A full season of Belle Plaine Tigers town team baseball returns this weekend with a pair of contests scheduled at Tiger Park. (Unless it doesn’t. But it should! For sure. We think …)
On Friday night, April 30, the Glencoe Brewers of the Crow River Valley League will kick off the season at 7:30 p.m.
It’s your old favorite, Dollar Dog Night, meaning $1 hot dogs for the course of the game.
On Sunday, May 2, the River Valley League schedule begins with a visit from the Arlington A’s at 2 p.m.
The promotion is Edina Realty (Susy Dahlke) and Edina Realty Mortgage (Shane Hofmann) Day, which means FREE root-beer floats and prizes!
Because of Covid-19 concerns, the Minnesota Baseball Association didn’t allow play last season until mid-June.
The Tigers opened June 17 at Green Isle and ended on August 15 in Blue Earth, with an extra-inning loss to Waterville in Region 6C play.
The campaign closed with a 10-7 record – yet another double-digit win season for field manager Matt Ruehling – including a 7-5 mark in the RVL.
After taking a year off, season tickets are back for 2021! The cost has increased to $35, and it is the only season ticket for sale. (“Dugout Club” season tickets will no longer be sold.)
Single-game ticket prices are $4 for ages 18-64, $2 for ages 12-17 and 65-plus, while ages 11 and under get in free.
Be sure to also grab a traditional pocket schedule at the ticket gate or Brad’s Barber Shop.
