Bombers Announce Open Practice Dates, Free to Public
Battle Creek, Mich.—The Battle Creek Bombers will hold their first open workouts of the season this Saturday and Sunday, May 24th & 25th, and you are invited. The preseason workouts will begin at approximately 4:00 PM each day, and admission is free for both sessions at C.O. Brown Stadium. In his first year with the club, Field Manager Dan Trivett is looking to create a stronger connection between the team and the fans. Following the workout, the team will be available for an informal meet and greet. Not every member of the team will be present for the workouts, as some will still be competing with their college teams in conference tournaments and vying for a spot in the College World Series.
The Bombers will begin their season on the road against the Green Bay Bullfrogs on May 27th. The team will return for their home opener against new rivals the Kalamazoo Growlers on Thursday, May 29th at 7:05 pm. Fans 21 and over will receive a free Bombers jersey as a part of the first Thirsty Thursday of the season. Fans of all ages will be treated to the wild antics of the nationally acclaimed Inflatamaniacs. Be sure to join the Bombers at C.O. Brown Stadium all summer long as they fight to earn a Northwoods League Championship.
