The first-place Altoona Curve return to Peoples Natural Gas Field this weekend to begin a seven-game homestand against the Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, and the Portland Sea Dogs, Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

The homestand kicks off with the Josh Bell "I Gotta Have More Cow-Bell" bobblehead giveaway for the first 1,500 fans, presented by Nuts for You, on Friday night as part of Tribute to WIll Ferrell Night. There will be on-field games and more themed around the popular actor. The giveaway features former Altoona Curve outfielder/first baseman Josh Bell (2014-15) dressed up as Ferrell in the famous Saturday Night Live sketch from 2000.
