FRESNO, CA - The Fresno Grizzlies will welcome Alfonso Ribeiro to Chukchansi Park on Thursday, May 20th for Mad Tight 90s Night: THE REMIX. Ribeiro, who played the character Carlton Banks opposite Will Smith on the immensely popular television show The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, sign autographs, take photos with fans and participate in various on-field entertainment throughout the game.

The Grizzlies' signature decade-themed night, featuring a seminal pop culture icon, has become one of the most anticipated events on the promotional calendar over the last few seasons. Building upon the popularity of last year's Mad Tight '90s Night, featuring Dennis "Mr. Belding" Haskins, the Grizzlies are pleased this year to welcome Ribeiro, perhaps the most recognizable celebrity to visit Chukchansi Park. Fans are encouraged to break out their most stylin' 90s fashions and enjoy a full night of '90s music and themed in-game entertainment, as Chukchansi Park will be transported back to the decade when grunge and hip hop became mainstream and the "Rachel" hairstyle reigned supreme. The evening will also include a performance by Minor League Baseball's premier, infield-dragging dance crew, the Drag Kings, presented by Tickets.com.

As with every Thursday home game, May 20th will also be a Thirsty Thursday, presented by Tecate, featuring $1 12-ounce Tecate and Tecate Light beers through the end of the fifth inning and $1 12-ounce sodas all night long. Gates and taps will open at 6:05pm for the 7:05pm game.

The first-place Fresno Grizzlies return home on Thursday, May 20th for an eight game homestand against Nashville and Memphis. To get your tickets for Mad Tight 90s Night: THE REMIX and the rest of the homestand, visit the Chukchansi Park Box Office, go online to www.fresnogrizzlies.com or call 559.320.TIXS.
