ROUND ROCK, Texas - Baseball is back at Dell Diamond! The red-hot Round Rock Express return home from their West Coast roadtrip on Wednesday, June 13 to face a pair of Pacific Conference foes in the Sacramento River Cats (San Francisco Giants affiliate) and the Fresno Grizzlies (Houston Astros affiliate).

The homestand kicks off with Winning Wednesday, presented by Texas Lottery, as fans have the chance to win great prizes all game long. The Express are also joining forces with the Round Rock Area Serving Center to Strike Out Hunger. Fans can bring two canned goods in exchange for one lawn ticket to see the Express face the River Cats.

Thursday's 7:05 p.m. first pitch against Sacramento features The Original Thirsty Thursday, presented by Firetrol Protection Systems, with draft beer specials and $1 sodas throughout the ballpark. Friday's series finale includes our latest Brew Review, as Brown Distributing will be sampling different offerings in the Nolan Ryan's Beef Fireball Grill (while supplies last). The night will conclude with Bud Light Friday Fireworks.

Fans will want to motor on down to Dell Diamond on Saturday, June 16 for the annual 80s Night, presented by Pinballz Arcade. The latest installment of Saturdays at the Ballpark, presented by A+ Federal Credit Union, will also include a postgame concert by The Spazmatics as part of the St. David's Summer Concert Series, presented by Dell.

The Round Rock Chupacabras make their third appearance on Sunday, June 17 as part of Minor League Baseball's Copa de la Diversión campaign, a season-long initiative to embrace the cultures and values that resonate with local Hispanic and Latino communities.

Fans are also invited on to the field from 12:00 - 12:20 p.m. for a special Father's Day version of Catch in the Outfield. Kiddos and their dads can bring gloves and a ball to play catch before the Express take the field.

The Express are partnering with Once Upon a Party for a bigger and better Princess Night on Monday, June 18. Fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite storybook character for an exclusive meet-and-greet with royalty.
