Carneal to Headline Opening Day
The Mankato MoonDogs of the Northwoods League have published their promotional schedule, headlined by an appearance by Hall of Fame member, Herb Carneal. Herb will be part of the opening day ceremonies that take place on Monday, June 2nd against the St. Cloud River Bats at 7:05 pm.
Opening day, presented by Wells Fargo, will include a luncheon at the Best Western featuring Carneal as the keynote speaker, magnet schedules to all fans at the 7:05 game, a special appearance by Wally "The Beerman” and a post-game fireworks extravaganza.
