Direwolves Defeat Lanniser

The Staten Island Direwolves defeated House Lannister 10-1 in front of a crowd of 7,529 at Richmond County Bank Ballpark on Staten Island. The Direwolves, normally the Staten Island Yankees, changed their name when they approached George R. R. Martin with the request to honor his works for a night of baseball. Martin agreed, but noted that he was unable to root for a team called the Yankees, hence the name change. In addition to baseball, the evening included an appearance by a live arctic wolf, jousting competition, trial by combat against Scooter, a reenactment of the red wedding featuring mascot Red, and swearing in of honorary Night’s Watch induction.
