- The Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the 2012 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, complete a week-long unveiling of their 2013 Promotional Calendar
with the announcement of nightly promotions for the 2013 season.
As part of their franchise-record 24 Fireworks Extravaganzas package, the team will feature a Fireworks series on two separate days of the week. The highly-popular Thursday Night Fireworks Series returns and is joined by the Saturday Night Fireworks Series. Fireworks will occur following each of the Squirrels' Thursday home games and 10 of 11 Saturday games. The lone Saturday exception will feature the Human Cannonball launch on May 18th.
The Squirrels will once again partner with McDonald's for McDonald's Mondays during the 2013 season. Fans will received two tickets for the price of one for any Monday home game with a valid receipt from McDonald's. Also on Monday, for the first time ever, the team will host Dollar Dog Mondays. Hot Dogs will be just one dollar at The Diamond for every Monday home game.
Coupled with the Kroger Squirrel Tails Kids Club, the team unveils Kids Eat FREE Sundays. In addition to receiving a free ticket to Sunday games at The Diamond, Squirrel Tails members will also receive a free meal during Sunday home games. The team has also announced that all Sunday home games will feature a 2:05 PM first pitch, rather than switching to a 5:05 PM start as they have done in years past.
"We really wanted to beef up - no pun intended - our early week games this year," said Todd "Parney" Parnell. "Dollar dog night will definitely help us do that." "Sundays have always been for the kids at The Diamond, and we really wanted to ramp up the incentives to make sure that remains the most exuberant day of the week at the ballpark."
