Exciting Things to Come (Blogs from the Boss)
Mark Seaman – General Manager
It might have just snowed, but we are ready to go at L.P. Frans Stadium. It looks like we are headed for a warmer stretch of weather, which I’m sure everyone is ready for, so it’s time to start thinking baseball again. Major League spring training is in full swing with games getting ready to start as I type this. 44 days til our home opener, but we have plenty of activities at the ballpark between now and then. This weekend, Appalachian State is hosting Rider in a battle of 2 undefeated teams, starting with a game on Friday at 3pm followed by games on Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 1pm.
On Saturday, March 13th we have our first annual St. Patrick’s Day party from 11am to 1pm. It’s a free event with plenty of activities for young and old. Individual tickets go on sale that day as well. Then, April 10th is our 3rd annual open house, another free event with plenty of activities.
On April 15th there will be no game (at home), but there will be a Thirsty Thursday at the ballpark. We are hosting the kick-off to the corporate challenge; there will be a band, inflatables for the kids, and of course $1 Pepsi’s and beers. Gates open at 5pm for this free event.
Then, April 16th, the big day, the Crawdads 18th Home Opener. As you can see, we have a number of events planned over the next month and half. We look forward to seeing all of our baseball friends at the ballpark for one or all of the above mentioned events.
