After spending a week in the Southwest, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox return to Security Service Field for a brief four-game home series before heading back on the road to close out the month of May. 

Playing in their first season since changing their team identity over the offseason, the New Orleans Baby Cakes make the trip to the Rocky Mountains as the Sox take on the Miami Marlins' Triple-A Affiliate for the first time in 2017.

The series kicks off Tuesday, May 23, at 6:40 p.m. MT and marks the first $2 Tuesday of May and just the third scheduled night of the season. As always, fans can purchase tickets, parking and Coors products for a wallet-friendly two dollars.

The first Wednesday night game of the season on May 24 is another ARC Community Ticket Day, presented by ARC Thrift Stores. Similar to the Monday night games, fans can pick up complimentary ticket vouchers for the 6:40 p.m. MT game at any of the four Colorado Springs ARC Thrift Store locations across the city.

Thursday is the first $3 Thirsty Thursday of May, when all fans 21 and older can purchase a unique craft brew during the 6:40 p.m. MT showdown. May 25th's craft brew is Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale. 

The four-game series wraps up at 7 p.m. MT on Friday, May 26, with the 2017 Heroes Classic. The annual event is a way for the Sky Sox and their fans to raise money and support for the Colorado Springs Police Department, Colorado Springs Fire Department and the Wounded Warrior Project. The team will sport specialty jerseys, which fans can bid on during an in-game silent auction. After the game, a patriotic themed fireworks show will wrap up the fourth homestand of 2017.
