LAKEWOOD, N.J. (WPVI) -- If you're a cat lover, you now have a professional baseball team to root for.

The Lakewood BlueClaws, the Single-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, will be wearing jerseys covered with cats during their Saturday game - rather, their CATurday game.

And this promotion is being done for a good cause. The jerseys will be auctioned off for charity.

Fans are also being encouraged to bring their cats to the game (with a $2 Paw Pass).

And there will be "a special rendition of Take MEOW Out to the Ballgame," according to the press release.

SAVE Rescue Shelter of Toms River will be at the game as well. They will be collecting donations of products for a cat supply drive and they will have cats for adoption.
