BRYAN - The Brazos Valley Bombers are in the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The opening round will begin on Sunday, August 9th at the Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark as the Bombers host the Victoria Generals.
The Montelongo’s Diamond Derby is back! This Sunday at the Brazos Valley Bombers’ first home playoff game, Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry will provide 25 lucky fans with $7500 in jewelry which includes 24 blue topazes and the grand prize- a half carat diamond.
The excitement of the playoff game will lead off with the third annual Diamond Derby, which will begin before the first pitch.
