In honor of Korean Heritage Night, the iconic Montgomery Biscuits will swap their usual jerseys and don the orange and green, becoming the Montgomery Kimchi for their game on Friday, July 16 vs. The Biloxi Shuckers at 6:35 PM.
What is Kimchi?
Kimchi (pronounced “kim – CHEE”) is a traditional Korean dish made of fermented vegetables, often served as a side dish but tasty enough to be enjoyed on its own! While the seasonings and vegetables can vary, popular renditions include shredded cabbage, radish, garlic and fish sauce.
Akin to warm, buttery biscuits on any good southerner’s table, kimchi is a staple in Korean cuisine. The Biscuits believe food is “the gateway into culture,” and have made the switch to honor Korean Heritage Night. They’ve partnered with A-KEEP, The Alabama-Korean Education and Economic Partnership to implement elements of Korean culture throughout the game, in addition to the new uniforms and name change.
Founded on the values of diversity, equity and inclusiveness, A-KEEP provides education programs to students and professionals in both Alabama and Korea, with an emphasis on multicultural diversity. They also work as a liaison between businesses and institutions in Korea and Alabama. Their goal is to help bridge cultural differences and encourage students, corporations and professionals to seize the great opportunities between the two regions.
Specialty on-field jerseys will be auctioned off during the game, with all proceeds benefiting A-KEEP.
We are big fans of the Biscuits, and shared their full 2021 promo schedule earlier this year.
