Daytona Beach, FL - The Daytona Cubs have released the 2014 regular season schedule, with Opening Night scheduled for Thursday, April 3rd, and the home opener on Friday, April 4th at 7:05p.m. against rival Brevard County with postgame fireworks.
The 2014 scheduled is loaded with annual Jackie Robinson Ballpark favorites, such as Belly-Buster Mondays, Thirsty Thursdays, postgame fireworks shows, and many Cubby's Crew and Silver Sluggers nights as well.
In total, there are 14 scheduled fireworks shows at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 2014. The Daytona skies will light up after each of the 11 Saturday home games, Opening Night, Sunday, May 25th (the evening before Memorial Day), and on July 3rd for Independence Day.
Fans will be able to enjoy their usual all-you-can-eat hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, and popcorn with seven scheduled Belly-Buster Mondays. "Taste of Daytona" will also return twice in 2014 with local restaurants sampling their best cuisine on the Jackie Robinson Ballpark Riverwalk - all included in the Belly-Buster price!
The 2014 schedule features 13 Thursday home games and 12 Thirsty Thursdays (excludes July 3rd), with six of them prior to the All-Star Break and all five Thursdays in July. Thirsty Thursdays feature $1 small sodas and 12 oz. domestic draft beers.
The Daytona Cubs also offer two of the best age-relative deals in Minor League Baseball with Cubby's Crew and Silver Sluggers.
