Beach Bums Set For Action Packed Weekend

WUERFEL PARK, MI-- The Traverse City Beach Bums open up their home schedule with a FANtastic Fireworks Friday and a refrigerator giveaway on May 23 to start with a three-game series against the Windy City ThunderBolts.

As part of Friday night’s festivities, the Beach Bums will be giving away a refrigerator to one lucky fan. Fans can sign up during the game and must be present to win when the refrigerator is given away between the end of the game and the postgame fireworks. Magnet schedules will also be given away to the first fans in the ballpark.

Saturday night, the Beach Bums will hold their annual “Some Gave All” Memorial Day tribute and mini flags will be given to the first fans in the ballpark. There will be a pregame ceremony honoring those who have served in defense of our country.

Sunday is a Family FUNday Sunday and National Missing Children’s Day with the Beach Bums. Kids tickets on Sundays are half price and there will be a full team autograph session with a poster giveaway after the game. Kids ages 5-12 can run the bases after the contest.

Also during Sunday’s game the Beach Bums are joining the Take 25 campaign for child safety. There will be a station where parents can take the Take 25 pledge and have ID cards made for their children to help keep them safe.
