It's Gotham on ice as hockey teams celebrate Batman

When the Toledo Walleye and the Evansville IceMen next face off, it'll be in a battle for Gotham City.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, Toledo's East Coast Hockey League team is holding a "Heroes Night" celebration Nov. 22 that will see its players don a limited-edition Batman jersey reminiscent of the classic '60s TV costume. Not to be outdone, the visiting IceMen will dress as The Riddler (sure, Mr. Freeze might've been the better choice, but might not have translated as well visually).

The jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds going to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, March of Dimes and the Walleye Wishing Well. A limited number of replica Batman jerseys will be available beginning Nov. 3 at the Walleye's store.

Holy awesome jerseys, #Batman! The #Walleye and visiting #IceMen will wear these sweaters on 11/22.
