February 10, 2020 - Carolina League (CarL) - Lynchburg Hillcats News Release

Lynchburg, Va. - The Lynchburg Hillcats, A-Advanced affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, have revealed their all-new 2020 promotional schedule filled with live music, giveaways, fireworks and fan friendly deals for the upcoming Hillcats season at City Stadium.

Baseball season in Lynchburg kicks off in a big way with a special Opening Night extravaganza at City Stadium on Monday, April 13th.

Different from years past, the Hillcats offer a brand new promotion, High-5 to our Fans, featuring $5 general admission tickets to all fans for every game in April and May. Additionally, the Hillcats have unleashed $2 Tuesday, consisting of $2 general admission tickets and $2 concession specials every Tuesday throughout the entire season.

The Hillcats will distribute giveaways to fans on every Friday home game from June-September, with Bobbleheads, t-shirts, and hats being just a few of the unique items fans can receive. A one of a kind throwback Lynchburg Shoemakers Bobblehead will honor the original Lynchburg baseball namesake, while a Baby Southpaw Bobblehead and a Hula Southpaw Bobblehead will also be available as a giveaway. Specific dates for all giveaways will be released at a later time through social media. Additionally, there will be eight fireworks shows at City Stadium throughout 2020, occuring every Saturday night from June-September, including the Fourth of July.

The annual Say No to Drugs Day will be back at the ballpark on April 15th with a special 1 p.m. start time. The first Friday of the season the Hillcats celebrate the much anticipated Bark in the Park Night. Lynchburg will also host the 12th annual Autism Awareness night and the 14th annual Swing For the Cure Night. The ever-popular Margaritaville Night is back to excite fans in 2020 with a Jimmy Buffett cover band pre-game and live Jimmy Buffett music during the post-game fireworks.

Military Appreciation Weekend returns to City Stadium in 2020, featuring specialty uniforms worn by Hillcats' players and coaches that can be bid on by fans. Star Wars Night will also showcase specialty jerseys, along with a '434' uniform in honor of Lynchburg and the surrounding community that the Hillcats call home.

Lynchburg will host the Carolina League All-Star game on June 23rd, marking the first time the Hillcats have hosted the event since 1995.
