Madison Mallards Bring the Fun with 2019 Promotional Schedule
Madison, Wis. - The Madison Mallards have announced a summer full of fun with the release of their 2019 promotional schedule. With a lineup highlighted by celebrity appearances, quirky theme nights, fan favorite firework nights, and an array of collectible bobbleheads, there's bound to be something for everyone. The season is punctuated by a variety of unique ticket specials, featuring the all-new Pepsi Walk-Off Wednesday's and Chick-FIl-A Friends and Family package available on select nights throughout the summer.
"We are excited to roll out our best promotional schedule that we've ever had," said Mallards General Manager Tyler Isham. "This year's schedule has something for all ages, and we can't wait to start bringing the fun on May 28th. You can expect to see great baseball on the field, and entertaining acts, theme nights, giveaways, and fireworks shows off it at the Duck Pond this summer."
The Mallards have cultivated exciting theme nights for the 2019 season. Family-friendly staples, Superhero Night with Batman, Iron Man, and Wonder Woman presented by SSM Health and Princess Night with Elsa, Belle, and Jasmine presented by A1 Furniture and Mattress, will take place on June 6 and July 7 respectively, both featuring pre-game costume parades. In the realm of television and film, the Mallards are hosting The One Where You Go to a Mallards Game: FRIENDS Night on July 9, The Lion King night presented by Marcus Theaters on July 19, Toy Story Night with Buzz and Woody t-shirt giveaways on July 10, and Harry Potter Night on July 31 to celebrate Harry's birthday. The Mallards are also taking a gamble on What Happens at the Duck Pond...Vegas Night presented by The Zone on August 10.
If You Like Dogs:
The Mallards are bringing back the best combination since peanut butter and jelly: dogs and baseball. Bark in the Park Night will take place on July 24, so you can bring your four-legged friend to the Duck Pond. Another fabulous feature of 2019 is pre-game puppy yoga (featuring Custom Canines Service Dog Academy) presented by Group Health Cooperative on July 18; bring your best downward dog pose! Speaking of dogs, you can get hot dogs for $1 on the Bang for your Duck game on June 12, also featuring $1 Pepsi products, $2 domestic beers, and $2 Stoddards's Country Grove Market traditional brats.
The Mallards are featuring six collectible bobbleheads this season. Kicking off the lineup is the Beekeeper Maynard, presented by Dentistry for Madison: Dr. Jay Hazen for Save the Bees Night on Friday, June 7. Up next is Backyard Baseball legend, Pete Wheeler, presented by Festival Foods on June 14. The Mallards are honoring one of their own Hall of Fame Fans, Ronnie, with the Ronnie bobblehead presented by The Shoebox on July 11. To commemorate the final season of Game of Thrones, the Millie of Dragons bobblehead presented by Pepsi will be featured on July 14. The Mallards will also celebrate two anniversaries, starting with the 50 year mark of the Moon Landing (or was it?). The Moon Maynard bobblehead giveaway on July 20 presented by Zimbrick Honda will feature Moon Maynard and Conspiracy Moon Maynard, with it being a mystery as to which one of the two fans will receive in their box. Capping off the bobblehead series is Wolf Pack Maynard presented by The Great Dane, a nod to the 10 year anniversary of the movie The Hangover, on August 10. The entire 2019 bobblehead series is presented by WKOW TV.
