We're exactly 100 days away from Opening Day so to celebrate we thought we'd give a sneak peek at what the 2018 promotional schedule looks like. Though not yet finalized, the upcoming promotional slate promises to be one of the best in baseball!
All details including appearances and giveaways will be announced throughout the winter and early spring as we approach Opening Day.

Perhaps the marquee night of the entire summer will be August 8 for ROC the ROC Night - a game completely dedicated to celebrating EVERYTHING about our great city!
Bring out the kids on June 24 for Toy Hall of Fame Day as we pay tribute to all 66 toys that have been inducted at the Strong National Museum of Play - including the 2017 inductees: Wiffle Ball, Clue and the Paper Airplane.
We'll be saluting a pair of movies celebrating their 25th anniversaries this summer: Groundhog Day (June 29) and The Sandlot (Date TBD). We'll celebrate the second-most wonderful time of the year with a Christmas Story in July (July 18) as we honor the 35th anniversary of the timeless holiday classic.
We're going fauxback on May 26 as the Rochester Hop Bitters. This will be the first in a series of nights in the coming years where we'll pay tribute to old nicknames of Rochester professional baseball clubs before the Red Wings came to life in 1928. The Hop Bitters played in Rochester in the late 1800's!
Along with Kids Eat Free Mondays (first 500 kids get a free hot dog, snack item and soda), $1 Wednesdays ($1 hot dogs, peanuts, cracker jacks and chips) and College Thursdays (game ticket plus 5 Diamond Dollars for just $10 for college students with valid ID), we're excited to announce T-shirt Tuesdays in 2018. Every Tuesday beginning on May 15 we'll be giving away at least 500 t-shirts to fans. Each of the eight T-shirt Tuesdays will feature different designs and some will have distribution to 1,000 or 1,500 fans.
Of course, Thursdays Are For The Plates in 2018! Every Thursday we'll wear the black and yellow, but look out for some big announcements regarding a couple of our Thursday games this season.
We have a Frontier Field-record FIVE Bark in the Parks (April 8, April 22, May 6, May 27, July 5) on tap next season. We've expanded our Dog Pound section in 2018, allowing fans and their four-legged friends to sit on the left field grass berm as well as beyond the outfield fence. Also new, fans and their dogs will be able to participate in a pre-game, on-field parade prior to every Bark in the Park game.
Want to laugh? See us on May 25 for Comedy Night. Want to be amazed? Head down to the ballpark for Magic Night (Date TBD). Want to renew your vows? You can do just that on Renew Your Vows Night May 18.
The Frontier Field staples of Star Wars Night (May 4), Batman Night (Date TBD), Post-Game Fireworks (17 shows beginning May 19), the ZOOperstars (June 9 and August 11), RPO Concert (July 20), Country Concert (July 21 - Act TBD), First Responder's Day (July 22), Play catch with Dad Day (June 10) and our Memorial Day Celebration (May 28) which includes $5 tickets and 50-cent hot dogs all return to the 2018 promo calendar.
