April 24, 2017 - West Coast League (WCL) - Corvallis Knights
Corvallis, Oregon- Three fireworks nights, a return of the popular Wilson Motors Buyout the Ballpark Night, the always-popular Cowbell and Cap Nights and a $1,000 Kids Dash for Cash highlight the promotional schedule for the Knights 11th season in Corvallis at Goss Stadium.
A popular promotion in minor-league baseball - Star Wars Night - is coming to Goss Stadium for the first time. Fans can interact with their favorite Star Wars characters as part of the fun. In addition, the first 250 kids will get a mini lightsaber courtesy of Country Financial. Throw in Brooke Knight Bobblehead Night; Block 15 Koozie Night; Fred Meyer Family Fridays and a Portland Trail Blazers Night and there are plenty of memories to be made this summer.
Those attractions, and many others, comprise the promotional schedule released by team president Bre Miller.
The Knights open the season on Wednesday, June 7 with their traditional nonconference home game against the Portland Sea Dogs on the sixth annual Science, Engineering & Art Day, presented by OSU Colleges of Science and Engineering.
As is customary, the brightest star in the promotional galaxy is the club's July 3rd Oregon State Credit Union Fireworks Night game against the Bend Elks.
A rite of summer in the mid-valley, the last eight holiday Fireworks Nights were sellouts, with a record 3,506 fans attending the 2009 game.
"We've put together a robust promotional schedule that we think our fans are going to love," said Korey Kozaryn, the Knights promotions & operation manager.
"Fireworks are fun for the entire family. Star Wars Night is one of the most-popular promotions in sports and we are excited to bring it to Corvallis.
"Ladies Night, Halfway to Christmas Night, a bobblehead, and a special $2.41 priced GA tickets on our 241st
Independence Day to celebrate the Fourth of July, Fred Meyer Family Fridays...we have it all!
"Our 11th summer in Corvallis is going to be a home run, as we make Goss Stadium the summer destination for fans
throughout the mid-valley."
The first Fireworks Night, presented by Samaritan Health Services, is planned for Saturday, June 24th, when the Knights
host Bellingham. The third Fireworks Night, sponsored by Pioneer Telephone, is set for Saturday, Aug. 5th as the
Knights take on the Yakima Valley Pippins.
