BRICK – There is bound to be some fun and laughs when Lakewood BlueClaws mascot Buster or  OCL’s mascot Sparks are around but when the two come together, look out.

The two mascots teamed up on the morning of March 1 at the Brick Branch of the Ocean County Library.

Greg Giombarrese, the media and public relations manager of the Lakewood BlueClaws warmed up the family crowd at the library’s meeting room with some facts about the BlueClaws and details about the special event games set for this year’s season of the Minor League baseball team.

Giombarrese who said he also serves as the radio commentator for the team’s games said that this year’s season starts on April 10.

Luke Anger, 6, of Brick was among those who won tickets to the opening game. He was there with his mother Debbie Turner and his 7-year-old sister, Ayla Turner. The family is big BlueClaws fans and enjoyed meeting Giombarrese, Buster and Sparks.

“This is our 14th season and we have a large number of fans. We’ll be hitting another milestone with six million fans in August,’’ Giombarrese said during the program.

Nolan Alvariez was a bit shy when he met Sparks. The 17-month-old township resident clung to his father as Sparks waved to him but before long he gave OCL’s magenta dragon a big smile.

Branch staff reported that 64 people registered for the program.

The pairing of the two mascots is an annual event at the township library and served as a way of promoting both the children’s programs of the library and those of the Lakewood BlueClaws.
