MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The Memphis Redbirds and Memphis Grizzlies have partnered for Grizzlies Night at AutoZone Park on Thursday, Aug. 22. Game time is 7:05, and gates open at 6:00.
That night, the Redbirds will be wearing special jerseys themed after the Grizzlies' brand-new 25th season throwback uniforms celebrating that era of the franchise. The jerseys will be auctioned during the game with proceeds benefiting both the Redbirds Community Fund and the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation. There will also be Grizzlies entertainment in the Plaza before the game.
"Grizzlies Night is always one of the highlights on our schedule," Redbirds President Craig Unger said. "This year, it fits perfectly on a 'Throwback Thursday' at AutoZone Park, as we'll pay tribute to the Grizzlies' 25th season with these unique teal jerseys modeled after their new throwback uniforms."
Fans can purchase a ticket package that includes a ticket to Grizzlies Night, a ticket to the Grizzlies 2019-20 home opener, and a ticket to the Triple-A National Championship Game at AutoZone Park on Sept. 17.
