The Teddy Bear Toss is our favorite minor league promotion ever, and while many teams now hold a Toss Night every season, the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors put a twist on that theme.
The Condors lost to the Alaska Aces on Sunday 6-4, but the bigger happening was that it was “Undie Sunday.” Like the Teddy Bear Toss, when the Condors scored their first goal of the game, fans tossed various undergarments to the ice in celebration.
When Sebastien Sylvestre made it 1-0 for the home side at 7:26 of the first period, Condors fans went to work:
Here’s what the aftermath looked like from ice level:
In the end, 7,670 undergarments rained down to the ice inside Rabobank Arena, according to the team. That broke last year’s total, which ended up around 6,000 pieces of underwear.
The brand new “bras, underwear, t-shirts, socks, boxers, diapers, etc,” as the Condors asked for, will be donated to several local non-profits in the Bakersfield area.
