Akron RubberDucks Homestand Highlights (August 30 - September 2)
(AKRON, OHIO) - The Akron RubberDucks begin a Labor Day Weekend jam-packed with affordable family fun tonight at 7:05 p.m. against the Erie SeaWolves, and the final homestand of the 2019 has something for everyone!
Tonight features the Akron Children's Hospital Showers Family Center For Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders Celebration. Players will wear special patient-designed jerseys, which will be auctioned off on the concourse during the game. After the third inning, the emotional Home Run For Life ceremony will take place. With both teams lining the bases and fireworks in the air, two young cancer-surviving patients run the bases and meet their families and doctors at home plate to celebrate life. Following the game, will be a Sheryl Crow themed fireworks show.
Saturday is the 30 in the 330 - 30-Year Celebration (of Double-A baseball in Northeast Ohio) at 7:05 p.m. with Francisco Lindor bobblehead giveaway (1st 1,000 fans), a jersey auction of the game-worn authentic home white jerseys, and post-game Imagine Dragons themed fireworks. Sunday is a special 6:05 p.m. start for Harry Potter Night. The Ducks will auction off the game-worn fauxback jerseys and there will be post-game Harry Potter themed fireworks. It is also an Akron Children's Hospital Family FUNday with pre-game catch on the field and post-game Kids Run the Bases, courtesy of Fedex Custom Critical. Labor Day's 1:05 p.m. game is the annual Fan Appreciation Day, filled with prizes from team partners as well as signed jerseys, baseballs, and other items from the RubberDucks, Cleveland Indians' injury rehabbers and more!
