Madison, Wis. – The Madison Mallards 2016 First Pitch Event was highlighted by the 7-Game Pack Promotional Schedule and ballpark improvements.
The Mallards will feature six different post-game fireworks shows that will dazzle and amaze all in attendance. These shows will take place on June 3, June 11, June 18, July 2, July 3, and July 22. The highlight of these shows will be on July 2nd and 3rd as part of the Independence Day weekend. At the conclusion of the Mallards game those nights, there will be post-game concerts followed by the biggest and best fireworks shows yet!
Eight different bobblehead dates will be featured in 2016 including Dentistry for Madison: Dr. Jay Hazen Chris Farley Bobblehead (June 10), Zimbrick Honda Madison State Capitol Maynard (June 16), Balking Dead Maynard (June 30), Pepsi Double Decker Pizza Bus Maynard (July 14), Festival Foods Dancing Rick Bobblehead (July 17), Democratic vs. Republican Maynard Bobblelection, where fans have their choice of either a Democrat or Republican Maynard Bobblehead (July 30), Shoe Box Big Dog Bobblehead (August 4), and The Great Dane Throwback Maynard Bobblehead (August 9).
The friendly animal inflatables of the ZOOperstars will return to the Duck Pond three times this season on June 24, July 9, and August 10. Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey will herd the cattle on the field on June 17, the Human Cannonball will once again fly across the infield on June 23, and the wacky antics of Rally Entertainment will have you laughing your feathers off on August 5. Fans can also enjoy a petting zoo at the three Mallards Sunday games on July 3, July 17, and July 31.
The Mallards also announced a variety of improvements around the ballpark, specifically in the following areas:
TDS Triple Play Club
New seats will be installed in the TDS Triple Play Club area for this summer. The newly renovated space will be rearranged to create more common space for groups. Additionally, it will feature better sightlines creating an overall better viewing experience for fans.
Tricor West Bend Club
The Tricor West Bend Club will now feature brand new high-top tables, creating the perfect social space for your next group outing.
Great Dane Duck Blind Club
The Mallards continue to recycle refurbished bleacher seats around the Duck Pond, creating a new look for the table tops in the Great Dane Duck Blind Club.
The Mallards are also very excited about a brand new 1,200 square foot inflatable sponsored by Meriter and Physicians Plus being added to our kids zone. The new inflatable will include an obstacle course that leads directly into a bounce house! This addition will make a fun compliment to the Inflatable Zipline that was added in 2015.
