Bluefish Announce 2011 Promotional Schedule

PRESS RELEASE – The Bridgeport Bluefish today announced the club’s promotional schedule for the 2011 season. The fun-filled entertainment begins on Friday, April 29 courtesy of Printech and continues throughout the year. The first 1,000 fans through the gate will receive a Bluefish Magnet Schedule, while everyone in attendance will be able to witness the first pitch of Bridgeport Bluefish Baseball for the 2011 campaign and meet Fairfield County’s favorite mascot, B.B. the Bluefish all in one night.

The promotional schedule is highlighted by four fireworks extravaganzas and a special promotion for every night of the week. Each Tuesday during the 2011 baseball season, kids will eat free at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard, courtesy of The Big Y. Every child (12 and under) will receive a voucher upon entering the stadium that can be redeemed for one hot dog, a bag of chips and one 12 oz. fountain soda or chocolate milk. Join the Bluefish every Thursday night for “Thirsty Thursday’s” presented by Budweiser, while the work week closes with “Freebie Fridays.” On every Friday night throughout the season, featured giveaway items include Team Photos, T-shirts and Baseballs. Sunday’s at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard will be Family Fun Days. Be sure to get to the ballpark early every Sunday as some of your favorite Bluefish players will be on the field for autographs before the game. As if that wasn’t enough, stick around for the post-game kids run the bases, presented by CHET.

The Bluefish will also host exciting theme nights, including Say No to Texting and Driving Day, a post-Mother’s Day celebration, African American Heritage Night, an Antique Car Show, a Sock Drive presented by Solider Socks, and a Bikes for Kids Event. The complete 2011 promotional schedule is listed below.

Also, new for 2011 will be Twitter Tuesday and Facebook Friday.
