Military Appreciation Weekend

The Toledo Mud Hens will become the Toledo "Stingers" for two nights, to celebrate the Ohio National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing during Military Appreciation Weekend. The 180th Fighter Wing, based out of Swanton, Ohio, is at the forefront of our nation's security. The more than 1,000 men and women and 20 aircraft are the first defense providing combat ready Airmen for federal, state, and community missions. To honor all current and former military and service personnel, discounted game tickets will be $14 for all military personnel, family and friends (must be preordered). Specialty jerseys, veteran recognition moments, and a special Fighter Jet Muddy bobblehead will make the weekend one to remember.
