Homestand Highlights for April 6-11, 2019

The opening ceremonies at today’s game were awe-inspiring as always.  It was great to see the Hall of Famers, although I missed seeing Red. Today’s game didn’t go as planned.  Sure, Goldy and DeJong hit home runs, but they weren’t enough to win the game.  But there are still a few games left on this homestand and there is still time to turn things around.  Will you be going to any of the next few games?  There are lots of theme nights and giveaways the next few days, so here’s all the information you need to know:
