To kick off the week of events, Security Service Field will feature "Air Force Appreciation Night" presented by USAA & Pioneer Landscape Centers on Saturday, May 12, which is dedicated to the men and women in the Air Force and features Post-Game Fireworks. The night will feature a special pre-game parachute drop-in by the United States Air Force Parachute Team, Wings of Blue, to deliver the game ball.

On Friday, May 18, the Sky Sox will hold "Fort Carson Appreciation Night" presented by USAA & Pueblo Motorsports Park, which is dedicated to the men and women at Fort Carson. This night's pre-game ceremonies will feature Howitzer Cannons as well as a Mounted Color Guard team to present the colors during the National Anthem. The team will be wearing our special throwback, replica Sky Sox jerseys from the 1950's Sky Sox era. The night will also feature Post-Game Fireworks.
On back-to-back days, the Sky Sox will be holding giveaways when gates open.
