Fireworks on Friday & Growlin' Chicken Bobblehead Giveaway on Saturday

The Name

A 'tip of the cap' to Springdale, and Northwest Arkansas', poultry heritage. The poultry industry is very important to our region and the debut of the Growlin' Chickens is a way to show our support and hope our fans enjoy the fun twist we put on the weekend.

The Growl

All chickens can make a growling noise, usually when disturbed or to protect their nest. The Growlin' Chickens will likely let out this warning sound as we defend our home 'nest' at Arvest Ballpark with ferocity. #LETSGROWL  

The Look

The Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens will feature a look not seen before at Arvest Ballpark.

The centerpiece of the new uniforms are the two-toned cap that has a gold crown with scarlet visor and buttons with radiant red eyelets featuring the Growlin' Chickens logo. 

The jerseys the Growlin' Chickens will sport are red with gold pinstripes and feature the 'Northwest Arkansas Growlin' Chickens' wordmark logo across the chest with the Growlin' Chickens logo following the text. 

Growllin' Chickens merchandise will be available online and at the Naturals Team Store.

The Food

Introducing... the Growlin' Chicken Sandwich.

Fans attending the games on Friday, August 9th and Saturday, August 10th can enjoy a delicious new sandwich at Arvest Ballpark. The Growlin' Chicken Sandwich features a crispy Chicken Breast sandwiched between two slices of Brioche French Toast. This tasty creation is served with Pancake syrup, which pulls it all together. Enjoy!
