Lots of exciting events at Silver Cross Field in 2012…
(Joliet, IL) – The Joliet Slammers Professional Baseball team plays 48 home games in 2012 and every single one of them will have fun promotions for fans to enjoy at the ballpark.
It all starts Opening Night on Tuesday, May 22 as the organization honors their 2011 Frontier League championship season with a ring ceremony before the game. First pitch that night is at 7:05 p.m. and fireworks are planned for after the game. The Slammers will be giving out magnet schedules courtesy of Green River Lines on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of opening week.
Just like 2011, fans will be treated to a spectacular fireworks show after every Friday home game. A total of 14 fireworks nights are planned.
The Slammers will be welcoming a number of entertainment acts to the yard this season. On Saturday, May 26, Myron Noodleman, the hippest nerd in da biz, comes to town. Then on Friday, July 6, it will be a frightfully fun night at the yard as Chicago television icon Svengoolie comes to Silver Cross Field thanks to Me-TV. The ZOOperstars visit on Saturday, August 18 and Quick Change performs on Saturday, August 25. On Thursday, August 9, the Slammers will welcome the band “Maggie Speaks” to the yard for the second straight season.
Fun giveaways are planned all season long, including a Frontier Cup replica trophy on Saturday, July 7 and a J.L. Bird bobblehead on Saturday, July 28. On Tuesday, August 7, the Slammers are giving away a gnome of their lovable mascot Spikes courtesy of the Will County Health Department’s “Get the Lead Out” campaign.
This season is also highlighted by not one, but two “Bark in the Park” days! On Sunday, May 27, and Sunday, August 19, bring your pup to the yard and enjoy some baseball. Tickets on the grass berms cost $5 and there’s no extra cost for your dog! The first “Bark in the Park” is brought to you by Joliet Animal Control and the second “Bark in the Park” is brought to you by Blackbird’s Bowl: Natural Pet Foods & More.
Fans that enjoy classic cars will get their kicks at Route 66 Night at Silver Cross Field on Sunday, June 17. There will be a classic car show before the game and the evening is brought to you by Greg’s Body Shop.
