Guests signed in on a baseball jersey, and the partyware was printed with baseball, soccer, football and basketball designs. Various congratulatory banners were hung throughout.

The honorees and their guests dressed in various baseball, football and basketball jerseys. Others dressed in the spirit as a referee, a cheerleader and even a professional wrestler and wrestler’s diva.
