On Friday, May 15, Oscar Nunez  (Oscar Martinez from The Office) makes an appearance for An American Workplace Night (A Tribute to The Office) and Donny Most (Ralph Malph from Happy Days) certainly has "still got it" for Perfectamundo Night (A Tribute to Happy Days) on Friday, May 29.
A pair more will stop through in June! Chase from Paw Patrol will be a tail-waggin' good time for kids with Nickelodeon Paw Patrol Day on Sunday, June 14 and George Wendt(Norm Peterson from Cheers) will raise a cold one on Saturday, June 27 for Cheers to Cheers Night.
It does not get much better than July, when four - yes, four - celebrities will appear at the ballpark!

Peterman from Seinfeld) drops by for A Night About Nothing (A Tribute to Seinfeld) on Saturday, July 18.
Scott Schwartz, who famously had his tongue stuck to a pole as the character Flick in the movie A Christmas Story, will be on hand for A Christmas Story in July Night on Saturday, July 25. Jason Hervey (older brother Wayne Arnold from The Wonder Years) will then recall life in the suburbs for Anytown, USA Night (A Throwback to The Wonder Years) on Friday, July 31, to conclude a fantastic month in Frisco.
Last, but certainly not least, Dave Coulier (Joey from Full House) will tell you to "Cut. It. Out." when he appears on Saturday, August 8 for A Really Full House Night, reprising his appearance at Dr Pepper Ballpark in 2015, which drew a crowd of nearly 12,000 fans.
While this season is full of fun, exciting theme nights, A Christmas Story in July Night on Saturday, July 25 will be one you do not want to miss.

About the RoughRiders 
The Frisco RoughRiders are the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers and play their games at beautiful Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, Texas. The team was founded in 2003 and has finished first among all Double-A franchises in attendance in each of the last 15 seasons (2005-2019). In August 2014, the RoughRiders were purchased by an ownership group led by Chuck Greenberg. Since then, the new ownership group, together with the City of Frisco, has spearheaded numerous major franchise enhancements, investing over $8 million in a wide array of facility upgrades and improvements, including a state-of-the-art HD video board, sound system, Bull Moose Saloon, InTouch Grille, Riders Outpost Team Store and the world's largest water feature in a sports facility, the massive Lazy River. These enhancements earned the Riders and the City of Frisco Ballpark Digest's prestigious "Best Ballpark Renovation" award for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016). More than 160 former RoughRiders players have gone on to play Major League Baseball, including current Rangers players Elvis Andrus and Joey Gallo.
