March 1, 2017 6:42 PM ET

ROUND ROCK, Texas - Dell Diamond is the place to be this summer as the Round Rock Express take the field for their 18th season. In conjunction with single game tickets going on sale, the team announced its jam-packed promotions, concerts and events schedule Wednesday morning.

Each night of the 2017 season will feature a different promotion. The week kicks off with H-E-B Kids Day every Sunday, complete with pregame events outside the stadium, postgame run the bases and special giveaways on select games for kids in attendance. Mondays are $1 hot dog and soda nights, presented by Mrs Baird's. Thanks to M/I Homes, fans receive half-priced tickets during every Tuesday home game (excludes July 4th game, Intel Club seating, Premium Seating Powered by Dell, 4Topps and Rockers).

Feeling lucky? Wednesdays are your chance to cash in with Winning Wednesdays, presented by the Texas Lottery. Plus, help us Strike Out Hunger with the Central Texas Food Bank every Wednesday night by bringing two H-E-B branded canned goods in exchange for a general admission ticket.

Fans will want to come to the ballpark thirsty Thursday nights to take full advantage of the Original Thirsty Thursday, presented by Firetrol Protection Systems. Enjoy discounted beer specials and $1 sodas all summer long. Bud Light Friday Fireworks are back again in 2017. With a special musical theme each week, fans will want to stay in their seats after the game to enjoy the shows. Finally, Saturdays at the Ballpark, presented by A+ Federal Credit Union, will feature special giveaways and postgame concerts throughout the year.

Opening Day festivities begin on Thursday, April 6 with postgame fireworks and a 2017 schedule magnet giveaway, presented by Budweiser. After more postgame fireworks on Friday, April 7, Bob Schneider takes the stage for the first installment of the St. David's Summer Concert Series, presented by Dell on Saturday, April 8. Saturday's contest also features an Express cap giveaway, thanks to the Nyle Maxwell Family of Dealerships.

Schneider will pass the reins to The Spazmatics, who will perform four different shows throughout the summer to round out the St. David's Summer Concert Series, presented by Dell. The group's first performance of the summer is May 20. The Spazmatics will return on June 17 before their third show of the year on July 8. Finally, the group will cap off 80s Night on August 19 with their final performance of the season. The complete St. David's Summer Concert Series, presented by Dell lineup can be found here.

As always, the 2017 slate is loaded with giveaways. After the Opening Weekend festivities, fans can take home a replica of the iconic Round Rock Water Tower on April 22, courtesy of Dell. The 18th annual Nolan Ryan bobblehead giveaway, presented by Whataburger, is set for May 6 and will immortalize the fireballer's fourth no-hitter. Speaking of bobbleheads, the Texas Legends bobblehead series continues August 5 as Earl Campbell joins the likes of George Strait and Willie Nelson in the series. The iconic Express-themed Campbell bobblehead is sponsored by the Sanders Family.

Other giveaways include a Father's Day grilling apron, presented by RockSports, on June 18, a reusable grocery bag, thanks to H-E-B, on July 8, and a kids backpack, courtesy of A+ Federal Credit Union, on August 6. Click here for a complete list of giveaways.

Fans are encouraged to come decked out in their favorite costumes for Star Wars Night on May 4, Princess Night on June 19, Superhero Night on July 17 and Harry Potter Night on July 31.

Cancer Awareness Night, presented by Texas Oncology, returns on May 8 while the annual Military Appreciation Night game is slated for May 22. As always, the Express will celebrate the Fourth of July with an Independence Day Celebration, complete with a spectacular postgame fireworks show.

Other theme games include What Could Have Been Weekend from June 1-3 as the team transforms into the Round Rock Jackalopes to examine what the franchise would look like had "Express" not been chosen as the team's moniker. Special Jackalopes uniforms, thanks to DR Horton, will be auctioned following the game on June 3. Fauxback Weekend will feature retro throwback uniforms, presented by DR Horton, from August 4-5 with a jersey auction at the end of the series.
