YouTube Sensations Dude Perfect at Riders Game July 20 for Special Night

February 26, 2018 - Texas League (TL) - Frisco RoughRiders News Release

FRISCO, Texas - They're just a few dudes who done good. Well, better yet, perfect.

On Friday, July 20, the online trick-shot sensations, better known worldwide as Dude Perfect, visit Dr Pepper Ballpark live for the first time at a Frisco RoughRiders game for Dude Perfect Night. Dude Perfect Night is just part of an unbelievable summer as the RoughRiders roll out the BIGGEST promotional schedule is baseball history.

While Dude Perfect has worked with the RoughRiders in three web-busting videos, Dude Perfect Night is a unique opportunity for RoughRiders fans to meet and interact with this internationally-famous and Frisco-based sports entertainment quintet, and perhaps Panda, in person.

Dude Perfect will also take part in the game presentation when the RoughRiders, the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, face the San Antonio Missions. First pitch is 7:05 p.m. and Dr Pepper Ballpark gates open at 6 p.m. (5:30 p.m. for Founders members).

Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones, Tyler Toney, and twins Coby and Cory Cotton are no strangers to the home of the RoughRiders. Three videos have been shot there totaling nearly 44 million views. The latest video titled Baseball Trick Shots has garnered nearly 16 million views since debuting on Oct. 23, 2017. The other videos are Baseball Edition (13 million) and Dallas Stars Edition (15 million).

"We all grew up playing baseball and always enjoy going to RoughRiders games, so to have our own Dude Perfect Night at the ballpark is going to be fun for us and all the fans that come out to spend our special night with us," Toney said.

The Riders are going all in on Dude Perfect for their special night. The team will be outfitted in specially-themed Dude Perfect jerseys (unveiled at a later date) to be auctioned off during the game to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Dude Perfect will take part in the postgame jersey presentation to the auction winners.

Dude Perfect Night opens with all five members taking part in one of the most unique ceremonial first pitches ever seen. Inning breaks will feature Dude Perfect video highlights, along fans trying to duplicate Dude Perfect's one-of-kind trick shots. A public meet and greet with limited availability will take place at Bull Moose Saloon from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Additional fan giveaways will also be announced at a later date.

Dude Perfect became YouTube stars after bursting on the online scene in 2009 while still students at Texas A&M. The group is currently the No. 1 sports channel on YouTube with more than 27 million subscribers and 4.6 billion views.

Dude Perfect has also worked with stars in and out of the sports world, including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul, actor Paul Rudd, singer Tim McGraw, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and singer Luke Bryan.
