RubberDucks to become Devil Strips on July 7
The Akron RubberDucks will rebrand to the Akron Devil Strips for one-night only on Friday, July 7 as a homage to the colloquial name for tree lawns in Akron.
A devil strip refers to the grassy area between the street and the sidewalk. The term is believed to be first used in Northeast Ohio to describe the area between streetcars going in opposite directions. The current use of the term was first used in Akron in the late 1920s.
