INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Indians take the field for their home opener Thursday night at victory field.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard will be throwing out the first pitch.
The Indians start their year against a familiar foe, the Columbus clippers. First Pitch is at 7:05 p.m., gates open at 5:30 p.m.
"We want victory field to be a place that everyone can enjoy whether your a baseball fan or you just want to spend time outside with your family," said Amanda Bray, senior marketing and communications manager for the Indianapolis Indians. "We want a number of things going on that makes the experience enjoyable for everyone."
Dollar Mondays will return – five concession stand items will cost $1 and 2 for 1 Tuesdays throughout the entire season. You can visit any Central Indiana McAllisters Deli location and pick up a voucher for 2 for 1 admission to any Tuesdays game.
Thursday is value night - a hot dog, a ticket, a T-shirt and unlimited soda for $20. Starting in May, every Friday night game will be followed by a fireworks show.
Signature Saturdays will also be offered - autograph sessions and entertainment segments every Saturday night, which include some former Major League baseball players like Ozzie smith and Lou Brock.
"I think we have a lot of successes to build on," Bray said. "We had one of our best seasons at the gate in a number of years and our team on the field had the most wins in all of minor league baseball. So we're really looking forward to having some our players from last year back on the field as well as some new talent coming up from our Altoona club."
