PRESS RELEASE – With baseball season rapidly approaching, the Lancaster JetHawks have unveiled their 2011 promotional schedule. The JetHawks have a plethora of exciting promotions on tap for 2011, including 11 fireworks shows, unique giveaways and a bevy of theme nights. Additionally, a revamped lineup of weekly promotions is available for JetHawks fans at Clear Channel Stadium this season.
The promotions begin Opening Weekend with two giveaway nights and a post-game fireworks show in the first three games of the season. The first 1,200 fans in attendance for Lancaster’s April 7 opener against the High Desert Mavericks will receive a JetHawks magnet schedule courtesy of Wells Fargo. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m. Fans can enjoy the first post-game fireworks show of the season following the second game of the JetHawks-Mavericks series on April 8. On April 9, the first 1,200 fans to enter Clear Channel Stadium will receive a reusable stadium cup, which can be used for discounted soft drink re-fills throughout the season.
Aside from Opening Weekend, there are plenty of fabulous promotions that fans can enjoy at the Hangar throughout the season. In addition to caps, T-Shirts and drawstring backpacks, the JetHawks have several unique giveaway items scheduled for 2011, such as fleece blankets, a KaBoom coin bank, and a stadium dust globe.
“Each season it gets increasingly difficult to out-do ourselves,” said JetHawks Director of Promotions Jeremy Castillo. “But I’m confident with what we have planned and a few surprises along the way, that this will be an unforgettable season at the Hangar.”
The 2011 season also features numerous theme nights. Traditional favorites such as Jimmy Buffett Night, Aerospace Appreciation Weekend and Military Appreciation Weekend are back along with Gleek Night, a celebration of Glee, Fox’s popular television series, and Heritage Nights, a weekly celebration of the Antelope Valley’s rich diversity and culture. The JetHawks will also honor local heroes with the Guns versus Hoses softball game, between the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the L. A. County Fire Department. The game will take place on Sunday July 24, prior to the JetHawks game against Lake Elsinore.
Heritage Nights will take place on every Tuesday home game throughout the season, beginning with German night on April 12 when the JetHawks play host to the San Jose Giants. Fans will be able to purchase internationally-inspired cuisine from the concessions stands and listen to music from each culture as well as enjoy some unique between innings promotions which will highlight the heritage of each nationality and ethnic group.
The JetHawks will host the premier Independence Day celebration in the Antelope Valley on Monday, July 4th when Lancaster squares off against the Bakersfield Blaze at 7 p.m. A post-game fireworks extravaganza will follow the ballgame.
Fans can take advantage of a wide variety of weekly promotions at Clear Channel Stadium this season. Every Monday home game is Mmm Mmm Monday, with half price sandwiches and $1 hot dogs available at the concessions stand. Heritage Nights take place every Tuesday home game followed by We Win You Win Wednesdays. Fans in attendance when the JetHawks win a Wednesday home game will receive free tickets to the next Wednesday home game.
Cheers Buck Beers returns for 2011, with $1 domestic draft beers and discounted soft drinks available at the concessions stand through the 6th inning for every Thursday home game. Every Friday night home game, except for July 9th, is a Fireworks Friday presented by Taco Bell. Post-game fireworks shows will follow each JetHawks Friday home game. Saturday nights are giveaway nights with a new giveaway item each week available for the first 1,200 fans in attendance.
Every Sunday home game is a Big League Dreams/Kids Eat Free Sunday with fans receiving the opportunity to play catch in the outfield before the game. Additionally, kids will get the chance to run the bases after the game and all kids ages 12 and under will receive a voucher for a free hot dog, chips and a drink.
