SPRINGDALE, AR - Not only has Naturals' General Manager Eric Edelstein extended the customary Tuesday night ticket promotion, where Arvest customers can receive buy one, get one free reserved tickets at the window, the Naturals' GM has made a guarantee for this evening's game as the Naturals chase a couple of franchise marks.

Edelstein has guaranteed that the Naturals and Corpus Christi Hooks will play a one run game this evening. If they did, it'd be the sixth consecutive game this season that the Naturals have found themselves in a ballgame with a one-run margin. That hasn't ever happened in the three-plus season history of the Naturals.

If the game is decided by more than a run, all fans who attend tonights game may retain their ticket stub and exchange it for a complimentary general admission ticket to see the Naturals face their division rival Arkansas Travelers on Easter Sunday (April 24th).

"We had such a great start to the season (over the weekend)," said Edelstein. "And with the team playing so well, it would be nice to send them off on their first road trip with a nice crowd this evening as we strive to play another close ballgame here at Arvest Ballpark."

With a win tonight, the Naturals will start the 2011 season 5-1, which would be their best start in franchise history. Last season, the team began 4-2.

Normally on Tuesdays, as part of Arvest Customer Appreciation Night, Arvest customers can present a card, bill, or other means to receive a buy one, get one free reserved ticket deal at the ticket window. In celebration of the team's great start, ALL FANS can utilize this discount at the ticket window just by asking for it.

This evening is also the debut of the new Procter and Gamble Family Four Pack offer, which includes four reserved tickets, four hamburger or cheeseburger combos (including chips/soft drink), a program, and scorecard for $46. The same package is offered for all Tuesday and Wednesday night games for $36 in advance and $46 on gameday.
