Holy sweater change, Batman!

The Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League will wear some Batman-inspired jerseys for their game Sunday against the Niagra IceDogs as part of the team's "Superhero Day."

The idea is to auction off the game-worn gear with the proceeds going to the NEO Kids Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving children's health in the north.

The jerseys the Wolves will wear are a true throwback, clearly modeled after the old Batman (blue and gray with a yellow utility belt) not the modern "Dark Knight" movie version of the Caped Crusader costume.

Fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite Superhero and there will also be a raffle and T-Shirt sale at the game.
