BRYAN -- Summer is here and the Bombers are back for their second season at Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark! With the season just a week away, the Bombers will be kicking off their season in style with the First Annual Fan Fest. It will be a night full of fun and activities as fans will get to meet this year’s players and participate in the festivities. Fan Fest is this Saturday, June 7 from 6-9pm and admission is free, so come join the Bombers out at the ballpark!
The ballpark will be buzzing with excitement as the new additions to the concession stand will be available, inflatables will set up, and kids will have a chance to showcase their skills in the Nintendo Wii Home Run Derby. The night will kick off with the players and season ticket holders getting a chance to show off their hitting skills in batting practice. Following batting practice, the players will put their power on display in the Home Run Derby. Last year, the Bombers squared off against Mineral Wells in the Home Run Derby. Keith Stein hit nine home runs, falling one short of Mineral Well’s Brice Cutspec, who won the contest with 10 home runs. This year’s new power hitters like Cliff Vaughn, Dustin Dickerson, and Trey Sperring will try to set their own records in the derby. After the home run contest, fans will have the opportunity to meet the players and get autographs.
There are many exciting promotions that will be available all season at Bomber games. Thirsty Thursday’s returns this season, as $1 beers and $0.50 soft drinks will be available every Thursday night.
