Skeeters 2017 promotional schedule
The 2017 Skeeters promotional schedule features popular giveaways and will once again include fan favorites, as well as new weekly promotions.
With the return of Margarita and Dollar Dog Mondays, fans can enjoy dollar hot dogs and discounted margaritas during every Monday game. Other returning weekly promotions include Thirsty Thursday featuring $2 beer and sodas and post game fireworks shows on Fireworks Fridays.
Sunday Fundays will also return this season, offering a number of family-friendly activities including pre-game autographs and catch on the field, as well as post game kids run the bases (sponsored by Dr. Larry Caldwell). Saturday games throughout the entire season will feature a post-game concert or fan giveaways.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays have been kicked up a notch with Two For Tuesdays featuring buy-one-get-one field box tickets and half priced groups, while Kids in Free Wednesdays allow Skeeters fans 12 and under free admission.
The 2017 season opens with an Opening Day Ceremony welcoming back the 2016 Atlantic League Champion Skeeters and post game fireworks shows on April 20 and April 21. The first 2,000 fans in the gates on April 20 will receive a replica championship ring courtesy of Assured Flow Solutions and a 2017 schedule magnet. A Skeeters baseball cap courtesy of MemberSource Credit Union will be given to the first 2,000 fans in attendance on Saturday, April 22.
Many fan-favorite promotions are being brought back for the 2017 season including Pink in the Park (May 12), Bark in the Park (Sept. 4) and Faith and Family Night (Sept. 16). A number of new promotions and giveaways will be featured this season as well, including Parrothead Night (June 24), Craig Biggio Hall of Fame bobblehead giveaway (July 15), and Swatson bobblebelly giveaway (July 16). This season, fans can also receive a beach towel courtesy of Houston Swim Club (May 7) and a lunch box courtesy of Texas Direct Auto (Sept. 2).
There are also a number of promotions geared towards younger Skeeters fans. The Skeeters reading program, which visited over 60 schools this offseason, provided 70,000 students with a chance to receive two free tickets by reading four books.
Those students who learned how to become a super student and a champion with the help of team mascot Swatson can turn in their earned tickets for games on May 7 (Sunday Funday), May 14 (Diamond Dig), May 21 (Candlelighter’s Day), May 23 (Baseball in Education Day), and June 11 (Lightning Phone Fans Giveaway).
Once school is out for the summer, the Skeeters will host Super Splash Day on June 14 and July 19. Super Splash Day allows families and youth camps the opportunity to enjoy a day game (11:05 a.m.) while participating in in-game water balloon fights, get sprayed down with hoses, and other water games. The Skeeters have also partnered up with a number of little leagues for spirit/fundraising nights that will include team parades on the field before the game among other fun activities for the youth players.
