A different player spotlight will be selected for each home game. Line-Up cards featuring the player spotlight will be available for $2 at the game that night. Each player will be in the upper lobby following the game to sign autographs. Fans will also have the chance to bid in a blind silent auction on a replica jersey for each spotlight at the program stand up until the end of the second intermission of each game.
