Van Heusen Ad
  • Sparkee received his name in a contest run throughout Central New Jersey to name the mascot before the 1998 season began.
  • Sparkee was named after then Patriots manager and New York Yankees legend Sparky Lyle.
  • When he isn't at the ballpark, Sparkee is seen throughout the community at special events, fundraisers, and anywhere he is requested by his friends in the area.

  • Slider made his debut at the May 18, 2007 game at TD Bank Ballpark.
  • Slider is a fixture at all Somerset Patriots games, and like his pal Sparkee, has become a part of the community.
  • Slider appears at events all year long to help important causes and make events special for fans.
