Saturday night come out to see BirdZerk! BirdZerk is “America’s Ballpark Prankster,” and a true entertainment whirlybird, with more tricks up his feathers than Houdini.
Spontaneous, outrageous, cool and unpredictable, he plays to the crowd with comedic routines honed through hundreds of appearances at ballparks and arenas around the world.
Whether BirdZerk! is pulling off hijinks with the players and coaches, harassing the umpires and officials, or funnin' with the crowd, the lovable jokester’s zany antics always leave them laughing and begging for more. But he is rarely alone, as BirdZerk! often travels with his hilarious sidekicks BabyZerk!, DogZerk!, Zerk! Jr., and BallZerk!. This is a can’t miss night!
Thirst Inning is back again - $2 Bud Light, Budweiser, and Michelob Ultras during the first inning at the Budweiser Beer Carts on the concourse at first and third base.
