Biscuits Bake up Fresh Promo Calendar in the "Year of Bacon" at Riverwalk Stadium
Montgomery, Ala. - The Montgomery Biscuits are excited to announce the 2019 promotional calendar featuring 28 giveaways, 24 MAX Fireworks shows, and a lot of Bacon! The sizzle begins on Wednesday April 10th with Opening Night presented by Chick-fil-A, featuring Dueling Pianos and postgame MAX Fireworks. MAX Fireworks will continue to be featured on each Friday and Saturday home game, as well as Thursday July 4th for an Independence Day Celebration.
The Year of Bacon will include a special "Biscuits Zodiac" logo featuring a bacon topped Biscuit. This logo will be featured on giveaway items throughout the summer including May 14th, National Biscuit Day with an oven mitt giveaway for the first 1,000 fans of all ages. National Biscuit day will also include an on-field bacon cap. The Year of Bacon will continue in the concession stands as fans will be able to indulge in bacon topped food items such as burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, the new bacon on a stick, and of course a bacon biscuit.
"We wanted to make sure we are keeping things fresh in all aspects at the ballpark, that is where the idea of the Biscuit Zodiac was born." said Biscuits GM, Mike Murphy. "No one wants a boring Biscuit, so we decided to add Bacon to liven things up!"
2019 will also be a year for civic pride at Riverwalk Stadium as The Biscuits begin MGM Fridays. These Fridays will include recognitions of teachers, first responders, City and State employees, and our Military. The Biscuits will sport powder blue "MGM" jerseys and hats on Fridays, with the exception of two specialty jersey nights; April 26th "Pink Out the Park" night benefiting Joy to Life, and July 5th for a special Alabama Bicentennial celebration
The Biscuits 2019 campaign will feature more specialty uniforms on select MAX Fireworks Saturdays. The Biscuits will wear Star Wars themed jerseys on May 4th for "May the Forth Be With You" Night featuring a visit from the 501st Legion. On June 15th the Biscuits will throwback to the 70's style Montgomery Rebels jerseys and hats featuring an old English "M" logo. This night will include a celebration with former Montgomery Rebels players and coaches. On Saturday May 25th the Biscuits will bring back the Greenbow Night. In lieu of a specialty jersey auction, Greenbow Night 2019 will include a Greenbow Biscuit Character Bobblehead presented by Capital Trailways.
Thursdays and Sundays will once again be giveaway days for The Biscuits. Thursday nights will feature a free t-shirt for fans 15 and older along with Thirsty Thursday drink specials. Sundays will continue to be for members of the Lil' Crumbs presented by Alabama Power featuring catch on the field pre-game, and Coca-Cola Kids Run the bases postgame. Select Sundays will feature "Dress like a player" giveaways for the first 500 children 14 and under. Other giveaway dates include a Mother's Day wine glass for women 21 and up presented by Filet and Vine on May 12th and a Father's Day Tie on June 16th.
"Our goal is to have something for the whole family." said Brendon Porter, Biscuits COO. "Whether you are 5, 25, 55, or 95 you should be able to come to the ballpark, have a great time, and on select nights go home with a keepsake that you can proudly wear around Montgomery."
Speaking of fun for all ages, each Monday will once again feature promotions targeted towards the more seasoned Biscuits fans who take advantage of the Golden Biscuit Club presented by Arrowhead Country Club. Other day of the week promotions continue to be enhanced with Triple Play Tuesdays presented by Warren Averett. Tuesday's will continue to be food focused but The Biscuits have expanded from Dollar Dog days, and will feature $1, $2, and $3 food options. Fans can continue to bring canned food items on Tuesdays to be donated to the Montgomery Area Food Bank in exchange for a free hot dog.
Along with the annual Military Appreciation Night (Friday May 3rd) each Wednesday will continue to feature Military Wednesday ticket specials for active duty and retired Military members as well as a weekly Military Spotlight presented by Golden Corral. These Military Spotlights will expand this season and culminate with a Military Card set giveaway on August 21st. Families and friends can nominate Military members for the Spotlight, and each honoree will be included in the baseball card set.
"After winning the Southern League's promotional and Patriot awards in 2018, we felt like we needed to continue to push the envelope with our promotions and recognitions." Said Murphy. "What we have in store for our fans in 2019 will continue to enhance their gameday experience and create an opportunity to Bake Fresh Memories!"
