, but we believe the publicity in the end is going to be very positive," he said. "We're trying to have a little bit of fun."
An email from Jenn Bane at Cards Against Humanity suggested more is coming at the Joliet stadium.
"We're excited to partner with the Joliet Slammers for the 2018 season," Bane said. "Although as a company we just recently learned the rules of baseball, we love the Slammers and wanted to give the team a boost for their upcoming season. We're based in Chicago ourselves. Go Slammers."
