Wilmington, DE - The 2018 season of Wilmington Blue Rocks baseball will be highlighted by the return of fireworks during every Friday home game, three appearances by the hugely popular Cowboy Monkey Rodeo and a bobblehead series featuring all three of the team's mascots.

As is Blue Rocks tradition, the Wilmington night sky will light up with an expansive fireworks show set to music after every home Friday game during the upcoming year. In addition to the 11 Friday fireworks shows, there will be postgame fireworks after Blue Rocks games on Saturday, May 5 and Tuesday, July 3. Monkeys dressed as cowboys, riding dogs as though they were horses while herding rams will perform on the field with the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo at Frawley Stadium during and after the games on May 4, 5 and June 29.

The Blue Rocks' second annual Bank of America Bobblehead Series, will celebrate the team's cherished mascots. The first 1,000 fans will receive a Rubble bobblehead on Saturday, May 26, a Mr. Celery bobblehead on Saturday, July 14 and a Rocky Bluewinkle bobblehead on Saturday, August 4. For fans that collect all three, the figurines will connect into the shape of the state of Delaware at the base. July 14 will be a day focused on Mr. C, as the Rocks throw their second annual "Celery-bration." On top of the bobblehead giveaway, all fans will receive a stalk of celery and the team will don special Mr. Celery themed uniforms.

On Saturday, August 25 the first 1,000 fans will receive Judy Johnson bobbleheads as we celebrate the Negro League legend and namesake of the Blue Rocks' home field. The club will also celebrate Jackie Robinson Night on April 15, by sporting Brooklyn Dodgers' themed jerseys that all feature Robinson's retired No. 42. Those jerseys will be auctioned off after the game to benefit the Mariano Rivera foundation.

For wrestling fans, Booker T comes to Frawley Stadium to pose for pictures and sign autographs on Thursday, May 31, while sweets lovers will adore the team's Mega Candy Drop from a helicopter after the game on Sunday, April 29. The ballpark will open its doors to man's best friend during five dog-friendly Bark-in-the-Park games, while craft beer aficionados will flock to Frawley Stadium for Beer 30 Thursdays all season long.
