PRESS RELEASE – The Daytona Tortugas announce their Big SHELLbowski Night for Saturday, July 14th, when Daytona takes on the Bradenton Maruaders at Radiology Associates Field at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The Tortugas will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the cult classic film with the best bobblehead of the year and the biggest party of the summer. Well, that’s like, our opinion, man.
The first 1,000 fans through the gates that night will receive the one-of-a-kind Big SHELLbowski bobblehead, a mixture between The Dude and a Tortuga. Gates will open to the public at 5:30 PM, with first pitch being thrown at 7:05 PM. So make sure you arrive early to get your hands on this historic giveaway.
The Party Pavilion at Jackie Robinson Ballpark will transform into a bowling alley for a pre-game Lawn Bowling Tournament, complete with the sounds of the movie soundtrack and the bars stocked with White Russians.
Participation in the tournament is limited to the first 32 teams of two, so don’t wait to sign up! Registration is available with the purchase of the “Perfect Game” VIP Package, which includes: one team tournament entry, two Big SHELLbowski bobbleheads, two tickets to Big SHELLbowski Night and four tickets redeemable for White Russians.
Winners of the pre-game Lawn Bowling Tournament will receive a rug that will really tie the ballpark together. And don’t worry, White Russians will be available for $3 across the ballpark all night long.
Additionally, the Tortugas entertainment team will be looking for the best Dude, Walter and Donny in attendance. Cosplay of your favorite character is encouraged, so dress up and come out!
