Daytona Tortugas jerseys feature artwork of Guy Harvey


gzoHpNb3What happens when you cross minor league baseball with marine biology? You get tonight’s Daytona Tortugas jerseys, which will feature the artwork of marine conservationist and wildlife artist Guy Harvey.

Harvey, founder of the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, is well known among sports fishermen for his lifelike depictions of marine sport fish, some of which are featured on tonight’s jerseys, along with the team’s namesake, of course, a sea turtle.

Harvey will be on hand for the game, and will autograph jerseys, which are being auctioned off until 9:00 tonight to benefit the Guy Harvey Foundation, which supports education and ocean conservation efforts.

The Daytona Tortugas, High-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, play in the Florida State League.
