Memphis Red Sox Night

Saturday, August 10, 2024

On Saturday, August 10, the Redbirds will honor and celebrate Memphis's longest-lasting Negro League team as a part of MLB's initiative: The Nine. The team will play as the Black-owned Memphis Red Sox, one of the founding members of the Negro American League. Learn more about the Memphis Red Sox history down below!

The first 1,500 fans to enter the ballpark will receive a Memphis Red Sox 20 oz. tumbler for FREE! Immediately after the game ends, we will have a postgame fireworks show shot off from centerfield!

“The Nine” is a Black-community focused outreach platform specifically designed to honor and celebrate the historic impact numerous Black baseball pioneers made on the sport, provide new opportunities for youth baseball and softball participation, further diversify the business of baseball and embrace millions of passionate fans throughout Minor League Baseball's 120 communities nationwide.
