The club also has a lineup of theme nights ranging from the World’s Largest Ball Pit (April 10), featuring hundreds of beach balls being dumped into the seating bowl from the Haskell Suite Level, Dive Bar Night (April 21), when 121 Financial Ballpark will transform into a dive bar complete with dueling pianos, Best Seat Over The House (April 22), with lucky fans getting to take in an inning of baseball from a hot air balloon, Fanscaping! With the North Florida Bonsai Club (May 19), which allows six lucky fans to style their own bonsai tree, The London Game (June 10), when the Jumbo Shrimp will play one home game as if it were in London and Cathartic Scream Night (June 24), when, prior to the Seventh Inning Stretch, the entire ballpark will let out one giant cathartic scream to let out whatever frustrations may have bubbled up inside over the past several years.
