SYRACUSE, NY – The Syracuse Chiefs will take the field as the “Devices” for the game on Thursday, May 31st at NBT Bank Stadium. The “Devices” name is a tribute to the Brannock Device®, which was invented in Syracuse, NY.

Jerseys will be auctioned off to raise money for Operation Walk during and after the game. The players will also wear specialty “Devices” baseball caps on the field that night. “Devices” caps and t-shirts will be available for sale in the Whistlestop Souvenir Store and online at “Devices” t-shirts and adjustable caps are on sale now, fitted on-field caps will go on sale Thursday, May 31st.  

 “Devices” apparel and caps will feature a brand new logo, named Chuck. Chuck, is a Brannock Device® named after his creator, Charles F. Brannock.

“Becoming the ‘Devices’ for one night helps us introduce Central New York to the rest of the world,” said Jason Smorol, general manager. “This is the kind of fun, unique, interactive promotion that only happens in Chiefsville!”
