The Pensacola Pelicans start Spring training tomorrow. Fans will have their first opportunity to purchase single game tickets at the Pre-Season Extravaganza sponsored by Verizon Wireless and Cat Country 98.7. The free event takes place at Pelican Park at UWF from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This is the first official event to kick-off the beginning of the 2008 season. Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets for the expected sell-out games including the four post-game fireworks shows and seven premium giveaway nights.
From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Pelicans coaches and players will be conducting a FREE youth baseball and softball clinic for kids ages 7-12. During the Extravaganza, players will be available for pictures and autographs.
Other activities include “National Anthem” and “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” try-outs, PA announcer try-outs, kids bounce house, Scoop mascot try-outs, Pelicans volunteers, bat boy try-outs, and free food for a limited time. Kids can also register and pick-up their Kids Club t-shirts.
The staple of minor league baseball is the fun and sometimes wild and crazy between-inning promotions. Fans will get a sneak peak at the new Pelicans promotions and even have the chance to practice with the on-field crew as they prepare for opening day.
…..The City of Pensacola has yet to cut the grass at the site of the future ballpark.
