ROUND ROCK, Texas - After a week-long roadtrip to the Midwest, the Round Rock Express return to Dell Diamond on Tuesday, April 18 to open an eight-game homestand. The Omaha Storm Chasers (Kanas City Royals affiliate) start things off with a mid-week series, then the Iowa Cubs (Chicago Cubs affiliate) make their first appearance of the season in Round Rock.

Wednesday, April 19 is the annual Education Day at Dell Diamond, featuring a special 11:35 a.m. first pitch complete with pregame demonstrations from KXAN meteorologist Rosie Newberry, the Austin Zoo and several Express players. The early first pitch is a perfect opportunity for school field trips or a long lunch break!

90s Night slides back to Round Rock on Friday, April 21. We'll celebrate the decade that was the 1990s with a totally tubular theme night, capped off with Bud Light Friday Fireworks set to your favorite 90s tunes. Saturday's series opener against Iowa features a replica Round Rock water tower giveaway for the first 2,500 fans, courtesy of Dell. Fans can show their Round Rock pride at home or at the office with a replica of the city's iconic water tower.

Finally, the game is going to the dogs once again on Sunday, April 23 for the second and final installment of Bark in the Park, presented by Action Pack Dog Center. Fans can use promo code "BARK" when purchasing tickets online to receive special ticket pricing that includes an exclusive Express PrideBites chew toy.

In addition, the We Are Baseball Hall of Fame Tour will be on site from April 20-29. The cutting-edge baseball and technology exhibit features virtual reality experiences, an original IMAX movie and specially curated artifacts from The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY. The exhibit, which will be staged in Dell Diamond's west parking lot, will be open daily from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tickets are available through HallofFameTour.com.
