Indianapolis Indians hosting weekend homestand at Victory Field
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Indians are preparing to wrap up their 120th season, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over at Victory Field.
The Indians will host the Toledo Mud Hens on Saturday and Sunday. It’s the team’s final full weekend homestand of the season.
Cheyne Reiter, communications director for the Indians, says one of the highlights is Saturday’s Jurassic Ball(park) Night.
“There’s gonna be dozens of dinosaurs out in the Center Field Plaza, including a 40-foot brontosaurus for kids and families to take photos with. There are some really cool experiences at Victory Field as we wrap up this season. We’re in the midst of a 12-game home stand. Tonight is game four of the 12-game stretch. We wrap up next Sunday, the 24th.”
In addition to Jurassic Ball(park) night, the weekend homestand includes a visit from fairytale royalty for Sunday Characters with fairytale princesses.
