Gates open at 4pm and the first pitch is at 5:05pm.  We have 90 minutes of a hot dog, duh, and hamburger buffet that starts with the first pitch!  Family friendly so bring the kids and watch them Chase the Roach around the bases at the end of the fifth inning.  Kazoo will also be stopping by the party deck to hang out with us during the game.

For the adults there are two “watering fountains” attached to the deck for your adult beverage needs.
