The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs Minor League Baseball Team Will Not Be Giving Away Hermit Crabs At Their Opening Game - Auctioning Off Special Jerseys to Benefit the Herman Crab Association


 Waldorf, Maryland - A Waldorf minor league baseball team is abandoning a plan to give away 1,000 live hermit crabs on Opening Day.

After announcing the plan, the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs received thousands of emails, calls and posts on social media-- both for and against the promotion.

In response, the team says it will change its name to the "Southern Maryland Hermit Crabs" for Opening Day, which is April 24.

Players will wear special jerseys that day, which will be auctioned off to benefit the Hermit Crab Association. Members from that organization will be invited to throw out the first pitch.

Hermit crab activists will also be given the chance to speak to fans attending the game.
