The Tri-City Dust Devils and the Northwest League have released the schedule for the 2012 season. Opening Night at Gesa Stadium will be Friday, June 15th versus the Everett AquaSox. The Dust Devils will wrap up their 38-game home schedule on Sunday, August 26th vs. Eugene, and will finish the regular season on the road at Salem-Keizer on September 1st. The first half of the regular season will conclude on July 23rd. Tri-City clinched a playoff berth in 2011 by winning the East Division first half championship.
The Dust Devils will look to set a single-season attendance record for the sixth consecutive year in 2012. A total of 85,953 fans visited Gesa Stadium in 2011, and a single-game record of 3,811 was set on the season finale.
"We are excited about our 2012 schedule and look forward to another summer full of great promotions at Gesa Stadium and setting an attendance record for the sixth straight year," says Vice President/General Manager Derrel Ebert.
Fireworks will once again follow the season opener, season finale, July 3rd, and every Saturday game during the season. A full promotional schedule will be released in the spring.
Fans are once again encouraged to secure their seats early by purchasing a ticket package. Mini plans of 7, 14, or 21 games feature all the biggest nights at Gesa Stadium, including all Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night games. Reserved ticket package prices are unchanged from the 2011 season.
Ticket plans start at just $49, with full-season tickets available for as low as $259. Special ticket rates are available for groups of 20 or more. Season tickets, mini-plans, and group tickets can be purchased by contacting the Dust Devils front office at (509) 544-8789 or at the Gesa Stadium box office.
