Beach Bums To Host Blue/gold Scrimmage On May 10

TRAVERSE CITY, MI – The Traverse City Beach Bums are excited to announce that they will hold a Blue/Gold intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday, May 10 at 1 p.m. at Wuerfel Park.

The event, which is free to the public, will be the lone opportunity for fans to catch a glimpse of the Beach Bums prior to the season opener on Friday, May 16 at Gateway. Gates will open at 12 p.m. on May 10 and the Wuerfel Park concession stands and gift shop will be open throughout the game. In addition, Suntan and Sunburn will be on hand after their long hibernation during the harsh winter.

Fans can also enter to win great prizes throughout the day, including, among other items, a Beach Bums autographed bat and jersey. Businesses can also take part in prize drawings, as the Beach Bums will be giving away a sidewall banner ad and a radio spot for the 2014 season. Winners must be present to win the prizes.

The intrasquad scrimmage will be a final showcase for the 2014 Spring Training season as first-year manager Dan Rohn will use the game to help set his 2014 roster. The scrimmage setup is not finalized, but is expected to last between seven and 11 innings.
