The Name

The organization wanted to give a 'tip of the cap' to Springdale, and Northwest Arkansas', poultry heritage. The poultry industry is very important to our region and the debut of the Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens is a way to show our support and give our fans a fun twist on a pair of weekend home games against the Double-A Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Growl

All chickens can make a growling noise, usually when disturbed or to protect their nest. The Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens will likely let out this warning sound as we defend our home 'nest' at Arvest Ballpark with ferocity.

The Look

The Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens will feature a look not seen before at Arvest Ballpark. The centerpiece of the new uniforms are the two-toned cap that has a gold crown with a scarlet visor and buttons along with radiant red eyelets featuring the Growlin' Chickens logo. The jerseys the Growlin' Chickens will sport are red with gold pinstripes and feature the 'Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens' wordmark logo across the chest with the Growlin' Chickens logo following the text.

The Food

The Growlin' Chicken Sandwich featuring a crispy Chicken Breast sandwiched between two slices of Brioche French Toast, which is served with Pancake Syrup will be available for fans at Arvest Ballpark on Friday, August 9th and Saturday, August 10th.
