The campaign is jam-packed with 14 Fireworks shows including a July 4 Fireworks Extravaganza, numerous theme nights and 24 giveaways, including bobbleheads, hats, beer steins and replica jerseys, just to name a few.
The Isotopes launch the home-slate of the 2020 season with Opening Night on Tuesday, April 14.

Opening Night will also be "Taco Tuedsay" with taco specials located throughout the stadium all game.
The Mariachis series, presented by Modelo Especial, continues on May 9, featuring a post-game Fireworks show presented by Modelo Especial.
