“All Kid Captains will receive a commemorative jersey, special recognition from UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes, and an invitation to a special behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium on Saturday, August 12,” a hospital release said.
The Hawkeyes will spotlight one kid captain each game week, including the postseason.
