PRESS RELEASE – The Crawdads are excited to unveil a new alternate identity for the 2020 season. The Crawdads will be taking the field for three games this season with a new alternate identity: the Hickory Couch Potatoes, presented by Kincaid Furniture Outlet.
Beginning on Thursday, June 18th, the ‘Dads will take on the Couch Potato moniker and will wear the specialty uniforms through Saturday, June 20th. On Saturday, the first 1,000 fans will receive a Couch “Potato Bank” as they enter the stadium.

The full promotional schedule will be unveiled next Friday, March 13th. Online single game tickets sales will begin on Friday, March 20th and in-person at the Spring Fling on March 21st.
