WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (June 3, 2017) - For the second straight season at BB&T Ballpark, the Winston-Salem Dash will wear commemorative Warthogs jerseys during two "Dash of the Past" nights this season. The Warthogs will return to the Triad on Thursday, June 8, and Thursday, June 22, and the Dash and Camel City Goods are teaming up to welcome the Warthogs back to town with a special giveaway to the first 300 fans who purchase a lawn ticket to either of those two games.
Winston-Salem will sport a black jersey with "HOGS" in red on the front, which was one of the Warthogs' home jerseys during that era. In addition, beloved mascot Wally will make his return to BB&T Ballpark for the second year in a row to cheer on Your Home Team.
In conjunction with the "Dash of the Past" nights, the team is offering a special discount of $5 lawn tickets for either game, along with a free Dash felt pennant, courtesy of Camel City Goods. The offer is limited to the first 300 call-in purchases to (336) 714-6891. Those who purchase this package can pick up their tickets and pennants at Camel City Goods, which is located on 1004 Brookstown Avenue in Winston-Salem. Pick-up for both games will begin at noon on June 8. Camel City Goods is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
Otherwise, tickets for both contests will start as low as $8 and are available by calling the Dash at (336) 714-2287 or visiting wsdash.com. Every Thursday game is a Lowes Foods Thirsty Thursday, with select beers available for only $1 through the seventh inning.
Before Winston-Salem became the Dash in 2009, the franchise enjoyed a successful 14-season run as the Warthogs from 1995-2008. During the Warthogs era, Winston-Salem posted a 944-1004 (.485) record and claimed the 2003 Mills Cup, the club's most recent Carolina League championship.
The Warthogs also supplied many talented players for the Chicago White Sox successful run in the 2000s, which included a World Series title in 2005. In all, eight Warthogs went on to become Major League All-Stars, including infielder Aaron Boone, left-hander Gio Gonzalez and outfielders Carlos Lee and Aaron Rowand.
