With the recent announcement of the Dead & Company concert at Autzen Stadium on Saturday, June 30th, 2018, the Eugene Emeralds will move their originally scheduled game against the Everett Aquasox from June 30th to Sunday, July 1st, as part of a scheduled doubleheader with first pitch at 4:05pm at PK Park.
After discussions between the Emeralds and University of Oregon officials, both parties determined this would be the best course of action. Both games in the scheduled doubleheader will be 7 innings in length instead of the traditional 9 innings, as per Minor League Baseball rules, with a short break between both games.
The doubleheader at PK Park will feature our annual Grateful Dead themed celebration with music, a giveaway and more! Stay connected with the Ems on social media or check out our promotions page for up-to-date information on the night.
The Northwest League season kicks off at PK Park on Friday, June 15th, as the Ems will open up with a 5-game homestand against the Vancouver Canadians in a rematch of last year's Northwest League Championship Series. The Ems will attempt to secure a third straight NWL Finals berth in 2018, a feat never before accomplished in franchise history.
