April 30, 2013 - American Association (AA) - Winnipeg Goldeyes
WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Goldeyes begin to defend their 2012 American Association Championship and kick off their 20th season with the opening of training camp this Saturday, May 4, as part of the team's annual Open House.
There are plenty of reasons for fans to be in attendance on Saturday. Not only can season ticket and mini pack holders pick up their tickets, but it's the first day single-game tickets go on sale.
The doors to Shaw Park open at 10 a.m. and the first 1,500 fans to walk through the gates will receive a voucher for a free hot dog and soft drink. The team will take to the field at 11 a.m. for their first workout of the spring.
"This is a great event that we look forward to every year and we are excited to be launching our 20th season alongside our fans," said Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier.
Both merchandise stores at Shaw Park will be open during the day. Fans in attendance can also win prize packs that will be given away during the day and participate in a tour of Shaw Park.
Following this weekend, the Goldeyes will host the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks for a pair of exhibition games on Monday, May 6 and Tuesday, May 7. First pitch for both games is scheduled for 7 p.m. Winnipeg's other home exhibition game is against the University of Winnipeg Wesmen on Friday, May 10 at a special 6 p.m. start time. All tickets for that game are $5.
Season tickets and nine-game mini packs for the 2013 season are available by calling the Goldeyes office at 204-982-2273.
