DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The Daytona Tortugas will continue their seven-game homestand on Friday, August 16, as they welcome the Palm Beach Cardinals, the High-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, to Jackie Robinson Ballpark for a three-game series. Among the highlights of the set is our Beer Fest and special 50th anniversary of Woodstock jerseys on Friday, our Bob Ross Night and bobblehead giveaway on Saturday, plus a t-shirt giveaway on Sunday.
The series gets underway at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 16 with our Beer Fest. The event includes 20 four-ounce drink sampling tickets, a collectible Daytona Tortugas glass, and a general admission ticket to that night's game. The package starts at $30 in advance of the festival and $35 at the door. It will be another Best Dressed Friday at The Jack, as Tortugas' players and coaches will don groovy tie-dyed uniforms in honor of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. The uniforms will be auctioned off throughout the weekend. The Tortugas will also host another Friday Night Happy Hour presented by Kona Brewing, featuring buy-one, get-one Kona beer products and Bud Light from 5:30 p.m. until first pitch. Following the final out, fans will be treated to another magnificent Postgame Fireworks display. First pitch for the series opener is slated for 7:05 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to bring their happy little smiles to the ballpark on a Shell-tastic Saturday, August 17, as we continue one of the best promotions in baseball with our Bob Ross Night 3.0.
