JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The 2019 Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp season presented by Community First Credit Union continues at 7:05 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 from the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.

Thirsty Thursday presented by Budweiser: Fans can purchase $1 12 oz. and $2 24 oz.

DJ Swagg and DJ MoneyGud from Power 106.1 will also provide music at the Budweiser Tiki Terrace.

Wonderlic Night presented by Eldon F. Wonderlic and the owl from the Tootsie Pop commercial: The Wonderlic test, used to evaluate NFL Draft prospects, consists of 50 multiple choice questions that have to be answered in 15 minutes. The test sounds really boring, so the Jumbo Shrimp are just going to blindfold people and have them lick stuff on the field instead.
