Via press release from Stone Crabs Marketing Manager Regina Van Henkelum.
The Stone Crabs look to have another great season with the help of their 2012 promotional schedule, which features more of their popular fireworks shows and entertainment acts as well as dozens of special theme nights that are sure to get fans in the mood for Minor League Baseball.
The Stone Crabs jump start the 2012 season against the Ft. Myers Miracle on April 5 at 6:30 p.m.. Then return home again on April 12 for a six game homestand against the Jupiter Hammerheads and the St. Lucie Mets.
Promotional highlights include: eight fireworks dates; the loveable nerd, Myron Noodleman, making his return to Charlotte Sports Park; popular theme nights like Christmas in July and Military Appreciation Night; and new theme nights like Half-Way to New Years and Emergency Awareness Weekend.
Also added to the promotional schedule for the 2012 season is Look my Hotdog is Green night, where lucky hot dog coinsures will have the opportunity to win cash just by eating a frank. While prepping the Hot Dogs for the game on Thursday, April 26, Stoney and the Stone Crab staff will be adding a little green into the hot dogs, wrapping a total of $1,000 dollars in randomly selected hot dogs.
Another new promotion in the 2012 season will be Win Matt Moore’s Money. The first 1,000 fans through the gate will receive a Matt Moore Bobblehead and 20 lucky fans will have an invitation in the bobblehead box to dash and win $1,000 of Matt Moore’s cash on the field following the game.
The Stone Crabs weekday promotions will include Claws for a Cause Monday, where the Stone Crabs will partner with a local non-profit organization to generate exposure and funds for their cause, Seniors Eat Free Tuesday, Budweiser Two-for-Tuesday, Heritage Night on Wednesdays, which will celebrate a different cultures on each of the 11 Wednesday night games and Thursty Thursday presented by Joe Cracker. These promotions provide fans with wallet-friendly promotions in addition to the affordable ticket prices offered by the Stone Crabs, which range from just $7-12.
One promotion not making its return is Dollar Dog Mondays, however, this season the Stone Crabs plan to offer $2 hot dogs, courtesy of Kayem, at all 70 regular season home games. “We are always looking to find new ways to provide the folks of Charlotte County with affordable, family entertainment. Thanks to our hot dog provider, Kayem, we’ll be able to offer $2 hot dogs every night of the season,” said Stone Crabs General Manager Jim Pfander.
In addition to all these fabulous promotional days the Stone Crabs will have five giveaway nights in which the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive items such as: Magnetic Schedules, Cal Ripken, Jr. Bobbleheads, Backpacks and Rally Towels.
