SPRINGDALE, Ark. - The Northwest Arkansas Naturals are excited to team up with Whataburger again on the Field of Dreams program for the 2017 season, which will begin at Arvest Ballpark on Thursday, April 6 at 6:25 p.m. for Opening Day.

The Naturals Field of Dreams program presented by Whataburger is one of the most popular programs offered at Arvest Ballpark and is seen as an integral part of the Naturals baseball experience. The program gives kids a unique game day experience and is offered at all 70 home games. More than 2,200 kids have participated in the program over the past three seasons as the Naturals Field of Dreams program is open to all youth teams, not just baseball, softball and T-ball teams.

Whether it is for a pre-season or post-season party or just an outing during the year, the Naturals invite youth teams from across the region to take part in an action packed day at Arvest Ballpark. Before the Naturals game begins, teams will take an exclusive VIP behind-the-scenes tour of Arvest Ballpark, be introduced on the field, recognized on the HD videoboard and given the opportunity to take the field with their favorite Naturals prior to the game for the National Anthem. Each player will also receive a coupon courtesy of Whataburger that is redeemable at any of their Northwest Arkansas locations.

"We're excited to partner with the Naturals to make it an extra special season for some of our youth teams," said Whataburger Director of Operations Mark Wallace. "There's nothing better than seeing the smiles on all the kids' faces and we're proud to bring the community together for a fun ballpark experience."

The Naturals encourage all coaches, players, family and friends to take advantage of the Field of Dreams program through discounted group tickets and food combos that are offered as part of the experience. The Naturals guarantee that groups will be seated together in the best available section as group rates start as low as $7 for seats within the seating bowl.
