Madison, WI – July 11, 2008. As the team’s play-by-play announcer Ben Larson is apt to say after each victory; it’s a great day to be a Mallard! Courtesy of Smart Motors, all fans wishing to purchase either bleacher or standing room only tickets for Friday’s game will be asked to withhold payment, as all seats in these sections are free! These tickets can only be obtained by visiting the Mallards box office throughout the entire day (1 ticket per customer, based on availability). For those who already purchased full-price tickets for tonight’s game (prior to Friday), ushers will be handing out vouchers at the front gate good for one free ticket to either the 2008 Northwoods League All-Star Game on July 14th or to the August 4th game versus the rival Green Bay Bullfrogs!
Fans who purchased Great Dane Duck Blind tickets or Home Plate Club seats prior to Friday will also receive a voucher for the future games mentioned above (1 ticket per customer).
On Sunday, July 13, the Mallards will host an All-Star Fan Fest at 2:00 p.m. before giving way to the Home Run Derby at 4:30 p.m. The All-American Challenge will follow at 6:05 p.m., pitting local Home Talent League All-Stars versus a Military All-Star Team. The Mallards will then host the 2008 All-Star Game on Monday, July 14 at 7:05 p.m. broadcast live on ESPNU at the “Duck Pond.” Tickets remain for both dates and can be purchased online at Mallardsbaseball.com or by calling the box office at 608.246.4277.
