Baseball season in Lynchburg kicks off in a big way with a special Opening Night extravaganza at City Stadium on Monday, April 13th.

The Hillcats will distribute giveaways to fans on every Friday home game from June-September, with Bobbleheads, t-shirts, and hats being just a few of the unique items fans can receive. A one of a kind throwback Lynchburg Shoemakers Bobblehead will honor the original Lynchburg baseball namesake, while a Baby Southpaw Bobblehead and a Hula Southpaw Bobblehead will also be available as a giveaway.

The first Friday of the season the Hillcats celebrate the much anticipated Bark in the Park Night. Lynchburg will also host the 12th annual Autism Awareness night and the 14th annual Swing For the Cure Night.

Star Wars Night will also showcase specialty jerseys, along with a '434' uniform in honor of Lynchburg and the surrounding community that the Hillcats call home. 
Lynchburg will host the Carolina League All-Star game on June 23rd, marking the first time the Hillcats have hosted the event since 1995.
